    Except this time, it's official. :lol:

    As usual, the world is weirder than I expect.

    Delightfully so, in my opinion. I like it when artificial constructs like "normal" are challenged. Imagination is the basis of all we truly have.

    Why would people pay money to see something they could Google for free? And she'd be doing alot more then just sitting around nekid. Not that I would know anything about that......

    Do you think it's a coincidence that Marge Simpson is on the cover and the new CEO's name is Flanders? I think not. Always knew there was something just underneath the surface in those Flanders boys.

    Not interested. I saw this earlier this morning and pretty much did what the image of Picard is doing that was posted in the first page of this thread. Playboy wants to market to a younger audience? That's fine. Doing an animated character isn't the way to go. Try an A or even B list actress...that will get people's attention. I haven't picked up an issue in at least three years. IIRC my literary history....Playboy was the first to publish Dune wasn't it? I think in one of my old Dune covers it said first published in Playboy Magazine in 1965 or something like that.

    Not sure I want to know the kind of men who want to see naked pictures of a cartoon mother of three who's in her 40s.

    See I've always thought that Playboy made a mistake moving away from the high end of men's magazines. It's true, why pay for it when you could download it for free if you're just going for tits and ass. Which would make one think that offering more and raising the bar again, while at the same time with a focus on a newer generation and their issues would be the way to go; not just playing to the average.

    ~shrug~ Then again, the way I see it why settle for "Good enough" in any endeavour.

    So what do you have a problem with? That some men who find a cartoon character attractive - or that some men find 40-year old women who have given birth attractive? :shifty:

    More the former than the later, the combination of the two make it a bit odder, but there's nothing necessairly wrong with a mother of three, I know a couple who're fairly fetching.

    Hell, I'd go ahead and say (when her hair is down) Marge can be fetching. But for her to be in a magazine like Playboy?!

    Yeeeeah...

    If I am being totally honest I have had less than noble thoughts about some comic book characters like Black Cat and Catwoman (I guess it's a cat fetish...) or Elven babes from World of Warcraft but even I scoff at anyone who would scrap to Marge Simpson.

    Well, it's not the sexual allure of a yellow cartoon character, so yes, i'd say it's the novelty value.

    Seems like a perfectly reasonable way to sell magazines to me, it's just a bit of a joke with one of the world's most popular cartoon characters. People do seem to be taking Playboy a little seriously.

    I wonder what Bart will do when he gets his hands on this issue...

    The words "Ay carumba" spring to mind...

    Hey, it might be cute if the show did a tie-in episode for this issue, a story wherein Marge (for some reason) decides to pose for Playboy. Kinda like how "Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words" featured a New York Times Sunday crossword with a hidden message from Homer to Lisa (encoded acrostically in the first letters of the clues), and the actual NYT Sunday crossword published the day that episode aired was the exact same one seen in the episode and actually did contain that message.

    If everyone were gay, the world would be like a rainbow-colored Children of Men.

    What's so bad about that? This planet would be far better off without humanity--we are a blight, more devastating to the world around our mutant monkey asses than was the meteor that wiped out the dinosaurs. That's not opinion, it's been documented.

    Of course, I just had the time of my life orally exploring the nether parts of a very beautiful and very female exotic dancer so I'd just as soon limit the species to non-procreative sex of any kind. But I thought CoM was the feel-good movie of the year till that damned baby showed up.
