Rangoon Rifflets: That Rotten Tea Bag

Your guess is as good as ours, folks.

Sauron is pretty eloquent for a guy transforming into a pterosaur man. And yes, he totally named himself after that other Sauron.
(X-Men #60, written by Roy Thomas, art by Neal Adams and Tom Palmer)

Just a reminder, but the reason the X-Men have a “life-force-draining-pterosaur-man-with-hypnotism” villain is because comics couldn’t use vampires at the time… so Thomas and Adams devised the next best thing, which turns out to be pants-on-head craziness. Plus there’s an explicit, in-story Lord of the Rings reference because why not.
You can read the background on Sauron being intended as a pseudo-vampire here.

Ian Ziering was paid for this bad film he made
Where sharks fall from the sky-y
Chris Pratt plays a man who forms a rogue band
Half of whom are CGI-I
Now The Doctor’s reborn and his face is well-worn
By a man who swears like a sailor
Join Starchibald and Jim as they sit back and take in
This trio of sci-fi trailers

Man, old scanner did a nuuuuumber on this one. Had to do a lot of cleaning, and it’s still not great. Regardless, a very powerful image. Don’t remember what it was scanned from.

Are you looking to be a more informed purchaser of meat? Well, if you can retain consciousness for the duration of the government-sponsored short, you might pick up a tip or two. Might. No promises.

Prepare for awkward pauses and blown lines NOT coming from Starch and Sunny Jim in “The Quality of the Meat You Buy”!

The NES version of this game was a favorite, although in practice I wasn’t very good at it.
