Our Cover This Week

Posted By on Fri, Mar 9, 2007 at 10:43 AM

OK, so we decide to do a parody of Maxim and those silly magazines, and people go batshit.

I had a call from one of our older readers on my voicemail this morning. She explained she likes the Weekly—although she liked it better 10 years ago—and was dismayed we were going in "this direction" with our cover.

A high school teacher sent me a frothing e-mail explaining that she feels like " a dirty pedophile toting your publication around my school, and that she "feel(s) just wrong holding in my hands a paper advertising 'Teen Sex.'"

I hate to remind her that the teaser she's writing about concerned a review of Romeo and Juliet, which is read in pretty much every high school in America, and that TEEN SEX PLAYS A RATHER MAJOR ROLE IN THE PLAY.

Finally, one restaurant owner flat-out refused to have the paper in his restaurant, because kids come in there.

OK, the cover model is showing no cleavage and very little well, anything.

Some people. Sheesh.
