Overheard at BBW HQ:
"OK guys. That Housing Rebound cover back in February was out of line. We've got to be more careful in the future. This isn't Mad Magazine."
"Um.... what about dick jokes, boss? Can we do a dick joke on the cover?"
"Yeah, I love dick jokes. Lemme see what you got."

BusinessWeek just can't stand that the universe now belongs to the golden gods known as hedge fund managers.  Behold their proud, erect earnings, and despair!

I'm kind of surprised they didn't find some way to mention John Boehner on the cover.
