This old scene from Dune seems strangely prescient now!

Don’t you have better things to do with your weekend?

Like opening a safe?


#3

Next up. How to turn an apple into a pot pipe.

Over at MetaFilter, they’ve been using [real] and [fake] tags, because this is Poe’s Election.

Just sayin’


#5

It’s a fake. I just checked the Kindle edition, and part of this is drawn from a fight involving Paul Atreides, but some of it is a new invention.

Where’d you find this fraud?

I would find the meme generator to be the more interesting story.

Hey, you’re not the only one. Also - Bernie Halleck and Biden Idaho, swordmasters of the Obamatreides House, would be pleased to see how St. Hillaria of the Knife slew the Trumpkonnen. :stuck_out_tongue:

Hmm. Harkonnens hair color is… uh… like this:

and

… but I know that Dune is fictional. Still, the odds are… eh… odd.

A conspiracy of gingers?

The real reason Hillary was dressed for the 24th century…

Considering all the unsightly photoshops that have been generated thus far, I am mildly surprised that there is no accompanying, ghastly mashup of Sting and Trump.

Surprised… but pleasantly so.


#11

No, no, no, NO! Begone from my mind, vile image!


#12

I was fine right up until the end. But clearly you can’t kill Trump by stabbing him in the brain. You’d need to damage an organ that’s actually in use.


#13

But it works on zombies!


#14

Much as flamingo feathers are famously naturally colorless but accumulate pink pigment from the shrimp that constitute most of the flamingo’s diet, Trump’s hair benefits from a near-constant intake of Nacho Cheese Doritos.


#15

I understand the intent, but this is just sacrilege.


#16

Oh, @beschizza, you’re too good for the BoingBoing chatterati.


#17

Remember the part when Hillary uses the Clinton family atomics to blow a gap in Trump’s wall and rides all those immigrants into the lobby of the Trump casino? That was awesome.


#18

Dune is the one in which a charismatic character from an aristocratic family leads Muslims on a path that results in their domination of a corrupt empire, isn’t it? There’s even a Wall in it.
It rather supports the Trump narrative.


#19

I would have thought that this election was bad enough already, without needing to invent more of it.

There are limits to even my savagery.
