Average Women's Magazine Cover Spoofs Cosmo, is Hilariously Accurate

by at .  Updated at . Comments

A hilarious parody of Cosmopolitan and other women's magazines, entitled "Average Women's Magazine Cover," is making the online rounds, and for good reason.

Created in 2010 by writer and illustrator Brendan McGinley, it resurfaced this week on Twitter, and if you've ever seen a real Cosmo cover, you'll appreciate it.

Right down to the font, the spoof nails the publication's layout and its obsession with splashing SEX on the cover as many times as humanly possible.

The only difference? The fine print on this one is much more honest:

Average Women's Magazine Cover

Features all-caps, bold headlines like "Overanalyzing" and "The Shame & Guilt Issue," McGinley takes a funny, not subtle swipe at actual publications.

NAKED. It may not apply at all, but they're required to use that word.

Turning to Cosmopolitan for advice on sex, relationships, body image and women's health (mental and physical)? A dubious proposition at best.

From its awesome Christina Hendricks subheading to teasers like "Lose 30 lbs Fast, Chop Off Your Leg!", it'll make you think twice about such magazines.

This is how they prepare the girls for it: Gay Stylist (Alex): Sweetie, make sure that you don't move the part that shows off those lovely little puppies! And make sure they don't get hungry! Oh, looks like I have to go get someone ready. I'll be back in a couple seconds! Bossy Girl Stylist (Eleanor):I want those little things to pop out like Pepsi! Oh, gosh, it isn't fitted good. Obviously Angela isn't good enough at this. Daniel, tell Angela to get her butt and the hands she fits these clothes in here! We need to have an important discussion! Camera Man (Daniel): I'm on it, Eleanor! Celebrity Girl: Oh, is this pose nice? Eleanor: You look rediculous! They always do such sloppy poses! You can be a slut but not a poor slut, a rich slut! Come on, not to the side. The boobs won't show. Just an unsexy sideboob. Okay, now hands there. Make a sexy face! Okay, okay, we got it! Just wait! Daniel: I got Angela here. Angela: What is wrong? I may have made a few mistakes but I didn't keep her thingies in! Eleanor: Thingies? These aren't thingies! They are worth more than the thingies you have. Angela: Eleanor, you need to stop being a selfish bitch. Eleanor: Selfish? I'm helping her out with a dress you couldn't possibly fit right! Gosh, you're like my third ex husband. You can't correctly finish the simplest tasks. Angela: I can't believe you! Celebrity Girl, can you believe her? Celebrity Girl: Me? I'm used to this. Considering how long I think you've been here, you should. And then they take the photos, caption it with stuff they don't actually put in the magazine but put on the cover to get people's attention. There ya go. You sure you seriously want to be on Cosmopolitan?
