    Everybody now:

    Give me down to there hair
    Shoulder length or longer
    Here baby, there mama
    Everywhere daddy daddy

    Hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair, hair
    Flow it, show it
    Long as God can grow it
    My hair

    Going by the amount of burnt burger patties on the grill:

    “Madam Godiva, this is a Wendy’s!”

    Is GSS scribbling over things instead of using space sheep now?

    Don’t worry mate. She just wants the bath-mat around your waist for a saddle.

    I heard one of the four living creatures saying as with a voice of thunder, “Come.” I looked, and behold, a pale horse, and … wait … hair in eyes. OK, better. Anyways, Hades was following … I think. Darn hard to see. I gotta get a major hairnet. So anyway, there’s this pair of scales. At least I think they’re scales. They might be clacker balls or deely boppers. The devil’s deely boppers. And I heard something like a voice in the center of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius.” And I said, “That’s pretty cheap considering inflation.”

    Using title logic, the warrior can only be the horse.

    “That’s a nice cover, but we can’t show nudity. How about you hide it with some of her hair? Yeah. That’s good, but maybe a little more… a little more… a liiiiiiiittle more… wait, that’s too much.”

    Is that an extra fancy horse tail. Or a stench wafting out of a sewer manhole?
    So many questions.

    @FB: Exactly my thought. The horse is the warrior, thus the woman is named Life. The horse also has the most intelligence in its eyes, more than… let’s say Young Buff Chris Noth, and who knows if she’s even GOT eyes.

    Poor Chris is just relaxing by the grill one night (the charcoal seems to be extra-smoky) when a horse comes up carrying some chick who has no visible head. Who wouldn’t be startled?

    @Leak: Can’t be Wendy’s, they aren’t square. But presuming this is a burger joint, she’s just ridden her horse into the kitchen, which is Just Not Done. She needs to turn around and go back to the gallop-thru lane. Perhaps her full name is Karen Life, and she wants to speak to the manager.

    @ARY: holds up cigarette lighter Far out, man.

    @Tag: I’ve still got nothing clever… Luckily, I knew the GSS regulars would run with it.

    Can’t help thinking there’s more to story of the “suspiciously placed” flowy hair than what’s going on in the book. Like mebbe someone at Bantam asked Rowena to paint a likeness of their wife for the cover art, and said wife who is trying to make partner at the firm found out about it and kyboshed the idea.
