Call for Photos: Our Magazine, out in the World


If you turn to page 9 of the March-April issue of mental_floss, you'll find a great photo of the magazine in its natural habitat, sent in by reader Sarah from Mountain View, California.

Photos of people with our magazine or wearing our t-shirts make us happy. If you take an interesting shot, send it to Perhaps you'll end up on the Letters page or here on the blog.

(Note: I think we've met our quota of on-the-toilet photos, so let's keep the camera out of the bathroom.)

Here are some of my favorite pictures we've received over the years:

The pics above are from Carrie and Steve. They enjoy a good _floss on the beach near their home in Curacao, where we hope to one day open a satellite office.

Here's John, a dentist from Kilmarnock, Virginia, reading mental_floss on Mental Floss. If you choose to name your vessel after our publication (or if, like John, you named your boat long before you heard about the magazine), we'll happily display your photo here. If you name a non-aquatic vehicle after us, we'll evaluate those on a case-by-case basis.

Lilah created such a masterpiece in her "My First Jackson Pollock" onesie, her parents framed her outfit along with her painting.
