The New Yorker cover for the week of Nov. 11, titled “Reboot,” pokes fun at the glitches plagueing the federal health care exchange website.

Illustrator Barry Blitt joked on the New Yorker’s Culture Desk blog that he took responsibility for the website since he was born in Canada.

“When I heard that the troubled Obamacare Web site was built by a Canadian company, of course I felt personally responsible,” Blitt said. “I’ll be happy when the glitches are all worked out and everything’s running smoothly, so I can put this all behind me.”
