This amused me. I saw this magazine at the supermarket checkout aisle (the ones in Berkeley would be worth deconstructing if you couldn't already guess what kind of magazines are ubiquitous).
It is a magazine for people with food allergies that features poppy seed bagels on the cover. The story included detailed, lovingly illustrated, step-by-step instructions for making your very own poppy seed bagels.
I want to write an earnest, wounded letter they must get once a month over there at Doing Without Magazine. 'How DARE you put _________ on the cover when I am allergic?' It would be funny by the third month.
