The Empire Strikes Below the Belt
For all of you kids out there who like to look at D-cupped C-list actresses and models, Wal-Mart is striking back by dropping Maxim, FHM, and Stuff from its shelves. This should raise the nation's IQ by nearly 7 points. All hail the New Puritans!
It'll be interesting to see what this means for Playboy's redesign. After hiring Maxim's former editor, Playboy has planned to become even less nude than it already was, the idea being that it would reduce the stigma of posing for and purchasing it. Of course, if buying Maxim becomes stigmatizing, why should Playboy bother to make the switch?
