But, you know: bills do need to get paid.

In what universe is this sexy? …For the love of God, do not answer that. I’m appalled enough at the implied rutting in the rotini as it is.
For the love of pasta!

Because I don’t trust pigs worth a damn, that’s why.
9) Pigs are smart enough to push other animals into the electric fence, and if they don’t get shocked the pigs will leave.

There may or may not be an alternate universe where that cover is indeed an accurate reflection of William Goldman’s The Princess Bride, but it sure as Hell isn’t this one.

Although I will be fair about this; this is clearly a printing from before the movie came out and locked itself in as an essential part of modern American fantasy. No publisher would have tried to get away with a cover like that afterwards. I mean, the very thought of doing so would have been, oh, what’s the word?…
…so this contest is actually rather quite handy. On the other hand: the more people that join up, the harder my chances of winning a copy. On the gripping hand: if one of my regulars wins a copy because I pointed this out… well, that’ll be cool, too.

Specifically: the project is to imagine what people who expect you to make them art for free must look like. Not the people who you give art to for free, or the people who accept the art that you gave them for free: the people who feel entitled to free art. Yeah. Those people.

I should note, though: the guy who offered to pay in beer probably should not be included in this Rogues’ Gallery of Shame. Beer has established monetary value. I’ve known more than one artist who did not object to the idea of trading some quick art for a six-pack of booze.
You want to calibrate exactly when you go to eavesdrop on this drunken conversation between Arthur C Clarke, CS Lewis, and JRR Tolkien. You don’t want to get there too early. Two drinks is too soon; five drinks is too many. You want to arrive somewhere between three and four ales apiece: that’s probably the peak point for Awesome Drunken Conversations.
…What? Recording awesome stuff on the sly is the only really ethical use of time travel that I can think of. I mean, you don’t want to actually change anything, right? …RIGHT?
