Does Editorial Talk to Marketing?


I'm thinking, "no". These are the front and back covers of the new issue of Nature magazine.
The journal swears it is horrified by the coincidence.
"We didn't know until the issue landed on our desks," Nature pleaded to the media.
"It just goes to show that editorial and advertising aren't working in cahoots."
A-yep. (From the Daily Mail.)

The whole kerfuffle strikes me as being morbidly hyper-sensitive. (But, then, I grew up watching Warner Bros. cartoons where Hitler might be represented as a pushy chicken.)

I must be weird because the first thing I thought was -- what are these two people doing on the cover of Nature Magazine?
