Gervais…I’m just Sayin’

This should speak for itself, but I’m sure that what one will find in New Humanist will equal what’s on the cover.

Even at that, there’s a story behind the photo itself:

Remember how comedian Ricky Gervais submitted a picture of himself, dressed as a clown with a gun in his mouth, for the cover of Rolling Stone? They rejected it because it was “too offensive” and Gervais said he didn’t even bother to submit his second choice: himself, shirtless, holding a mic stand as if he were nailed to a crucifix.

Rolling Stone may have said no, but New Humanist magazine said yes!

I guess Rolling Stone was too unfamiliar with music history to recall what happened when Syd Barrett was told that the song “Let’s Roll Another One” would not be released as a Pink Floyd B-side.
