Novel Magazine Cover

This will probably go down as the most, uh, unusual publication cover to appear on news stands lately.

 Yep, your eyes are not deceiving you. That’s the late John Ritter as a centaur. And that’s bikini babe Betty White riding John as she wields a flaming chain saw.

Well, Betty looks like she’s having fun, anyway. Not so sure about John, but if I were him, I’d be scared, too.

 The Portland Mercury is an arts, humor and news publication based in Portland, Oregon.

The cover is the result of an on line poll of what people wanted to see on the Mercury’s cover.

I’d love to know how the fine people of Portland came up with that. Heck, it was a good idea if you’re in the media business. If you want to get noticed, sometimes the truly bizarre will help you do that.
