Magazine Mashups

With the high cost of everything these days one has to come up with unique and creative ways to cut costs of operations in business.

With the “green” movement on, it has come to my attention that we produce far too many magazines. That’s a ton of paper, ink, and waste. It’s time to consolidate.

Here are my suggestions for some new magazine consolidations:

Rolling Stones and Better Homes and Gardens

Gourmet Magazine and Horse and Hound

Ebony Magazine and Kayaker Magazine

Modern Wedding and Playboy

too distracted by the picture of the day on the sidebar. holy moses on a pogo stick! my back hurts just looking at that.

Memarie Lane said...

Shouldn't there be women in bikinis draped over the winnebagos?

I don't understand the Heff with all his identical girlfriends. If you were going to have a bunch of girlfriends, wouldn't you want some variety?

VE said...

lime - Yeah, can you say double-jointed?

marie - They're all inside busy! Heff has his weekly themes just like blogdome. Tuesdays are his big bosom blonde bimbo (b4) day!

I think we should combine Dog Fancy and People...and make Dog People, which would feature what our favorite celebrities would be...if they were dogs. I like to think that Matthew McConaughey would make a nice curly coated retriever.

RED MOJO said...

How about Martha Stewart Living & Sports Illustrated: Sports Martha Style Martha could demonstrate how to design and sew your own team uniforms and color coordinate those tacky sports arenas. The players could include their favorite recipes from their Mama's kitchens.

leelee said...

super super super..

I love those!! lol w/colbymarshall

HUGS!

VE said...

colby - Good addition! I'm sure you wouldn't mind owning Mathew either, now would you?

red mojo - Where you been girl? That's a great addition! The baseball teams could all make craft steriod needle injectors!

VE said...

leelee - Those that read here are really getting creative. I only have to put out a template idea and they pretty much come up with all the funny ideas!

Quickroute said...

I like these but I too think picture of the day was worth a blog post all of its own!

VE said...

quickroute - Yeah, it hurts even looking at it. I'm gonna have to swap it out soon.

Kurt said...

Rolling Homes and Gardens!

Theresa said...

Motorhome with Gormet magazine ....... Don't let fresh roadkill go to waste.

Serena Joy said...

I kind of like Rolling Homes & Gardens. And I love Red Mojo's idea. I wouldn't mind seeing someone put together a Mad Vogue. That could get kind of surreal.:)

Dee said...

you are too funny!

Jacki said...

No matter how desperate I got, I would never be one of Heff's girls. Yeah, you have access to the life of luxury, but still. I feel too smart for that.

VE said...

kurt - They're on the cutting edge of shrubbery...

theresa - Good one. That would consolidate the list even more.

sj - I almost did a Mad and Wired; calling it Mired...but I got lazy.

dee - That's what my kids say too; oh wait...they say 'funny looking'

jacki - You're too smart for that because:
1. You could log on to a computer
2. You can type and spell
3. You knew what a blog was
4. You stopped to think about that decision in the first place.

Those girls...they can't do any of that!

cathouse teri said...

I love the Rolling Homes and Gardens. Brilliant!

VE said...

Teri - That's the core one of this post. I was in the magazine section and noticed both sitting right next to each other. Wallah!

EmmaK said...

Or what about a mag called Bulimics on Ice (Bulimics Times and Ice Cream and Cake Quarterly mashed together)....it could cover both sides of consumption...after all, what goes in must come out.

sprinkle4 said...

Playbirl-For the Hermaphrodite in YOUR Life

LMAO @ Ebony Kayaker....Oprah and the rapids that's just too funny for words.....

Dale said...

Mmm, Gourmet Horse & Hound, where have you been all my life?

You might like my pal Write Procrastinator's site "The Bad Lieutenant's Wife" where movie titles get mashed up to brilliant effect and you can contribute your own.

A couple of examples: When Harry Met The Usual Suspects; Paris, Texas Chainsaw Massacre

VE said...

emmak - You're kidding me right, there's actually a Bulimics Times out there? Is it made out of regurgitated paper? Good suggestion...what goes in should go out...it's a law.

sprinkle4 - Playbirl...ha ha. Now that's covering it all isn't it?

dale - I checked that out. It looks like fun but where do you submit? There hasn't been a post for several weeks now and that one wasn't for movie titles...

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

I like Gourmet Horse and Hound, myself.

C said...

HAHAHA! VE those are awesome!!
I agree with Lime. That photo on your sidebar actually freaks me out. LOL! ;)

VE said...

suburban - And here I thought all the horsey lovers were going to start picketing my blog...

c - Don't worry; I'll be swapping that photo out shortly

The Offended Blogger said...

Hehehe, you are so very creative! I especially liked the Gourmet Magazine and Horse and Hound, as I am fond of my horses and dogs, but accutely aware that if hard times hit, they can sustain me for a very long time. :)

Alex L said...

I'd buy that bottom magazine, you know to plan my wedding and all that stuff, articles, information... tits, all the good stuff. But then I'd have to find a wife...

Matt-Man said...

Ha. Fucking Brilliant!!! And that's all I got to say about that. Cheers!!

MJ said...

LOL. Nice. I work for a printer, and I have seen worse ideas for magazines ACTUALLY printed. Which is funny... but kind of sad.

Sue said...

LMAO- Ebony Kayaker. "We need more presses! They're flying off the shelves!"

My family got me Photoshop for my birthday today. I fear that it will take over my life.

Anne said...

I think I'd subscribe to Rolling Homes.

G said...

I'm sold - where do I subscribe to Rolling Homes and Gardens?! It seems you have a good subscription base right in your comment section here.

PS: Anybody who tosses off an arcane Koyaanisqatsi reference in their profile is okay in my book.

VE said...

offended - Ha! Yeah, you know you are in trouble when you've gone from a pet name to a menu name...

alex - I'm sure you'd just read it for the excellent articles...

matt-man - And that's all you need to say matt-man! Cheers to you too!

mj - I know; it is sad. It's all but impossible to write trashy magazine headline parody because that's what THEY all do

sue - Photoshop...you have no idea! Ha ha ha. I'm so bad...I actually found a Rolling Stones font for that first mag.

anne - With gas prices the way they are, the only rolling most homes will be able to do is if they're on top of a hill...

g - Congrats...you've tied for the shorts secret alias blog name that visits here (c is the other). And anyone that even knows Koyaanisqatsi is ok with me!

Sarah said...

That Playboy Weddings idea is something most men would actually read! haha Maybe more men would be involved in the wedding planning process if they had that to use as their reference book!

VE said...

sarah - I doubt it. We'd probably still just look at the pictures! ;)

Dale said...

If you check his profile (lazy VE!), his email's there. It's up to you to rekindle the love. :-)

VE said...

Ok, ok. I'll give some thought to some movie mashups.
