'Vanity Fair's' Other Insouciant Joke on the Public

What's this? The Suri Cruise photo score must have Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter feeling his oats again, as buried deep in the same issue is a traditional Spy-like clip-out prank. The "joke" is a fake cover flap designed for surreptitious placement over newsstand copies of The Weekly Standard. Unfortunately, with the exception of the ersatz P.J. O'Rourke quote ("I Haven't Been Funny Since 1977"), the japes are highly lame-ass. Seems like more could have been done with the New Yorker's much worse cover flappage.
