Print Ads Part 5 - What Sort of Man.......

Sighhhh! Yet another icon of my youth has passed.  Well sort of.  You probably heard that Playboy Magazine has decided to stop publishing nudes in their mag.  The rational is that "all sorts of porn are only a click away on the internet."

HEY!!  That's not the point!!  Playboy represented an ideal in many a young lad's mind.  It wasn't about the nude pics (well maybe a little, okay a lot.)  It was a right of passage.  Let's face it, to catch a peek of the wonders inside a Playboy was the ultimate goal of many a young adolescent male.  And the coolest kid on the block was the one that found his old man's "stash." (and invited over his friends for a look!!!!)

Naturally, Playboy caught a lot of flack for "objectifying" women or some such nonsense.  So they tried to class it up with its "What Sort of Man Reads Playboy" shtick.  Therefore, in honor of the passage of an era.......................

"What sort of man reads the 'Kathy Loghry Blogspot'?  He's a man that can perfectly blend a casual afternoon picnic with the suavest fashions of the 70s.  With nothing more than an impish, mischievous smirk, he can slay the heart of the hottest babe on the planet.  And then without breaking frame turn and ask 'What! you forgot the mustard?'  Yeah, the  term alpha is but a mere, imperfect adjective to describe his aloof, mysterious persona......."

Yeah, those were the days my friend, we thought they'd never end.
