Gunner, aim directly for her nasal hair!Click for full image

Look, with this we’re in a win-win situation. How could we go wrong with a space ship going through some sort of light speed travel and the captain pointing at a huge shiny hologram of a person? Just as long as we keep the fonts subtle we’ll be fine.

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: 7.21 out of 10)

    ‘Look! Printed letters are three-dimensional but a human face is only a ghostly 2D! The universe is upside-down!’

    My good lord this is a terrible, terrible book cover.

    Hmm, i don’t know Adam. I think it’s pretty good.

    Ensign: Sir, we’ve detected a huge amount of Sarcasm Radiation off the port bow!
    Captain: Take evasive maneuvers!

    All I could think about when I saw this one was, ‘Looks like I’ve picked the wrong week to quit sniffing glue.’

    My first thought was ” What does GOD need with a starship? “

    Wow…. just…. wow…..

    I remember when I used flash and I learned how to move layers.

    It must have been sore to hold his/her arm pointing like that for so long.

  8. James Lovegrove Says:

    I could watch that over and over. In fact, I just did. See how many pointing fingers there are! Point, fingers, point. This way, now that way. POINT, damn you!

    “Look out, Captain! The ‘New York Times Best-Selling Series’ spiky panel is trying to sneak up on you!”

    Also, “The New Honorverse Novel” sounds like some really obscure perversion.
    Heh-heh-heh… they say I’m honorverse… are you? Heh-heh-heh…”

    Doink. Doink. Doink. “I’m poking you in the face.”

    Let’s go over your plan of attack, captain.
    Well, admiral, my idea is to go here, at the side of your mouth, where I will be in a perfect flanking position not only to attack your chest region but also to press on further, all the way to the crotch area.
