    Kudos for the blurb “un pulp fiction kafkian” = “A Kafkaesque pulp fiction.” That’s actually spot-on for much of PKD’s work.

  2. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Colorblind readers might misread the author name as “Philip K. Dic” – the lesser-known French SF writer behind such novels as “L’Ubik”, “L’Homme Dans Le Chateau Dans L’Univers Alternatif” and “Zatapatique De L’Androide”

    If you have to ask how much this Chia Pet lawn statue is, you can’t afford it.

  7. Hammy Says:

    ‘Timpul dezarticulat’ translates to ‘disarticulated time’, so this must be ‘Time Out of Joint’.

    Artist read the title and took ‘out of joint’ the wrong way, it seems…

    After three hours debating which of so many near-simultaneous gags to post, I’ll leave it to you:

    Forwarned is five-armed

    Announcing the new Swiss Army Streaker

    Michael Clarke backed out of choreographing a ballet of ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’ on seeing the Child-catcher costume

    … and he still can’t scratch that itch in the middle of his back

    Never play Twister when teleporting

    If he hadn’t spent so much on elective surgery he wouldn’t need to go shoplifting.

    what Americans imagine when they hear “Cirque du Soleil”

    Damn these IKEA statues! You can never assemble them right and there’s always extra parts.
