Good Show Sir Comments: Sorry for the interruption in service the past couple days. Chinese GSS hijacked our server to mine Bitcoins. GSS Prime members will receive a pro-rated refund of their monthly fee.

Now back to our usually-scheduled terribleness.

Published 1988

Actually, that cover IS a classical work of art!I would touch it without protective gloves.I've seen worse. Far, far, worse.Interesting, but I would still read it in public.Middlng: Neither awful nor awfully goodWould not like to be seen reading that!Awful... just awful...That belongs in a gold-lame picture frame!Gah... my eyes are burning! Feels so good!Good Show Sir! (Average: 7.50 out of 10)

    I’m intrigued that the kid from ‘East is East’ is in the dock (over on the right, next to John Landis).

    The QC seems to be Michael Sheen as Kenneth Williams. I can’t help thinking of that line from ‘Bona Law’.

  2. Ryan Says:

    I was going to say that it was nice to have GSS back, but then I saw this cover.

  3. THX 1139 Says:

    This cover’s trying so hard it’s done itself a mischief.

  4. JuanPaul Says:

    Quest for 36? Sorry, but Lyndon Johnson is not walking through that door.

  5. Bruce A Munro Says:

    TheTzadikim Nistarim? (I suppose the guy with the Earth-themed beach ball is metaphorically carrying the weight of the world…)

    They don’t look like a particularly humble bunch.

    “The Quest for the 36” published by Questar Books. Coincidence? I think not.

  7. fred Says:

    This cover makes any random episode of ‘The Gong Show’ look like high culture.
    Cue Rip Taylor.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Since the Righteous 36 are unknown to each other, is it possible they all post on GSS? Perhaps we are all לאַמעדוואָווניק?

  9. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    …but humility will prevent any of us confirming that.

  10. Raoul Says:

    @BC – Last time I checked we’re a couple dozen short of 36 around here.

  11. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Raoul—Only GSS Admin knows the One True Number, and they ain’t talking, except in tongues.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Yeah, if those are the Righteous 36, Earth is doomed.

    @Ryan: LOL.

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    C’mon! This is a funny, deliberately goofy cover – and quite slick, too.

  14. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Even for “goofy”, there’s no excuse for the lavender and the title font.

  15. Francis Boyle Says:

    I’m with THX 1139. There’s a not so fine line between deliberately goofy and trying so hard your guts end up socially distancing you and this one’s just ploughed right through it.
