Just a bit of fun to start the morning off right. From Mule Design‘s blog, they’ve got “Let’s Make Fun of Things,” which places two magazine covers together, stating that one is real while the other is fake. Then it clearly points out the one that’s real and how upsetting that is. Here’s some:

…a hint about magazine design: I’m sure that the Robert Scoble story about how a pudgy white male (full disclosure: I am a pudgy white male) made good even as all the odds were stacked against him is incredibly uplifting, but try not to bury your subjects at the bottom of the page. Especially when they’re looking a little creepy and holding cameras. See how the guy on the right is in a nice inspirational pose? He looks hot, right? People buy magazines because they’re aspirational.
