The Suspicious Sixteen
It seemed a terrible oversight that the editors of Tomorrow's World should provide us with a rogues gallery of untruth tellers on the cover of their latest issue, and yet not bother to identify by name those unlucky enough to be nominated.
But of course, they did. In very small print at the bottom of page 4.
So here is the full list...
Top row: John Lennon, Alfred Kinsey, Che Guevara, Alfred North Whitehead.
Second row: Marx, Nietzsche, Mao and Darwin.
Third row: Stalin, Ingersoll, Ghandi and Richard Dawkins.
Bottom row: Bill Nye, Kurt Gödel, Lenin and Freud.
Bill Nye must be flattered to be up there with Charles Darwin and Ghandi. I dare say he's already framed the cover to hang in his study.
Thanks to Corky who, with more patience and skill than I'm capable of, captured those hiding on the top row underneath the magazine logo. I guess you could say he uncorked them!
And special thanks to the lads at TW. Great entertainment value. Mad magazine couldn't have done better.
