Two ying-yang features of “Web 2.0”, if you will (and please don’t): Terrible user interfaces and poke-fun-at-selfism when you don’t expect it.
This collection of terrible LIFE Magazine covers are presented – with facepalmed commentary – by LIFE itself. (Well, the magazine, at least.)
As a chicken fancier myself, I’ve never minded the Big Chicken cover, but I did have a good laugh at LIFE’s description:
In LIFE’s 75 years, this is the only cover not to feature the distinctive logo in the upper left corner. Not surprising: If your cover story was as newsy, sexy, and controversial as “White Leghorn Rooster,” you’d hide your logo, too.
