WOW...just...WOW! Don't see it? Look what D-Lee's head is covering up.
It's no secret that I, along with millions of others in the Cublogoverse, hate Al Yellon's fucking guts, so this is pretty funny, being that Al is the Editor this fine trash. Personally, I don't how you actually get this past the editors. Too busy with their heads up their asses?
I am a graphic designer by trade and have done a couple of book and magazine covers. The whole "cover up the title with the picture" thing is not new and sometimes has hilarious consequences, but this is one of the best in my personal experiences. Let me tell you though, I'm pretty sure the designer of this cover did this on purpose, just to see if he (or she, there are some lady designers) could get it all the way to the printing, which it apparently did. Probably a Sox fan.
Also hilarious are some of the comments on the BCB site in reference to the slip, and one thing I in particular noticed about the quote that Al puts under each of his own comments: "You can observe a lot just by watching." ~ Yogi Berra.
You can observe a lot, Al. Like a dork like yourself being so wrapped up in your little Cubs world, you fail to notice the obvious.
Some other comments poke fun at the cover:
• Maybe I'll probe through it.
• That is some crack reporting.
• This issue probes deeply and can sometimes be a bit rough, but it comes through in the end.
• Will it be delivered to my back door? (by a woman, no less)
• Is this issue #2?
I'm sure this cover will make it's way to Deadspin and Fail blog eventually. Thanks, Al, for once again making us Cubs fans look like Idiots.
