    Glad the cover cleared up any possible confusion about the year 3307 being in the future.

    C’mon, a novel of the future is only moderately evil.

    Judging by the amount of ting the woman is the possessor of the worlds most powerful bobby pin.

    Surely this needs a ” Bread and Butter Pudding ” tag ?

    Like a Hitchcock cameo, HM Hoover often included the random appearance of at least one robotic vacuum cleaner in his futuristic novels.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    In the year 3307 only the human race was capable of such evil.

    Er, unlike the year 2020?

    The hooded man is angry at the wedding cake decorations.

  10. Ryan Says:

    The hooded man was invited to sing at the wedding, but he refused to purchase a bridesmaids’ dress and wore an ensemble of his own devising instead.

    Background guy is yell-singing “In the Year 2525”, only with 3307 and he’s having trouble making it scan and rhyme.

    He’s got to have the hood on to shield his eyes from the Ting!

    HM Hoover? Is that the vacuum the staff cleans up Buckingham Palace with?

    @fred, THX, B’man: GSS!

    One of these people beats, one sweeps and one cleans,

    The one with the red hat is called Henry, of course.

    “Only the human race was capable of such evil.”

    In contrast to what? Apes? Canaries? Rhododendrons?

  14. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    I’ve never quite trusted Rhododendrons.

    So in the year 3307, evil activity throughout the universe had a bit of a dry spell.
