Can I enjoy this with the delightful clink of ice, while I sip my evening scotch?

To be seen with your morning coffee.

Seriously, I do love the Tiber Monster. The art looks like 1E D&D's Otis!

It took years, but someone finally did an illustrated academic research study of goatse.

I sincerely hope they found what they were looking for.

The first link, not so much, especially with morning coffee. But dang if the comet and the golden balls in the second link aren't just nifty.

Really, it would be easier if Taschen just sent me every book they put out and I’ll send back the ones I don’t want.
