"It Was THIS Big!"

A recent thread over at the Original Dungeon & Dragons Discussion forum has had me reexamining my copy of Eldritch Wizardry. While perusing those pages, I rediscovered the following image:
I’m not sure why, but there’s something about the above picture that keeps making me think that it requires some sort of humorous, snarky, weird, or witty caption to accompany it*. And for the life of me, I just can’t come up with the right one.

*My apologies to the artist for openly mocking his/her work but this piece hits me in the goofy bone.

"...and thy sacrificial vestments, soaked as they are in the blood of the infidel, shall dry much faster if thou flap thy arms thus."

You guys have got some good ones. The only thing that sprang to my mind was:

"Great! We fight our way through ten levels of dungeon and this is our final reward? The Hug of Vecna?! Your campaign sucks, Rick!"

Christopher B said...

"The Hug of Vecna?!"

LOL! :D

The votes may still be out, but it's Amityville Mike FTW, I'd say.

"You know what they say about a man with big hands." Seriously, his palms are bigger than the entire size of his head.

I'm still laughing about Gene the Dancing Machine, please make it stop...
