Cover Battle: The New York Times Magazine or Mental Floss

Welcome back to another edition of FishbowlNY’s weekly Cover Battle. This time around we have The New York Times Magazine versus Mental Floss. The Times Magazine went with an adorable photo of a dog licking a chubby baby. It’ll be tough to beat this cover, because who doesn’t like dogs and babies? If you answered “me,” please know you’re a bad person.

Mental Floss went with a great illustration for its cover. It’s old-timey without being annoying, which is hard to pull off. Just ask anyone living in Williamsburg.

So readers, which cover is better? You can vote, comment, or do both.
