The Thirst Avenger - ah, can you see what they did there? Am I the only one who thinks Cap would balk at being associated with a bottle opener? I see that, I think beer and I don't think Cap's big on beer.
While I'm not getting any of the Before Watchmen titles, I have to admit that the cover to Dr Manhattan #2 is gorgeous.
All hail the Hypnotoad! You will buy this vinyl figure! Buy it now and worship the Hypnotoad!
I'm thinking I might treat myself and actually buy this.
Oh dear lord, they've finally released it. And that pattern on the toast - a very poor photoshop effect.
And the strap line: "Hurm.... your toast." That doesn't make any sense. Are they asking us to "Hurm" our toast? When did "Hurm" become a verb? Have you hurmed your toast this morning?
Should it be "Hurm.... you're toast."? Or are they going for a Homer Simpsonesque sound of pleasure and anticipation? If so, surely "Hurm.... toast" would suffice?
Am I thinking too much about this?
Damn it. Now I want some toast.
