Best things about this cover:
  • "Facts of Life: After Dark"
  • Ladies, if you want to frame your ample bosom in a truly classy manner, Maltese fur is the only way to go.
  • Why are those girls so happy-looking? Do they think the good Dr. is going to be good at pleasing them because he ... knows ... stuff? Or are they just looking forward to talking dirty?

Best things about this back cover:
  • "Aaaaah! Oh, jesus, you scared me, lady. Maybe back up and comb your hair and put your mouth hole back near the center of your face."
  • Why do they have poor Mr. Preston down there in that tiny cramped rectangle. He looks like a peeping tom at Barbie's Dream House.

Since the titles are too small to read, I'll tell you that the first book he pulls of the shelf if "Tom Sawyer," the second is "Treasure Island," and the third is "Kinsey." I actually like this cartoon a lot. Little kids have priorities.

This is very funny: "He looks like a peeping tom at Barbie's Dream House."
