They say you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but these "they" people should mind their own business. Judging books by covers is how you filter through the seemingly infinite amount of options at your disposal. And when it comes to the memoirs of former Saturday Night Live
cast members, if the visuals of the book can make you chuckle, that's a pretty good indicator of what the words inside will do. So on that note, let's determine the readability of some SNL
alum autobiographies based solely on their cover/author photos. 8. Rachel Dratch's Girl Walks into a Bar...
Not to be a Debbie Downer
, but this is pretty boring.7. Jim Breuer's I'm Not High
Jim Breuer's face makes this title hard to believe.6. Steve Martin's Born Standing Up
Rabbit ears — someone's finally trying.5. Tracy Morgan's I Am the New Black
Rabbit ears + a gut that looks like a chocolate watermelon = upgrade (Also, way to class it up with the tie.)4. Sarah Silverman's The Bedwetter
Points for a great subtitle and for looking like a propaganda poster for Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. 3. Darrell Hammond's God, If You're Not There, I'm F*cked
The low-budget look, the face, the fog machine, and a random crow to top things off? Bravo, Hammond.2. Tina Fey's Bossypants
Man hands... killing it.
1. Amy Poehler's Yes Please
I know what you're thinking: "Really?! How can this be number 1? This seems pretty meh." Yes, but Amy Poehler wins because her author photo is the best.
How could you not read this after seeing Captain Poehler?
