Rolling Stone Illustrated?

Inside the morning editorial meeting at Sports Illustrated Magazine:

"Hey guys, our swimsuit issue already has nothing to do with sports... so lets make it a music issue also!!!!!"


The end result: Beyonce on the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue

Well, uh, she played soccer as a kid...

Inside are Kanye West, Aerosmith, Kenny Chesney, Gnarls Barkley and Panic! At the Disco, all posing with the only thing we really care about, the swimsuit models.

I like Beyonce, but... um... this swimsuit issue has even LESS to do with sports than usual.

Yeah I know. SI will argue that "music is inextricably tied to sports, in halftime shows, pregame warmups....etc etc... blah blah." The truth is, SI wants to sell more magazines, and it'll put Barak Obama, Brangelina or Anna Nicole Smith on the cover if that means more people will buy it.

Come on, SI. At least pretend the swimsuit issue has something to do with sports. That way we don't look like perverts buying it.
