Journalistic Hijinx

I just came across a rather funky site where you can make magazine covers of yourself:

It's a pretty simple concept: upload a photo and it becomes the background of a magzine cover template. Still, it's quite fun seeing yourself sprawled all over the front of Time magazine or National Geographic. Oxford's got enough magazine shops and unusual magazines for these not to look out of place. I can see them now, proudly displayed in Smiths or being flogged to unwary tourists outside the RadCam who recognise the inner celebrity in you.

Speaking of journalistic productions, I noticed that the Daily Mail headline generator ( is currently offline. I wonder if they've got in trouble with the media tycoons. Still, it was a simple enough concept - I imagine a similar effect could be created with fridge magnets...
