I love slaves. Press that button, I don't want to lean forward!Click for full image

I don’t know about you, but when I think of animal slaves I hate that everyone just thinks of chimps. If I had an animal slave I’d definitely want a Scottish Terrier bringing me my dinner while a seal pleasures me. Mmm, well maybe don’t draw that – but at least put a seal on there!

Brilliant! Thanks to Noah!

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: 7.35 out of 10)

    I’m struggling to think of what jobs could be given to an otter to be better preformed.

    Clean my laundry? Wiggle down that pipe and clean it?

    No wonder he needs help from a chimp – his arms are so short he can’t reach the control console. ALthought to be fair having to fit the chimp’s stool in hasn’t helped.

    I’m not sure that’s an otter. I think its probably a seal. It’s definitely wearing a bow-tie though.

    Good point about the seal! Changed that now.

    And it is wearing a bow-tie!

    And the dog is wearing dog-tags!

    Wow… this one goes deeper than I first realised.

    Good thing they’ve kept the controller interfaces so simple — a lever here, a couple of dials there. Otherwise the animals wouldn’t have a hope. “Manipulate a computer joystick? Without opposable thumbs? Are you mad???”

    Man: Okay Mr Chimp, I need you to calculate the tragectory of that ememy vessel and set a course to intercept it.
    Chimp: Ooooooooooh ooooh aaaahhh ahhh. eeeeeee
    Man: Mr Terrier, clean Mr Chimps feces off the wall…. well, they’re better than Frenchmen.

    Equal opportunities for all indeed.

    Also — written by ‘Po’ off-of the Teletubbies, I see. I never knew his first name was Frederick.

  8. Adam Roberts Says:

    I wonder if that guy had that pot-belly before he got his animal slaves? I daresay it’s not been good for his health.

    that is a steering wheel the dog is turning, right?

  10. Nix Says:

    I’d suggest, btw, that a seal would have a lot of useful jobs in a wet navy. The terrier, though, is thoroughly confounding.

  11. CSA Says:

    oh god, its a Navy Seal

  12. Jose @ Daemon's Says:

    @CSA thats perfect!

  13. Nix Says:

    This *is* Pohl. That pun was surely intended. 🙂

  14. SI Says:

    @CSA – Exactly! We underestimate this cover. I believe we are only piercing the first layer of it’s social criticism.

    I also like that he wears sunglasses. “What? I can’t look good in front of the chimp?”

    The UN has a navy?

  17. Sir Pedant Says:

    Sir, who must you defy to get a Scottish Terrier to serve you dinner while a seal pleasures you? Why it sounds like the start of an exciting adventure of pure defiance. Unless you meant definitely of course.

  18. SI Says:

    The question is who haven’t I defied to get a Scottish Terrier 😛

    Good spot though! Must get around to changing that.

    – “Scotty dog, give me a full report”
    – “It looks like you’ve just blown a seal, Captain”
    – “Heh heh…oh wait, that’s just ice-cream”

  20. Tom Noir Says:

    So THAT’S why they call ’em dog tags!

    Nyuk nyuk.

    Manpower was in short supply, so the UN Navy began drafting…vegetables!

    @tyrone: Secret world government needs a secret world navy. Who do you think flies the black helicopters and enforces the communist/fascist agenda?
