There was originally a Bandersnatch in the frame, but they couldn’t quite catch it.

ETA he says “borogroves” both times. Wrong, Cabbagepatch, wrong.


#6

i thought that was the jaberwocky.


#7

Was it frumious?

This is great, but Wil Wheaton wasn’t the source. He reblogged it from here: https://grim-aesthetics.tumblr.com/

I am absolutely fumious that they mislabeled this as a Bandersnatch.

Then there’s Sampson the Jabberwock!

Reportedly so, yes. Very frumious.

It’s been a long time since I read Alice and a couple years since I last read the Snark, but for some reason I remember Carroll’s bandersnatch being green. Doesn’t Alice see a flash of something green speedily disappearing over a hill or something? Maybe I’m remembering a derivative work.

For some reason, at this moment I have this strong urge to consume yogurt, raw milk, and bee pollen.

Interesting the way that it seems to be mapped onto a surface, rather than a fully 3d shape.


#15

But why would a simple act of mislabeling render you dirty and oily and redolent of the sea?

#17

That really makes me fruminous.
