Playboy `readers' get 3-D centerfold
breitbart.com/AP ^ | 5/11/2010 | DON BABWIN

Posted on 05/11/2010 5:41:00 AM PDT by SonOfDarkSkies

Playboy readers who can only imagine what it would look like if a centerfold jumped right off the page are getting new specs to help them see into Hef's world.

The magazine's June edition hits newsstands Friday equipped with 3-D glasses. Now the toy that has kids dodging dragons, meatballs and tall blue aliens at the movies will help adults focus on what is, at first glance, a very blurry Playmate of the Year.

"What would people most like to see in 3-D?" asked Playboy founder Hugh Hefner. "Probably a naked lady."

Hefner makes no secret of hoping to capitalize on the popularity of 3-D movies such as "Avatar" and "How to Train Your Dragon," even as he makes no secret of not quite getting what all the fuss is about.

"I'm not a huge enthusiast of 3-D," he said in a telephone interview. "I leave real life to go to the movies and 2-D is fine with me."

If the thought of grown men sitting back in their recliners with a pair of 3-D glasses doesn't quite say "Playboy," it should be noted that a few months ago the magazine put Marge Simpson—yes, the blue-haired animated mother of Bart—on the cover and in a two-page centerfold.

I believe it may have pre-dated me a bit, but wasn’t 3D really big back in the 60s/70s? It’s funny how a few movies using a new technology bring it back en vogue.

The Bunny Bunch is losing money almost as fast as the U.S. Treasury. The aging pornographer, Hef, always light in his slippers, is getting desperate and turning to gimmicks.

I’ve got an answer for world peace. We take the money that it’d cost us to build just one B-1 bomber, that one that doesn’t work. We change it into five dollar bills. We put all of this money into bags and we fly over the Atlantic Ocean, past Europe because they’re getting their shit togehter anyway. We drop this money on the Russian people. All those little tiny pictures of Abraham Lincoln come tumblin’ down out of the sky. I want them to feel those sawbucks in their hands. You know how your money feels when you accidently leave it in your blue jeans and you take it out and it’s all warm and soft, oooh! Well we let those Russian people hang on to that money for about a week and then we fly back over there. We fill our airplanes full of mail order catalogs from L.L. Bean. From up in Columbus, Sporty’s Pilot Shop. And Victoria’s Secret! The
Russian people have this money in their hand, the catalogs come down. They look at those pictures on the opening pages of the Victoria’s Secret catalog, not back in the outdoors section, you know what I’m talking about right? They got the money, they got the catalogs, they’re going to get the idea. They send all the money back to us to buy the stuff. We have full employment. There’s world peace, and the Russians have crotch-less underwear through the twenty-first century! Thank you!”

I know who you’re talking about, but no, I didn’t see the 3D special. I was born in 80, if that helps define where I’m coming from. I remember a few 3D video games for Nintendo back in the day, but 3D was generally confined to Disney World and Busch Gardens for me.

She has been running it for years. She might even be retired by now. I think she is close to 60.

You aren’t wrong. A former co-worker (who was a Muslim originally from Pakistan) once told me that if the US wants to defeat the Taliban, we should just air drop Playboy magazines and live pigs on them 24 x 7. They’d freak out
and fall apart.

It's a shame her love isn't returned. Obama is more of a Playgirl kind of guy.

Back about forty years ago a soldier lost his eye sight in the Vietnam war. On his way home from the hospital, the stewardess on the aircraft asked if he would like a magazine to read.

He asked her for PLAYBOY, in Braille.

One nitpick of a really good idea: A “sawbuck” is a ten. Fives are “fins.”

I had a blind housemate years ago, and he received the braille edition of Playboy every month. I kid you not.
