I'm sure you've all been at the store, in line for the self-checkout (who doesn't love the self-checkout?) and seen the Church of Oprah's monthly publication, O.
That's right. Oprah's on the cover of every magazine.
I really don't understand what kind of shameless pride it takes to do something like that, but, whatever. That's the world for you.
Apparently, the Joyce has been taking a few pointers from the Oprah.
Yes, that is a Joyce Meyer magazine, with, you guessed it, Joyce Meyer on the cover. Not only that, but if you peek down in the lower right corner there, you can see that Joyce Meyer ministries has got more fun on the way: The Penny, Joyce's "compelling" first novel. Give me a minute while I go pre-order that...
Honestly, the only thing I could see as remotely compelling about this book is the fact that it compels me to have a book burning.
Can you imagine the conversation between Joyce and her publicist over this one? Seriously, I'm sure it's a Christian company, but the guys must either be unbelievers or incredibly whipped by Diva of the Faith, and I mean that in the worst possible way.
Joyce: Hi, Mike, it's Joyce. Listen, I want to make a magazine.
Publicist Guy: Um, okay, Joyce, whatever you say. What will it be about?
Joyce: Well, me of course...uh, and you know, confidence and living up to your potential and all that jive. You know, the usual.
Publicist Guy: Okay, well, do you have any ideas to work with?
Joyce: Yeah, I've written out a few articles. All I really know for sure is that I want to be on the cover.
Publicist Guy: Wow, Joyce. Don't you think that sounds a little...*gulp*...egotistical. I mean, we are supposed to be a Christian publishing firm. You know, a jealous God, and all that.
Joyce: You idiot! God's not going to be jealous. She's already got her own magazine.
