And This Was on the Newsstands?

Thinking back to April of 2005, I have to admit, I was rather shocked to see the above magazine on the newsstands. I mean, I'm certainly no prude, but Couldn't they have come up with a better title for their magazine? thought I. It bothered me for some time... until February of 2008, as a matter of fact, when I saw this:

Oops. That's much better.

Silly me.

Umm... Thanks for your time.

Update, July 23, 2915. The first cover was an inadvertent hoax! Read more here!


  1. Heh, heh! I wonder if whoever laid out the first cover got in any trouble for that? Somebody really should have seen that before it went to the printer. Or is it just us because we have dirty minds? Hmmmm...

  2. oh reading you got there SF>...

  3. Hey, people, it's not just me! Do a Google image search under "Parents Magazine" and it'll be one of the first images you'll see!

  4. Maybe that's why the cover model's smiling so much?


  5. That was hysterical. Loved it. I'm off to check out your friends blog (I'm just catching up on reading blogs!).

  6. I wonder how old that kid is now?

  7. And did you see the outdoor ad board that made the national news? It was a thank you board to the "public" schools only the sign painter/designer/whatever left out the "l" and it read "pubic".


I strongly urge you to sign up for follow-up comments, because I (usually) reply to your comment! Comments left for me more than two weeks after a post is published will not appear until I approve them, but they will be answered eventually!
