"We Are Dead But Anna Wintour Is Immortal," wrote The Cut. What sparked the genius headline? Amid rampant rumors that Anna Wintour's September issue of Vogue will be her last, Condé Nast CEO Bob Sauerberg took to Twitter to set the record straight—sort of.
"Anna Wintour is an incredibly talented and creative leader whose influence is beyond measure," he stated. "She is integral to the future of our company's transformation and has agreed to work with me indefinitely in her role as @voguemagazine editor-in-chief and artistic director of Condé Nast."
There's one word that caught the internet's attention: indefinitely. Will she still be a cyborg editor in chief in 50 years? Inquiring minds want to know. (One Instagrammer even took the liberty of photoshopping Wintour in a Matrix costume for your enjoyment.) While Sauerberg's statement was intended to squash rumors once and for all, it actually sparked plenty of funny reactions ruminating on Wintour's "indefinite" future—see our favorite ones below.
