Obviously someone is not thinking of the children. This sort of thing can lead to all kinds of uncomfortable questions.
"Mommy, Mommy is it true layout designers are just rodeo clowns who were kicked in the head too often?"
How are you going to answer that? I mean besides 'yes'.

FTFA: Anyone else feel sorry for the lovely lass on the cover?

Uh, do you mean the old lady they tried dolling up to look like a lovely lass? She doesn't look like she's a day over 70 in that photo. Perhaps the condensed nature of the photo isn't allowing me to see her properly, but that certainly doesn't look like a 'lass.'

Somebody please tell me that's satire.

The articles inside it, I mean, not the "Penis" thing.

If that's true it's scarier than "Delusional Bride".

The US has no functional public education system to each people how to find established methodology for dealing with unfamiliar subjects (like parenting) so the mass media and commerce set up to fill the void.

This explains everything wrong with the US.

Because I said so.

Bathia_Mapes: How was this not spotted before being printed?


I lived in the OC for years and worked in the publishing industry and I've never heard of this publication so I'm gonna guess it's a very small operation that outsources its layout. Looking at the masthead, building, owners, etc., it paints the picture of one of those magazines in the free rack that tourists grab to find a restaurant or night club. Probably get placed in hotel rooms. Not surprising that it happened. There are probably only 2 or 3 sets of eyeballs that even glance at each issue before it's printed and, since they know the title, their brain fills in "Where" automatically.
 
2012-09-05 07:25:56 AM  
I was staying in a Boston hotel in March, 2011 and the local edition of "Where" magazine had the same issue. I LOL'd. I suspect that anything that gets the magazine picked up and flipped through is considered to be fair game.

Yeah...I saw the same thing on a magazine cover in my Atlanta hotel room last month. I took a photo, thinking it was something special. Must be a regular occurrence.

This has been a pet peeve of mine for years: blocking out one's own logo with a picture. The bigger and more trendy, the more they seem to do it. I saw a Rolling Stone cover once that I could not tell what magazine it was if not for the name on the rack. Just stop it. It's retarded.

[latimesblogs.latimes.com image 535x373]


I'm offended by their exclusionary policy of that show. OC is very diverse in reality. For example, the local Asian markets are full of unattractive old white guys with hot young Southeast Asian/Pacific Islander mail-order brides with sky-high clear heels and cutoff jean shorts, shopping for fish and coconut milk. Why not put one of them on the show?

I remember it was a game our graphic design instuctor encouraged us to play and keep any eye out for things like this. Basically he was saying (in a round about way) you have to have a sick sense of humor to catch things like this before approving and printing. All throughout semesters he was my instuctor we always got a few extra poinst if we could stump the class and more if we could stump him with clips we found. Although any publicity to get your name out there is good publicity.

As I am a woman, I'm only interested if they're virgins, as I could then drink their blood to stay young myself.

No, they look like the typical articles you'd see in a parenting magazine.

That's EXACTLY what it is. I've seen it in the hotel lobby and gym when I stayed there, saw it on racks, etc. Same for the San Diego version, though LA has more than enough free rags that I've actually never seen it there. Oddly enough, some of the content is fairly interesting; good reviews of restaurants and local services, oriented toward tourists who want to go beyond tourist traps, although heavily skewed toward big advertisers and high-priced yuppie stuff. They probably don't review anyone who doesn't advertise. It's about 40-50 pages, so fairly hefty for a free mag.

Of course we don't. You couldn't possibly have the government do things like help ensure the normal physical and social development of its most helpless citizens. That's un-anti-dis-'Merican. Only someone biologically related to a child can possibly know the best way to raise it, and that guardian will find the child-specific best-practice from their incredibly vast experience of one, self-observed childhood, and maybe a couple of self-selected peers. Any attempt to "educate" people in this regard is nothing more than family-breaking, nanny-state, big-government, socialism.
