Newsweek Cover About Female Suicide Bombers Features Tampon Dynamite

Illustration for article titled Newsweek Cover About Female Suicide Bombers Features Tampon Dynamite

Newsweek Pakistan's latest cover story is on the rise in female suicide bombers. And, so, naturally, this week's cover features the words LADY PARTS emblazoned over the image of tampons with lit fuses where the removal string would normally be. That's some TIME-level trolling, Newsweek. Kudos, I guess.

The good news is that Newsweek's bombpons cover allows you to tick off several squares on Deliberately Provocative Magazine Cover Bingo. The bad news is that everyone on staff cringed when we saw it.

To channel Cecily Strong: Can we not? But also, like, don't.

Bombpons? Surely you meant Tambombs.
Also, fun fact: in New Zealand and Australia it is a perennially hilarious joke among kids to call Vegemite "Vaginamite". We can repurpose this! You are welcome - nay, extolled - to change the article title to "Newsweek Cover About Suicide Bombers Features Tambomb Vaginamite"
