Anyone have a few dozen country clubs they can display this in?

The last person we want to copy is trump.

(51,148 posts)It went over no one's head.

You missed the point.

We can do better than trump. Why dignify his egotistical dummied up covers as being worthy of mocking by doing our own dummied up covers? Where's the originality in that?

(30,764 posts)It's clearly NOT fine to make one that is boastful of oneself, then hang it up all over the world and pretend it is real.

Surely you can see the difference.

(24,609 posts)It wouldn't be DU without at least one person pissing on humor to cope with this nightmare we find ourselves in. Your turn at the plate?

#### brush

#### PelicanScot_V3

(70 posts)For the record it was entirely done on befunky.com. As for copying Trump, I highly doubt he has the skills to have done that fake cover himself. And since this was intended as satire and not for public display in TheFerret's hotels and country clubs, I think it's safe to say, it's not really copying Trump. So there.

#### Leghorn21

(13,397 posts)love the yuge response you're getting here today, 'cause it means DU knows frickin talent when we see it!! Welcome to DU, you!!

Now, we all have our favorite TheFerret noms de plume, so may I just say that mine is, from May 30:

*Cheeto Broderick Crawford

(*Fuck you. YOU try making up all these nicknames every fucking week)

(...I just had to get that in here today, dammit!)

Again, SO many heartfelt "welcome to DU"s are being sent your way!

#### Amaryllis

(9,514 posts)He may want to do that. It is an excellent representation of his unique brand of humor. One might even think you colluded with him on it. But if you were truly copying Trump, you would deny that, even if it were true.

#### brush

(51,148 posts)No one thought he did them.

(70 posts)There's a woman in my office who is convinced I am TheFerret. (I write really snarky internal memos from time to time and she knows I'm capable of letting the F-bombs fly). I've got her hooked on you. She gets in to work half an hour before I do and the days you post, I always have an e-mail from her letting me know to go read it.

(15,805 posts)and Melania is his wife. A man with such small... um, hands, would have trouble aiming and choke on the approach, if you get where I'm going?. Unable to find the goal, he tends to leave behind multiple 'skidmarks' until he finally locates the target and homes in. Thus,"Candycorn skidmarks".

(56,817 posts)as a joke/prank and then showing it to your friends/co-workers. Heck, if Trump made a fake Time cover just like that one and showed it to Melania and Ivanka as a joke, I would be fine with it, as long as he said it was a joke afterwards and he tossed it in the recycle bin a week or two later.

However, making a fake Time cover and then putting it on display in all of your offices and resorts around the world for EIGHT DAMN YEARS is just really bizarre.

#### PelicanScot_V3

(70 posts)I read an article about what was wrong with Trump's fake cover and took steps to avoid some of his glaring errors. Hence the avoidance of exclamation points as well. If you do a Google image search of "Time Magazine Covers" the majority of them don't have barcodes.

i want to see some real live action around that.

he probably has a secret service guy standing guard
