Every time I read "Bobo" I think of that unknown character that called Elaine's shrink on the phone in Seinfeld :)

ELAINE: I am sorry but there's somebody else.

DR. RESTON : Huh, huh.

ELAINE: Well it's nothing I planned on happening, you know. It just kind of happened.

DR. RESTON :You mean sexually?

ELAINE: Yeah. Sexu-ally.

(phone rings)

ELAINE: Uh...are you going to...

DR. RESTON: Excuse me. (answers) Yes? Oh yes, Bobo. No it's just east of Madison. Around 4:00 will be fine. All right Bobo. (hangs up) . . .I'm sorry, where were we?


So randomly silly. Make me laugh every time :)

Admittedly it would be oh-so-nice if the publishers quietly pulled the plug on #4 - "honestly Kev, the kids today only go for trilogies - I can't even pronounce tetrolurgy-whatisit?" - but the sad answer is more likely that the site admins are too fucking stupid to update it.

Maybe they're trying to go for a Hitchhiker's-trilogy. Don't panic.

"Heroes" was originally to be just a trilogy. PoD was part of the Grunters and Sadworms contract, so when they went to sign for Jessica's Wind and Thunder Throne, someone realized it wasn't a trilogy (GASP! :shock: ) and so they added Leto, 'Tard of Dune to round it out.

Thus giving us their first McDune tetralogy.

And DO panic, 'cause they ain't finished shitting in Frank Herbert's Dune sandbox yet.... :twisted:

I'm throwing in the towel. Really, these guys are encroaching on real work. What's the source of all their success?

A consumer base with a major inferiority complex that are also largely ignorant of anything else of superior quality. What's worse, these consumers are in EVERY industry. There are more of them than you'd think. Scary thought, I know :)

Ding-ding-ding! We have a winner!

SR called it. Take a look at any crap-Dune book. What's the largest word on the cover? Hint: it's not "Bobo Herbert."

I'll be interested to see what the cover for the first Hell-whatever book looks like. Anyone want to bet me that "by the authors of 10 Dune books!!!" appears prominently? No? :)

That wouldn't surprise me unfortunately.

Look at their eye pupils, perhaps there is some truth in those Lizards Conspiracy Theory videos on Youtube!
Only the books written by Frank Herbert are canon.

Well, those lizards are meant to survive on the blood of humans, right? He's certainly sustained himself off FH's blood, sweat and tears, and he's probably been leaching Brian for a while now. I think the theory has merit.

You got it all wrong! Those hiking sessions are an In-Universe account written by Irulan...
