What th -? A National Geographic Swimsuit Issue??

I was minding my own business, scanning other blogs on my list, noting the intelligence and wit of the entires therein, compared to my latest missives about mostly nothing. Then I see an entry on Chris’s site that catches my eye: word that National Geographic is issuing a special one-time-only issue on 100 years of swimsuits. Er…um…d’oh! What the hell is going on? I’m thinking, nah, this must be a joke. So I go to the National Geographic web site, and damned it isn’t true. And what’s with “100 Years”? Have the NG photogs been secretly photographing models in bathing suits since 1903?

The larger question is: is nothing scared anymore? The answer is: of course not, nothing ever was. Duh. Sports Illustrated: yes, and I’ve bought every one since 1975. But National Geographic, and to boot, issuing it in February, within the same week or two of SI? Cash grab, anyone? (Yes, I’ll buy a copy…)

Now I’ll go back to reading interesting and thought provoking entries from my friends.

    I don’t understand buying SI Swimsuits when you can buy perfectly good porn that shows a lot more.

    You don’t go down to Bubba’s Boob Emporium to buy S.I. You go over to “Aisle 7, sir.” “Sir,” I say, is the difference.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with porn, per se, Jen, mind you, as it were, so to speak…
