    “OK, guys, we’ve focus grouped this and HERE’s the replacement design for the pyramid on the dollar in your pocket!”

  2. A. R. Yngve Says:

    I can’t read Hebrew, but I’m guessing it’s one of the DUNE sequels where Paul Atreides mutates into a sandworm-like form.

  3. fred Says:

    One of John Barrowman’s more imaginative cosplay efforts.

  4. Longtime_Lurker Says:

    ARY: Yup. God-Emperor of Dune, in Hebrew (thanks, TinEye).

  5. Francis Boyle Says:

    Oh, a sandworm. And here I was thinking it was some sort of avant-garde salt and pepper set.

  6. JuanPaul Says:

    That reminds me, I’m due for a colonoscopy.

  7. Bibliomancer Says:

    Google image search is a wonderful thing

  8. Raoul Says:

    What a dickhead

  9. The Blue Are Coming Says:

    Original cover art for *Metamorphosis* before Kafka rejected it.

  10. Rick Deckard Says:

    God, this is hideous.

  11. Tor Mented Says:

    It’s Arnold Schwarzenegger in “Terminator Gynecologist.”

  12. Tat Wood Says:

    The sad thing is, this is pretty much how I remember the book. Four hundred pages of a giant worm talking about yoghurt and why he’s called his all-girl army ‘the Fish Speakers’.

  13. Bruce A Munro Says:

    “Sexy robo-legs? Best gift ever, giant floating eye!”

    OK, the glowing blue eye represents the psychic powers gained by spice-eaters, but since Worm Guy is Top Psychic, why is it balefully shining down on him? Does it mean he’s always keeping an eye on himself because he suspects him of getting up to funny business?

    @Tat Wood: the Dune franchise had nowhere to go but down from that point.

  14. fred Says:

    I’m assuming that’s the severed head of ghola Duncan Idaho.

  15. THX 1139 Says:

    Can’t wait to see this happen to Timothee Chalomet.

  16. JuanPaul Says:

    The Kwisatz Huh?derach

    Jabba the Whut?

    Duncan Idunno?

  17. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Boy, if only my arms weren’t useless appendages fashioned out of silly putty™, the things I’d do . . . “

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    This… I… Um… cocks head to side like a confused dog

    WTF indeed.

    This is three-syllable-ugly (Ugh-a-lee!)

    I don’t remember the legs and arms, but I haven’t read the book in a long time.

    GSS to fred, JP (perfect), THX, and JP (again).

    The Mr. says:

    “God is a carrot?”

  20. Leak Says:

    Well, they say “carrots are good for your eyes” – they never said anything about the rest of your body… 🙁

  21. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Leak: or your single staring eye, I suppose.

  22. Hammy Says:

    Something makes me think there’s a punctuation mark missing in this title.

    Should it be “God! Emperor of Dune” or “God, Emperor of Dune” (as in “God, Emperor of Dune, couldn’t you find a more appealing outfit for your school photo?”)

  23. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @Hammy: now I’m imagining Leto Atreides’ high school yearbook: “Voted most likely to become a giant psychic worm-god.”

  24. Emster Says:

    How is this not in the top 10? Ew…

    I had to zoom in twice on the cover photo and am still not sure I’m seein’ what I’m seein’… would re-reading the book help, or just be a waste of time?

  25. JJYoyo Says:

    @Hammy #22: how about Godspeed You! Dune Emperor.

    He can do the Can-Can all by himself.

  26. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Emster: I think it was briefly in the top 10 the week it first assaulted our eyeballs.
