Funny or Stupid? You Decide

I’m assuming that this insane story about advertisements stuck on the front covers of magazines is a parody of people saying that print media has sold out or that it’s on its last legs or something.

Because I can’t believe Tim Rogers has never seen this before. I’ve been complaining about fake covers for years.

    They’ve added an addendum to the piece:

    “Tim has been living in Japan for a few years, and thus is perhaps not aware that this has been going on over here for quite a while.”

    I just figured he had been living under a rock.

    Tim’s not always the most informed of dudes IMO.

    These things have been around for years, so I’m not sure I understand why there’s so much fuss about it. Well, okay, so it’s Tim Rogers, which explains the fuss. I half expect him to start spewing outrage over interstitial ads on gaming websites.
