Mule Design Makes With the Funny


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:

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.
