Look, we all make mistakes. Some mistakes are larger than others, and every once in a while they come in the form of, say, a bite-sized human on the cover of what is otherwise a legitimate business publication.
In 25 years, we’ve made a few missteps. So in honor of our 25th anniversary, we invite you to have a good laugh at our expense. Check out our top ten worst covers, and vote at the bottom for who deserves an apology.
Laugh all you want, but we’re not the only ones with design dings on our record. We are proud to say that, unlike Time, we have never featured a cat on a cover, nor has one of our covers ever prompted such an outcry that we were forced to issue a 7-illustration explanation in defense of its absurdity.
You are welcome.
