Best things about this cover:
  • When yoga class gets a little too "authentic"...
  • Sally and Jenny hovered uncomfortably between ab-hunger and diaper-revulsion
  • Wait, those aren't abs. They aren't in the right place ... what are those??!?!
  • "And that, ladies, is how you throw a slider"
  • OK, I'll just say what we're all thinking: where's the fucking apostrophe?
Best things about this back cover:

Back page designer: "I have this idea for a kind of harem motif, where a seraglio doorway provides..."

Publisher: "Sorry, Bill, we're going with a bathroom tile. Thanks for these storyboards, tho."

Page 123~
That evennig he mailed them out to Paris to his contact.
Needless to say, [sic]

Nappy Man has weirdly feminine hips and thighs. Just thought I'd mention it...
