A few months ago when Rolling Stone
magazine asked Ricky Gervais for some pictures for the cover of their April issue, the British comic obligingly sent them two; one as a sad clown putting a gun in his mouth and another of himself in a Jesus-on-the-cross-like pose with the word "atheist" scrawled across his chest (just in case, as Gervais later wrote
, the magazine decided the first "was a little strong for their demographic"). Unsurprisingly, Rolling Stone
were a little strong for their demographic and went with a sexy photo of singer Rihanna instead.
But that's not the end of the story...
