As a science-fiction buff, bibliophile and amateur antiquarian, I'm only too aware that back in der Tag,* readers with any sense at all would rip off the covers of pulps like Amazing, Weird Tales and Air War after buying them, lest folks think they actually read such lurid trash. Even though they did.

Ew. Ready, gals? R-r-r-rip! That's so not coffee-table material!
* Like I have to explain this? Ask yer Mother.
