    Foxy snack.

    @2 Bruce – Pity the movie adaptation of ‘Cold War…’ didn’t get off the ground. Dino De Laurentis.
    And he seems to have made some shorts for the reprint.

    Is what she’s wearing a microkini. Because I’d hate to think she’s inappropriately dressed.

  6. Tor Mented Says:

    Where are the archery weapons? I don’t see them. The only thing I noticed on closer inspection was that the woman is wearing thigh-high kinky boots.

  7. Tat Wood Says:

    What we can’ t see is that the fox, with a nice sense of irony, is wearing a red jacket and white britches.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    I like the way the fox—if it is indeed a fox—has the tip of his tongue sticking out, that sort of “my dog is a little goofy” look.

    @BC: I think we’ve established that’s hunger, not goof.

    I really don’t know about this reboot of “David the Gnome.”

  12. Tor Mented Says:

    Imagine the artwork if the title were “The Microcolonoscopy.”

    Sweetie, your mouthwash just isn’t cutting it.

  16. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I was thinking we’d seen this one before, but I guess we’ve only seen similar, as @Fred and @Bruce suggest.

    Sure, lady. You’re running around in a jungle and you’re practically starkers save for a few decorative wisps, some clunky-heel shoes, and jewelry. And you stop to strike a pose when a giant predator is after you.

    Meanwhile, dude is shirtless, has no string for his bow, and probably no arrows. Have they not noticed the canid BEHIND THEM?

    Dog/fox/whatever deserves the meal.

    @Tor: It would also be in full-color, but glossy. (Seriously. I was given a set of photos after mine. Uh, thanks, doc?)

    @B’man: GSS!

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Does the guy have a bow at all, or is he heroically battling a couple blades of grass?

  18. Tor Mented Says:

    I’m with Bruce on this. I don’t think he has an archery bow — he’s bending a bit of grass. In which case, the tag shouldn’t be archery weapons. It should be a blade.

    Cheesy book cover inspires equally cheesy (box office record holding) movie? It could happen…
