"Ah!"

That was the sound that involuntarily popped out of my mouth when I got home this evening and found this on the cover of my April issue of Marie Claire.



I'm not saying Joanna always has to choose Hollywood lookers - you didn't see me complain when Hilary Swank "graced" last month's cover, did you? - but Christ, wasn't there a picture where Ms. Oh had a less "lookie at my big poopie!" expression on her face? Or something in her wardrobe that looked less like the puffy-painted, bejeweled-mirror-adorned line of clothing the woman who runs the strip-mall scrapbook store "My Sentiments Exactly!" sells alongside German Shepherd stickers and star-edged fabric scissors?

If it weren't for the allure of the "My 12-grape diet" article, I very well might have taken Monte up on his suggestion to slap some Jif Extra Crunchy on her face and let him go to town.

And by "go to town," yes, I do mean try to attempt to begin to make her look less hideous.

You. Ruthless. Evil. Okay, that cover is pretty funny. Very deer in the headlights.

martin always makes a bong sound (and i mean always) when he sees sandra oh. because she looks like she got hit in the face with a frying pan (his words not mine).

Whoever allowed that picture to be on the cover is going to get the boot once sales figures come in. In all seriousness, I would not buy that magazine solely because of the cover. It's truly awful. Laughably awful.

But just think, that must have been the best pic they got...
