    Rob Brydon’s new road-trip documentary takes an unexpected turn.

  4. FearöfMusic Says:

    Lizard man.. not men. So, uh, I guess Guss’ little brother decided to tag along? Those tongues, they’re just creeping me out. And those lizard men look sort of salamandery. Oh, and when George Jetson finds out they stole his car, he’s gonna be so mad!

  5. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Sorry, no. You may use the word ‘inimitable’ only if you’re P. G. Wodehouse, or you’re a Conservative commentator of above-average intelligence.

  6. fred Says:

    I am assuming the Essa version would read ‘An exciting new adventure of Guss and Harry Borg, the roguish ape man from Brooklyn!’

  7. Tom Noir Says:

    I swore off reading about hairy borg since that last erotic star trek fanfic turned my stomach.

  8. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    @FoM: Perhaps those fellows were modeled after the humanoid dinosaur at the Smithsonian in Washington?

  9. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    Wait a mo.

    All toxicoferans use their tongues for smelling.

    Did someone in the back seat tell a monkey joke using pheromones, and the fellows up front are laughing while David tries to play along?

    One of the perils of hitchhiking is when your ride won’t let you out of the car.

  11. M. Says:

    Who knew that the lizard people shopped at L.L. Bean?

  12. Tom Noir Says:

    Well their seasonal collection is very tasteful.

  13. A.R.Yngve Says:

    “Typical… I take the lizards out for a drive, and they always let their tongues hang out. You guys remind me of Marmaduke, you know that?”

  14. anon Says:

    That human’s a hand puppet.

  15. Dead Stuff With Big Teeth Says:

    ‘We’re Guss and Harry…’

    ‘We’re Harry and Guss!’

    ‘And worst of all, our clothing doesn’t really fit us!’

  16. B. Chiclitz Says:

    The guy in the back somehow projects a sullen look. That’s what you get for not claiming “shotgun” fast enough, I guess. And how many antennae does he have coming out of his headthing there?

  17. GSS ex-noob Says:

    Inimitable? The alien in the other seat seems to be doing a pretty good imitation.

    There’s something wrong with Harry’s head — either the size or how it’s attached.

    Good rendition of the Capitol and that oddly-shaped Senate office building, though.

    @BC: Of course he’s sullen. Having to sit in the back seat and wear a giant helmet he maybe can’t see out of. Takes all the fun out of joyriding over a major city.

  18. Bruce A Munro Says:

    (Reads #9)

    “Ick! It is true what they say – you mammals are silent, but deadly!”
    “I swear it was the guy in the back seat, dudes.”

  19. Francis Boyle Says:

    I think Harry’s being played by the Hoff’s head cutout from South Park. Or maybe he had an unfortunate encounter with the 2D universe from Doctor Who. Either way there definitely aren’t three full size bodies on that front seat.

  20. fred Says:

    “For the fiftieth time I’m Harry Borg, not this Azor Ahai fellow!”

  21. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @GSSxn—Well, as I think about what has happened in Washington since my last post, I now realize that the little lizard in the back was being foresightful in donning that tinfoil helmet as protection against the Deep State Gamma Ray Insanity Beams emanating from a certain address along Pennsylvania Avenue.

  22. Bibliomancer Says:

    “So you guys say you do probes? What are you, detectives or something?”

  23. Tat Wood Says:

    After their complaints to the network about his constant misrepresentations of them, the aliens took matters into their own hands and abducted Rod Serling.

  24. JuanPaul Says:

    Is this the Essan remake of ‘Dumb and Dumber’?

  25. B. Chiclitz Says:

    @Tat W—GSS!

  26. Tor Mented Says:

    “See all the lovely monuments and harmonious landscaping? What a pleasant little town this must be.”

  27. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS Ex-noob: perhaps the lizard in back is playing one of those virtual reality games all the cool kids are into nowadays.

  28. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @BC, Bruce: perhaps a combo of your most recent answers?

  29. anon Says:

    A novel by Draw His Wank
    Frid Imai and Ruiz gang install a new sound system on the hover raft, grab mexican beer.

  30. Raoul Says:

    “Would you mind cracking the window? It’s starting to smell like a pet shop in here.”

  31. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @anon does it again. They’re listening to the tunes, now with more bass, and flying to a liquor store for some Corona or Dos Equis.

    I’ve just now wondered what a Sword of Fire has to do with 3 lizard aliens and a dude all in casual wear, flying over Washington DC in a tiny spaceship. ???

  32. Bruce A Munro Says:

    @GSS: well, the terrestrial paradise is supposed to be guarded by an angel with a fiery sword, so perhaps they’re on their way to paradise, with a stopover for drinks in DC?

  33. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    I really want it to be a mistake by the printers. The title of a fantasy epic accidentally paired with a sci fi illustration. The contents could be from either, but with one or two pages printed upside down and the climactic last chapter replaced with information on 1985 council waste management regulations in Milton Keynes.
