Top German paper takes topless women off front page
Fri Mar 9, 2012 3:11pm EST

BERLIN (Reuters) - Germany's best-selling daily has decided to remove its trademark pictures of topless women from the front page in a gesture towards complaining readers, the paper said on Friday.

Bild, which sells about 4 million copies a day, will now carry the images on page three instead, a format favored by British tabloids.

**SNIP**

Topless women on the cover have been part of Bild's identity for 28 years. More than 5,000 have bared their breasts there since 1984, the daily said.

Technically, you don't have to be a reader to look at nekkid women.

I always thought the Super Bowl “wardrobe malfunction” was pre-planned because somebody understood that the quality of entertainment being offered was so inferior that it needed sex to help it sell. Other than that, it’s got next to nothing going for it.

Need to see photographic evidence before I can render judgement on the soundness of this newspaper’s decision.

Ron White: Some friends of mine asked me if I wanted to go to a strip club, and I didn’t... want to. ‘Cause, back me up on this, fellas: once you’ve seen one woman naked, you... wanna see the rest of ‘em naked. Wonder why.....

I would have to agree with that...entertainment acts are so inferior these days...you’d be better off washing and waxing your car for entertainment than watching some acts.

I haven’t been to a strip club since 1968 Okinawa. Haven’t been to a bar since 1981.

I got to thinking....”What if I was found dead in here!” Haven’t been back.

May grandfather, who spent a summer in Hamburg in the 1920’s so he could pass German 1.01, brought back sheet musik for that song that included the “humorous” verse “Ist das nicht der Jude Meyer?”, illustrated with the silhouette of an Hasidic man. A real laugh riot, them Krauts. (Oh du schoene, oh du feine Jude Meyer.) Some were a little better, like the illustration of a Schwiegermutter (rhymes with Teller Butter) brandishing a rolling pin.

Maybe that’s were Göring got his inspiration for his famous quote, “No enemy bomber can reach the Ruhr. If one reaches the Ruhr, my name is not Goering. You may call me Meyer.”
