Hara Kiri was the highly controversial satirical French magazine published  by humorist Georges Bernier, author François Cavanna and comic artist (and artistic director)Fred Aristidès in the 1960s. The magazine's subtitle Journal bête et méchant
which literally translates to Stupid and evil magazine and this was not an understatement. They were renowned for sticking it to the powers that be and at times during their publishing history, their controversial attitudes saw them being temporarily banned by the French Government.

Their front covers were famously perverted,  bizarre and highly creative and at the time, and in fact even by today's standards in a league of their own... Below is a collection of some of these cover.

Oh i don't agree at all, often as I am grooming the luxe pubic hair that grows down past my knees, while wearing my favorite bird fetus necklace, and fixing a nutritious meal of rat-wich & slut-hair-soup, do I think 'where is a magazine that truly reflects the lifestyle of normal god-fearing wholesome folk like myself?'.....
