If there's one thing we've learned in doing this blog, it's that you can't judge a ladymag by its cover. A cover touting a new diet tip can lead you to a story about a woman battling heart disease (True Story!) and we are pretty sure all those big numbers come from a fortune cookie, because we've never been able to fact-check them. After the jump, loyal Jezebelles Maria and Cheryl actually read Cosmo — haven't you always wanted to know how to use the power of body language to seem like a more understanding best friend? — and redesign the cover to more accurately reflect what's inside.

Thanks to Cheryl Campbell's help with all of our images!
