    So now at long last we learn why Devo wear those odd hats…

    What is Not-Uncle Sam recruiting me for?

  4. SI Says:

    Now I’m no brainologist, but I am pretty sure that he’s going to have to use alot of moistureiser to keep that thing from drying up.

  5. Phil Says:

    The Not-Men. Or as I call them, “women”.

  6. Tom Noir Says:

    I hate it when I wake up with brain-hair!

  7. Nix Says:

    Phil, does that look anything like a woman to you? If it does, I’m glad I don’t live in your world 🙂

  8. Kristoffer Says:

    Not to be confused with the Knot-Men, who have replaced their hair with rope.

    “Do YOU want a perm that looks like a brain?”

    One step beyong the M.O.T. Men. Futuristic!

  11. Adam Roberts Says:

    Hmm. I seem to have typed ‘beyong’. I’m not even sure what a ‘beyong’ is.

  12. Phil Says:

    Nix, you have a good point. One of us – not sure which – has committed an error in Aristotelian logic:

    This is a Not-Man.
    All women are not men.
    Therefore this is a woman.

    Does not compute! Does not compute! Does not…

    Hey! Eyes are down here!

    I’m not only the president of the Brain Club for Not Men, I’m a satisfied customer!

    Looks like Rimmer caught Lister’s space mumps.

  18. James Says:

    Early draftes of the cover blurb must have read,
    “This is the terrifying story of a grotesques but superior race that threatens to wipe out a mankind with its hair-brainded schemes.”

  19. BohicaSnafu. Says:

    Looks like Charlie Sheen with head trauma. Wait, he already has that.

  20. Don Hilliard Says:

    “I whip my brain back and forth…”

  21. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Bob, you’ve got something on your forehead…”

  22. arch9enius Says:

    How are they gonna wipe out mankind with their squishy parts exposed? Start somewhere where housebricks, beer cans or fire extinguishers are not typically to hand?
    See the MST3K movie for how to deal with attempted invasions by exposed-brain types.

  23. Tom Noir Says:

    Does The Big Brain know we have his long-lost creepy older brother around here?!?

  24. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Too late, Bob realised that he had pressed the ‘eject my brain’ button!

    @Adam: ‘Beyong’ is the noise that his skull cap makes as it’s launched into the air. ‘Beee-yonggg!’

  25. A.R.Yngve Says:

    I Want YOU
    To Join The U.S. Barmy

    Could be a typo: “The Nut-Men” with walnuts on their foreheads. Maybe their only weakness is The Nutcracker.
