Fresh on the heels of last night’s CNN debate, where moderator John King asked Newt Gingrich about allegations that he wanted an open marriage, and Gingrich responded with a blistering charge that the liberal media was attacking him while protecting Obama, this explosive newspaper appeared on newsstands this morning.

We showed a shockingly important piece of the art and provided this painfully obvious hint: "There is at least ONE eyebrow on this cover." Even with all of that plopped in your laps, not one Idiotical reader gave us the correct answer.
