(Newser) – Few can relate better to Friday's terror attacks in the City of Light than the staff of Charlie Hebdo, the Parisian satirical magazine that lost 12 members in its own terrorist attack in January. A sneak peek of this week's cover, tweeted by columnist Mathieu Madenian ahead of Wednesday's issue, offers a glimpse into the magazine's stance on the most recent devastation, per Business Insider. The cartoon shows a man dancing and guzzling Champagne, which spews out through his bullet hole-riddled body. The accompanying message: "Ils Ont Les Armes. On Les Emmerde. On A Le Champagne!," which New York magazine says translates to: "They have arms. f--- them. We have the Champagne!" (John Oliver likely approves.)
