    If he’s Irish, how come he ain’t wearing any green?
    (Just kidding.)

  2. A.R.Yngve Says:

    Maildun returns in the stirring sequel

  3. THX 1138 Says:

    Is that object in the background what the hero makes his coffee in?

  4. SI Says:

    Don’t people realise this is an accurate illustration of how all Irish people are. I wake up every morning and make this pose.

    I will avenge you father! Avenge you!!!!

    ‘My odyssey has come to an end! And now, verily, I must exit through the gift shop. So, what is it to be? This replica sword? Or the large piece of avant-garde pottery behind me? Decisions, decisions.’

    But can he dance?

  7. mfabry Says:

    Dalton, seeing his unsteady stance and problems with vision and distance judgment I would say he’s no Michael Flatley! Just a dude who had done too much pub crawling the previous night ..

  8. Tom Noir Says:

    Why does he have a coffee pot growing out of his arm? Is than Irish thing?

    Maybe this is an Irish version of Don Quixote?

    The myopic hero attacks trees and percolators thinking they are dragons … “how dare you insult the good name of Dulcinea del County Clare!”

    And no one has caught that the author is Michael Scott.. … … From the Office?

    2001 BC: A Down-To-Earth Odyssey

  14. GK Says:

    I don’t know where his mullet ends and his cloak begins.

  15. jesika Says:

    this is not the kind of book i would have expected Michael Scott to have written.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    The great irony is that the book is probably marketed towards Americans who imagine they are “Irish” but have only a very vague idea what that means and don’t have a poetic bone in their bodies…

  17. Tom Noir Says:

    “The stirring voyage of Maudlin…”

    Here he is depicted discovering the Holy Salt-shaker.

  18. Jaouad Says:

    Salt-shaker? Looks more like a hookah to me.

  20. AnnaT Says:

    Maildun practiced his heroic pose, unaware of the giant coffeepot approaching him from behind . . .

  21. Severian 67 Says:

    That’s not Maildun! That’s Chuck Norris! And you crazy fools are mocking him. I can’t bear to watch. [runs away]

    I thought Ulysses was the Celtic Odyssey…

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Faith and begorra, ’tis missing the TING tag.

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Little known fact: the Irish invented the beer stein, and kept all of the stout in the land in one enormous tankard until the reign of Elizabeth.

    Maith thú, Éireannach!
