Welcome back to Cover Snark!
From Lisa: I feel bad nominating this cover for Cover Snark because the artwork is actually pretty good. There are no disembodied heads, intimidating nipples or concerning skin conditions. But! Why that font? Ever since I spotted it, I keep reading it as “Mated to Meh.” I cannot let that go.
Elyse: Mek is the sound I’m making looking at the cover.
Sarah: This sounds like a reddit post: “AITA for thinking my spouse is Meh?”
When Bad Fonts Happen to Otherwise Solid Covers
Elyse: Mek is like that sound cats make when they chatter at birds
Tara: Wait, that’s a K?!
From Carole: Another OMG OMG what is he doing to that Bear.
Sarah: is he a member of a motorcycle gang, and are they the Very Vascular Bear Bikers, aka the VVBB?
Kiki: “Damn, that bear looks SEXY!”—this guy, probably
Sarah: Imagine the pick up lines for men trying to pick up bears – like, actual bears.
Sneezy: “Excuse me, are you a priest? Because I want to bear myself to you.”
From Elizabeth: The cover is weird, but the title is bonkers – Alien Knight Teddy Bear Troubles – WTF.
Sarah: I just hear Freud’s voice: “Tell me about your troubles, Mr. Knight Teddy Bear. Is it about your mother?”
Elyse: His tattoo looks like a shitty car decal.
Sneezy: Or cosplay paint he’s worn for so long it somehow got colonized by several generations of mold instead of flaking off.
From Shannon: It’s like Harry and the Hendersons‘ arctic cousin on the cover.
Sarah: It really is, but is he wearing an apron? Do I see a hint of furry flank?
Dear god I just said furry flank. Please excuse me.
Kiki: Based on this cover I have to assume the love story is between that snowman and the yeti, yes?
Sarah: One can only hope – but if the yeti is holding a frying pan, does that mean he’s cooking hot food for a snowman? That won’t end well?
Tara: Or is the snowman a sidekick?
Amanda: I love the modesty shorts that have been photoshopped on.
