    It’s Val Kilmer to the rescue. Go Val Kilmer go.

    If you really need to know what’s being looked for in the 25th.

  2. Tat Wood Says:

    @Fred: thanks – presumably these are the Marines (Val and the Bee Gees) and they’re looking for good men in Centreparcs.

  3. Tor Mented Says:

    Oh, no! Marlon Brando succeeding in cloning Val Kilmer!

  4. A. R. Yngve Says:

    “DEVO assemble!”

  5. Max Bathroom Says:

    That’s never Devo. Maybe it’s the Aquabats, though?

  6. Francis Boyle Says:

    “It’s the 25th of April and the kids are still looking for those damned Easter eggs. Time to send in the Space-Marines.”

    “First to Fist”

  8. Max Bathroom Says:

    Presumably Starfist is the superpowered version of Nightfist:

  9. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Do these guys know how ridiculous they look or do they actually think they’re cool?

    “Great goggles, Jim.”
    “Swell wristband, Dave.”
    “I’m impressed by your hard-nosed look, Ken.”
    “Watch where you’re pointing that space rifle, Bob.”

  10. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Tat: Since the title is a line from the Marines’ theme song, yep. Had to look up Centreparcs, and indeed, this must be their paintball or laser tag course.

    Also, good ID on the men. Val it is, and that would make the other guy facing us Robin Gibb.

    Although, upon further inspection, @Tor’s likely to be right — it’s just another clone of Val. Are the Space Marines all clones? Are they, in fact, looking for a few good men, or are they simply churning them out in vats? Are the clones look for a few good unrelated men, IYKWIM?

  11. Bruce A Munro Says:

    I see they’re all keeping a cool head.

  12. Ryan Says:

    @B. Chiclitz – Jim, Dave, Ken and Bob are deadly to anyone and anything that appears directly in front of them.

  13. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: GSS and well-spotted. Unlike anything to the left and/or right of these guys, as @Ryan noted. Or above them.

    Do they eventually land on Planet Tripoli, wherein are the halls of Montezuma?

  14. Leak Says:

    @Ryan: can we be sure that their surname isn’t Kerman, and that they aren’t the ancestors of Jebediah, Bob, Bill and Valentina?
