But she didn't buy into the idea of No Shirt SaturdayClick for larger image

Wingding Comments: It all made sense when Deborah met Brad’s Mom, “Birdie”.

You might remember this from here.

Published 1981

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: 8.89 out of 10)

    The episode of Carl Sagan’s Cosmos THEY didn’t want you to see!

    This version of ‘The Maltese Falcon’ intrigues me.

    The perfect cover blurb for Winds of Winter.

    “Sure, you may be able to fly, but look, we got opposable thumbs.”

    “Science has found evidence for the existence of billions and billions of bird-like alien life forms, of which billions and billions are topless women…”

  6. Bob Says:

    “See… she has wings.”

  7. Tor Mented Says:

    Blah blah blah … mention of birds know as tits. Blah blah … reference to birds known as boobies …

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    At UAI it is common wisdom that whenever an artist is at loss for a cover idea, the best move is to just put in some tits and wing it.

    What does a bird-woman need with a chair?

  10. Tat Wood Says:

    @Francis/ Framcis: maybe she’s expecting company? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UGqtH5YWBMM

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    This cosmos is kept private, since it’s too embarrassing for general viewing.

    @Wingding: no, that’s his daughter. Man screwed a lot of giant birds.(They don’t get along: she’s giving him the silent treatment right now.)

  12. GSS ex-noob Says:

    I see from @fred’s link that there are more birds, but how/where does buffalo centaur come into it?

    @Bruce: yeah, I was thinking either his daughter or half-sister, depending on which generation was doing the bird shagging.

    @Francis: to show she’s the queen? Standing around on a branch isn’t regal enough?

  13. JuanPaul Says:

    “See, she has Milk Dud nipples too, and she’s still sexy”

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS ex-noob, @Francis: branch needs a big ol’ tree, and you can’t grow a tree in a cave. You also don’t want a perch that brings bird cages and budgies to mind. On the other hand, with those claws I bet they have to recover the cushion pretty often.

  15. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Bruce AM—Can’t grow a tree in a cave? Allow me to introduce you to the amazing magnum opus of one Baldassare Forestiere!

    From the Baldassare Forestiere website: Then Forestiere had an idea–could he get a tree to grow underground? He began to experiment. He built a planter from the hardpan chunks he dug out and filled it with soil he reconditioned. A skylight was cut at the top of the experimental room, and the tree then planted. He found that with the right amount of sunlight, water, and care, his citrus tree would not only flourish, but would be protected from the frost. How did he do it?

    TC Boyle’s short story, “The Underground Garden,” is a fictionalized treatment of Forestiere’s life.

    Mansplaining boobs

  17. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @B. Chiclitz: having a skylight in your cave roof is IMHO cheating. 🙂

  18. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Definitely cheating.

    @B’man: so she’s saying to him “Yes, I’m familiar with boobs, I’ve got a pair of my own prominently displayed, you moron.” She does look unimpressed/impatient with whatever’s going on.
