Ashurbanipal Comments Disney World’s new “Mister Toad’s Wild Ride” attraction is something else.

Published 1973

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: 7.33 out of 10)

    Froggy went a-courtin’…

    “As our new Empress, your regalia will be the giant frog hat.”
    “And…?”
    “Just the frog hat.”

    Android dreaming of alternative space sheep.

    Only the intro’s by Frank Herbert (who never met an amphibian he didn’t like) so which story’s got the Bufo-slash?

    I’m not liking some of the alternatives, already…

    She started out innocently kissing the frog to see if he turned into a prince.

    Then the situation got out of hand.

  7. B.Chiclitz Says:

    I think both creatures on this cover, whatever they are, need some attitude readjustment lessons.

    Grant Wood’s “American Frogthic.”

    Jellie Bellie™ really shouldn’t ask the public what new flavors they want.

    What are tomorrow’s alternatives? Next Thursday? A fortnight from Monday? The 37th of June? (I’m assuming this is a guidebook for the confused time-traveller.) No doubt the stories are worthwhile but based on the title the book got the cover it deserved.

    I wonder if it’s a horny toad.

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Today is the tomorrow this book was looking towards.

    Yet even with a worldwide pandemic, ecological problems, failure of leadership, looming recession…

    I’m glad this isn’t the alternative!

    I was going to start @-ing people for a hearty GSS, but as it turns out, everyone deserves it. Exceptionally witty, especially for a Monday.

    So GSS to all!

    “We asked you for a cover fit for a collection of stories from some of the greatest minds in SF, and you give us a woman sitting in a giant frog. How do you intend to fix this disaster?”
    ‘… I could make the woman’s nipples visible?’
    “GENIUS! I’ll see you get a (modest) bonus!”

    This is not what is meant by the word “toadstool.”
