Look at this: now the Intelligent Design creationists are branching out into pirate fashion. They’re everywhere!

    I’m a little skeptical of the “beautiful” claim on the cover, but that could just be me.

    He’s not smooth of cheek, though, is he?

    I thought a designer would include two eyes. Hope he’s not been designed a gay pirate. Baby jesus wouldn’t like that

    And cover price is over $12 an issue, if my math is worth anything. No thanks.

    For about $1000 they could’ve retained a relatively decent and competent trademark attorney and realized what a mistake it would be to brand their periodical as they chose.

    Just so everyone is clear, that’s International Design magazine–a fashion magazine that has nothing to do with creationism or the IDiots.

    Um, I don’t think that that magazine is I.D. as in “Intelligent Design” – it’s “International Design.” My neighbor, a professor of art, architecture and design is subscribed to that.

    Just check out the magazine’s current issue:

    Please, PZ – you rock, but you dropped the ball on this one.

    Dan, it was a joke from PZ. He knows that the ID crowd doesn’t have any magazines. Heck their online “peer-reviewed” (i.e. not peer reviewed) journal has not been “published” for quite a while.

    Yes, I see the humor and weirdness tags. Perhaps I just have a different sense of humor. I’m personally of the opinion that there’s plenty of material with which to get a laugh out of intelligent design than simply putting odd pictures up that happen to be associated with the letters “ID.”

    The fact that it’s NOT an intelligent design-related pic kinda kills the joke.

    If you doubt that this is an ID magazine, how is it there are PIRATES + PARROTS?

    Luckily it’s “International Design” and not Intelligent Design. You can’t trademark a couple of letters of the alphabet, can you? (You can’t copyright a title.) Otherwise Consolidated Edison would be suing AC-DC.

    No, that IS the joke.

    We could teach you, but we’d have to charge…

    and I sez the budgie’s dead. it’s and ex-parrot!
    oh, wait… that’s not the joke either is it.
