    I like them waking The Necronomicon. He’s just so happy.

    Anytime you can turn a legitimate, soul shattering horror into a cute form that can be consumed whole in its sugary shell by the naive young’uns, it’s a good day.

    As opposed to the anti-Nancy Pelosi screed aimed at turning young, impressionable kids into Republozombies.

    It seems awful derivative of
    “The Littlest Shoggoth” by the prolific Stan!

    Stan’s version has more pathos and rhymes, so I judge it superior.

    Hey! Azathoth is suppose to be sleeping! If he was awake the universe would end.

      @Trent Hawkins: Which Lovecraft story said Azathoth is asleep and the universe will end if he wakes up? I don’t remember that, and the wikipedia entry on Azathoth doesn’t mention it either…maybe you’re thinking of Mana-Yood-Sushai from Lord Dunsany’s “Pegana” stories, who was dreaming the universe and who was kept asleep by the drumming of the lesser god Skarl? Lord Dunsany was a big influence on Lovecraft and the idea of a lesser god playing music to lull a greater one might have inspired the description in “Haunter of the Dark” of “the ancient legends of Ultimate Chaos, at whose center sprawls the blind idiot god Azathoth, Lord of All Things, encircled by his flopping horde of mindless and amorphous dancers, and lulled by the thin monotonous piping of a demonic flute held in nameless paws.”
