    When the spice
    Gets in your eyes

    And they drown in sand
    Please make it end

    Eyeballs, I got. Worms, we don’t got.

    Oy vey!

    It’s a book named “Dune” and they didn’t put any dunes on the cover? Or sandworms? Was this supposed to be the cover of a book called “Eyes?”

    @fred: GSS!

    @Dave: The next book has, coming over the horizon, a Visine bottle the size of an Imperial Destroyer. (It’s piloted by the Dune Messiah, y’see, the savior against dry eyes)

    @GSSxN : thank you !

    Picture yourself in the middle of nowhere
    With flat desert vistas and the bluest of skies
    Somebody hears you
    Turns out they’re Israeli
    They heard you say bluest of eyes

    @JJYoyo: Looks farther south than Montana.

    But I can’t fit Utah, Arizona, or New Mexico in there. Maybe somewhere in Israel?

    Got it!

    @GSSxN: quite right, Montana won’t do. I like your idea but how about:
    Lucy in the Negev, with eyeballs!

  14. Tracy Says:

    Not only that, they get the eyes wrong. They’re supposed to be all blue, even the sclera.

    @JJYoyo: By Shai-Hulud, I think we’ve got it!

    Publisher to artist: Uhrm, did you even bother to read the book?
    Artist: Eye did not.
    Publisher: Eye can tell.
