Disecting women’s magazines

I’m a late arrival to jezebel.com, but I’m enjoying the feature where they take a women’s magazine cover and rewrite the cover blurbs. I thought it was interesting that they picked on Marie Claire, which Brianne and I agree is one of the better mags out there. But if you take the snark with a grain of salt it’s all pretty funny.

My personal favorite is the one that says “a writer lost 3 pounds, it only took a year”. That story got a huge eye roll from me because while I liked the concept (can you just stop fretting about food and actually lose weight?) I can in no way relate to someone who freaks out over 3 pounds. Take that times ten and then we’ll talk.
