Your Local News Rack

Your Local News Rack

For some strange reason I still pick up a magazine when I'm at the store. Be it Los Angeles Magazine or Men's Health or sometimes even Maxim. I still find myself going back to those paper and pages of ads from time to time.

It's a hard habit to break even if everything you could possibly ever want to know about anything is blogged or updated online at a much faster rate. In the case of Maxim, I guess you can lump in shit like the Sports Illustrated Swim Suit issue. I mean, who really cares about that one anyway when there's tons of porn on the internet?

Though I guess that's a topic for another day. I just want to get to the point that sometimes magazine covers are a little bit tasteless for the sake of displaying on a check out rack. So they have to cover them up with a family friendly plastic padding.

The following covered up magazine really made me raise an eyebrow.

Oh, I see how it is.

One man and a baby - okay to show
Two men and a baby - block to protect families.
Three men and a baby - box office gold

And yes, this was an incident at one store and the manager got complaints about it and he covered it, I have to wonder about the morons who were actually complaining about this one. It's a good thing that corporate got complaints about the cover and they reviewed it/removed it.

It just really makes you wonder what is actually family friendly?

I do have to wonder though, why isn't Black Rifles not in the porno magazine section? I mean, let's be real here.. that just sounds like a dirty magazine.

More reason to say it... God damn, America!
