Best things about this cover:
- "Get your own pillow, blondie! This one's taken."
- "I know I said I wouldn't kick you out of bed, but ... I'm tired and you're squirmy."
- "I'm the 'power' and you're the 'human weakness,' got it?"
- "Help, I've fallen out of bed onto ... this remarkably plush carpet. Where'd you get this?"
- Love the pseudo-lesbianism of it all: "Are we gay? I don't know ... do you want us to be gay?"
Best things about this back cover:
- That delayed "... of our times" in the Herald-Tribune blurb is making me laugh. "OK boss, here's the tagline I'm thinkin' of: 'A pungent report' ... wait for it ... 'of our times!' Whadya think? Grabby, right? It tells people the story reeks, and then, just when they think it might be about the Middle Ages - BAM, we drop the contemporary relevance factor. They won't know what hit 'em, no sir."
- Love the bottom picture - shortest dance audition ever. "Never gonna give ..." "Goodbye. Next!"
Now, though, the doors were thrown open to the public, and the saloon was loud and packed, sprinkled with shrill-voiced women who stood at the bar, drank their whiskey straight, and were aggressively determined to share a dubious equality with the male patrons.
