It’s a good send up on the formulaic covers that work so well for magazines like Cosmopolitan.
It’s also a good reminder that we don’t want to become so stuck on rules that we become a parody of oursleves. After all, we still want to delight and surprise our readers.
On the other hand, it’s easy to mock success, much harder to generate the newsstand sales that Cosmopolitan typically turns in. Cosmo’s ABC statements from 2011 show that they sold over 18 million single copies, with newsstand sales making up 50% of their total ratebase. I think they are laughing all the way to the bank.
