1 April 2010

Front and centre: Now, this is more like it. Marvel at the rudimentary Photoshop job! Is that Eugene Levy? No! It's Art Gallery of Ontario CEO Matthew Teitelbaumn, and the Sun is incredulous that the CEO of an art gallery has made $1 million, a mind-boggling amount of money that no one in history--aside from King Tutankhamun himself--has ever managed to get paid. The salary exposé comes in the wake of layoffs at the AGO, semingly putting the Sun on the side of the AGO's unionized workers. In short, the Sun has become a communist publication.

To the left: A memorial for a murdered teen. Above, a reminder to get $20,000,000.

Bottom: I'm worried about the couple in this ad. The man seems jaunty and relaxed, oblivious to the private hell his sweetheart is going through. Just look at the expression on her face. It's a face that's falling out of love, and no amount of free lenses will make her stay....

Summary: Today's cover is a pleasure to look at. Unfortunately, the spectre of communism is haunting Toronto and the Hakim Optical couple are sleeping in separate beds.

  1. This was almost as good as the time they photoshopped OBL's face into the smoke pluming from the WTC on sep 11, 2002.
