Kevin King Comments: Let’s play blurb Mad Libs: Only a [NOUN] from [PLACE] could reach [PLACE] through the [NOUN] of the [ADJECTIVE] [POSSESSIVE NOUN] [NOUN].

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: 6.22 out of 10)

    “I seek my brother: he was on this very site but a week ago”.

    “Bad news bub, he sleeps with da fishes”.

    “You mean he’s dead?”

    “No, just sleepin’ with fish”.

    This is why you should have taken the butt fire option when you got the mechanical horse.

    “Only a man from Hell…” – While everybody else just took the A57 maelstrom bypass, getting off at junction 12 for Castle Timeless.

  4. Ryan Says:

    He may be a Man from Hell, but at least he chose to wear some sensible jeans underneath the green leather traveling-by-mechanical-horse costume.

    ♫ My horse is of course a robo-horse
    A flying horse, an iron horse
    This is of course a flaming horse
    And I’m the horse’s ass! ♫

    OK herring, but you still haven’t proved you can draw feet.

  7. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @FB: He can’t even draw hooves — he’s got ’em cloven. Which I guess is an available option on your fire-breathing robo-horse. Maybe it helps you hack your way through Manicure Land.

  8. Mel M Says:

    He is regretting that he didn’t pay extra for the robo-horse with the built-in saddle as he’s being flung off. And not for the first time since there appear to be hoof prints on the inside of his cape.

  9. Tor Mented Says:

    No, no, no! I said “Show him riding among the palms.”

  10. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Actually, a bunch of dudes managed to get to Castle Timeless. So, for a change the blurb is less accurate than the picture.

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Worst. St. Patrick’s Day float. Ever.

  12. A. R. Yngve Says:

    Somebody show that cover to Elon Musk. He’ll make a robo-horse for sure – with a flamethrower!

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @ARY: No, he’ll claim to make a robo-horse with a flamethrower.

    It’ll actually be a kiddie ride (either rocking horse or one of those you used to see outside supermarkets) with a heat gun. Stupid outfit sold separately, of course.

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    GSS ex-noob: I was thinking a metal hobby-horse [1] with a built in cigarette lighter myself.

    Sheesh, I had to look for quite a while to see all the nicely-manicured fingernails on the palm forest.

    Maybe the artist thought “The Changing Land” was just a generalization of a changing room (that didn’t come from Sarnath, just so you know), and put lots of hands there to change the diapers of robo-horse-with-flaming-sinuses and Mr. Green-is-my-color-it-goes-with-my-eyes….

    Not that I’m implying that only those who have manicured nails would change diapers. They probably would shy away from that task, as any sane person should.

    Everyone laughed at him when he left Hell to find his fortune, but he did not let his diminutive size get in his way. Soon, Clive was hired by Castle Timeless Happy Nails Salon and was sought by all the giants in the land for his Rapier Edge Nails and Flame Dried Acrylics.
