Wait.. who gave you underwear? Let me get those off you and my experiment will be complete!Click for full UNSHEEPED image

Glenn Comments: An alpha male, a naked lady, a cautious beta male, and a 1950ies era high tech explosion. It’s a time capsule. A horrible time capsule.
Published 1958

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: 6.26 out of 10)

    Dr. Spencer’s “Shower of the Future” was not a huge success.

  2. L.B. Says:

    Dude looks like he’s got a headache. We could call it the Hangover Machine instead. ‘Where am I? Who’s this woman? What did I do last night?’

    The Abs Machine

    “Don’t be alarmed, disorientation is perfectly normal after nipple and bellybutton removal.”

    ‘… let me just fit this toupée properly in place and I’m ready to go.’

    “Are you sure this is the way our ancestors used to procreate? I feel a bit lightheaded.”

    “OK, which one of you bastards has my left kidney?”

    I keep looking for Mike and the ‘Bots in the foreground…

    Damn, I forgot to put away my blow-up doll before I passed out

    More tiny people, this time under the bonnet of a 1962 Ford Anglia to which someone has added a show-offy air-filter. They’re sat around on top of the battery.

  11. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “A forensic examination proved that the three unidentified persons had been electrocuted by the numerous live wires which were scattered around the room. The Chief of Police says that to prevent such accidents, the public must be taught to treat electricity with respect.”

  12. Frank Says:

    The new Skybox at ancient Forbes Field can be dizzying when first entered…

  13. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    Why is the image even sheeped? You can hardly see anything!

  14. Tom Noir Says:

    Yes, that strategically placed elbow is doing most of the heavy lifting here.

  15. Robert Carnegie Says:

    Good heavens, is this really the notorious [They’d Rather Be Right]!

    Unusual to change the title to disguise the fact that you’ve won a Hugo award for this work…

  16. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘Ha ha ha, Groo, I’ve already stolen Prince Philip’s nose!’

    ‘…did I err?’

  17. Bibliomancer Says:

    “I can’t believe you’re cheating on me with the cable guy!”

  18. JuanPaul Says:

    If this guy needs something this elaborate to get in the mood, maybe he should just find a hobby.

  19. B. Chiclitz Says:

    “Sure your future space machine gave me great abs, doc, but it also melted my left foot and my right hand! And she’s still laughing at me like she used to!”

  20. fred Says:

    That cable around his left ankle looks positively ominous for everyone on this cover and probably the whole universe.

  21. Francis Boyle Says:

    The woman appears to have the same face as the man which presumably makes him either Arnold J. Rimmer or Donald J. Trump.

  22. NomadUK Says:

    You deserve everything you get when you hog the Orgasmatron™.

  23. GSS ex-noob Says:

    That woman looks incredibly bored. Probably fed up with the men playing their electronic gadget bondage games, while she’s lounging right there showing off her nice figure.

    @FB: or John Simm’s Master.

    (Because it’s a rule that GSS threads converge upon Doctor Who references.)

  24. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @fred: so that’s why the guy on the right looks alarmed! He’s trying to tell him not to get up until he gets the wire off his ankle – and removes the thicker cable that looks like it’s plugged into his arm…

    Is it just me, or does the Machine look like it has a goofy grasshopper face?

    The original Astounding cover shows the effects of failing to flip the test subject over halfway through the process.

  25. Francis Boyle Says:

    @GSS ex-noob

    How could I have forgotten? Answer: with great effort.

  26. Hammy Says:

    I don’t even know why Space Sheep is there (other than we all miss it and are happy when it appears). Look at her left arm – it clearly shows she is wearing a short-sleeved catsuit.
