WTF! The New Yorker COVER Does it AGAIN!

I cannot believe these people! I canceled my subscription before, but I am now calling the magazine to get a NEW subscription, so that I can cancel it again later today!

No, no. Better yet... I'm going to buy the entire magazine so that I can go into the office of every staff member wearing a Donald Trump style wig and yell, "You're so totally and everlastingly unemployed!"

Don't know what I'm talking about?

WELL, LOOK AT THIS, SPANKY:

I-- I mean what-- what-- WHAT THE FUCK!?

First, they've got three lobsters climbing out of the window in an UTTER PACNIC and what are they descending down?!? Don't tell me that's not a A TERRORIST SCARF, because it most certainly fucking is!

And look at the pot! With the clearly MURDERED crustacean!

You're telling me that's not a blatant, overt, obvious, naked reference to Guantanamo Bay?!?

And note the people on the left of the image... ON THE LEFT, REMEMBER... man standing next to man, woman sitting with woman... if that's not a utter, wholehearted, fully-planned shot-across-the-board against GAY DEMOCRATS well then my name isn't Howard Wolfson O'Reilly Brokaw!

And the RED WINE! RED! WITH LOBSTER?!?

Communist, gay, lobster hating, Democratic, torturers!

I mean... CHRIST... is that woman... ANY WOMAN... in that drawing even wearing a bra?!?!

Don't think that's bad? Well, count the railings on the bannister! ELEVEN! ELEVEN RAILINGS!

I'm not sure WHAT THE FUCK THAT MEANS, but I'm sure that its DISPARAGING and SO NOT GOOD!

Why don't they just hand the election to John McCain and get it over with!*

Re: WTF! The New Yorker COVER Does it AGAIN!

Why do Lobsters hate America?

WHAT ABOUT THE CHILDREN, THE RULE OF LAW!

Let's eat the lobsters over here, so we don't have to eat them over there...

Re: WTF! The New Yorker COVER Does it AGAIN!

I am surprised the lobsters are still alive and capable of their triumpant escape.  Usually when they're red they're already dead....Remarkable!  Damned elitists!

A MyDD commenter once pointed out to me the significance:

The numbers all go to 11. Look, right across the board, 11, 11, 11, and ... Well, it's one louder, isn't it? It's not ten.

-Nigel Tufnel from "This Is Spinal Tap"

You're damn right it's disparaging.  It's sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll. They're painting all Democrats as stoned rockers.  Casual-dining, elitist, stoned terrorist rockers.

That Lobster on the Ground...

...looks like McCain.

I think the others might be Rove and Cheney trying to avoid a grand jury.

Re: WTF! The New Yorker COVER Does it AGAIN!

11 because one of the apostles already sold out America to the Moslems! and that "apostle" is the fake Christian Barach Hussein Obama!

And the laughing liberals are letting the shellfish escape!  Who says we shouldn't eat shellfish?  Jews and Moslems!  Semites.  We are letting the Semites rule us while we drunkenly laugh our lives away.  Ha Ha Ha, liberals who can afford to summer in the Hamptons or on the Cape or in Ogunquit with all their gay friends!  Keep laughin' while the Jews continue to run the media and destroy our nation from within and the Moslems prepare to destroy our nation the old-fashioned way--with BOMBS that will make a pot of boiling water look inviting, and with an insidious invitation to hate to black Americans and others who think that America has mistreated them.

Re: WTF! The New Yorker COVER Does it AGAIN!

Uh, this cover is obviously SATIRE.

I guess you're too unsophisticated to get the joke.

It's not making fun of red wine-drinking, lobster-eating, gay marriage-loving, terrorist-supporting Democrats.

No, it's making fun of people who stubbornly BELIEVE that Democrats drink reds with shellfish and have moonlit conversations on the porch with their same sex partners about how they secretly want the terrorists to win.

How do you not see that?
