Okay, at the risk of seeming like an breast obsessed horndog...

but what's the deal of the B&W photo of her standing at a microphone, smiling, and pulling down her shirt? I mean, that's such a breast obsessed horndog type fantasy I can't imagine any legitimate actress actually engaging in it. What the heck is going on?

... sorry, it's been bugging me for days.

woozy, just what are you doing in your icon? NOW it looks like you're humping a tree trunk...

It's a party game. I hang onto a tree and two friends (preferably a strapping young man right before pubescent developement and an ample fleshy woman) pull on my tail. How long they pull depend on how many trivia questions I answer corrctly. If they succeed in pulling me off the tree, I get dragged by my tail so the grass tickles my nether regions. If they can't pull me off or they slip, then I get to chase them around nipping at their bottoms. Don't you ever play games like that, dear Hamano?

Actually, that is a rather embarrassing early iconagraph of me. Many years ago I met a poor boy known as Ojo the Unlucky, who was traveling with his uncle's murderer and a hard-hearted transparent narcissist. They wanted the three hairs from my tail for some occult necromancy. That sounded like a lark so I joined them but they couldn't extract my hairs. They pulled as I clung to a tree but the result was futile. We still went ahead with our plans and procurred a oil from the sinews of the yellow emperor, water from caverns impervious to man and light, and mutant horticulture, but we we're thwarted in our attempt to rip a limb from the subject of the metal monarch. Still it was good times!

I actually know this one! This harkens back to the days when I was seventeen but I said I was eighteen so I could get a subscription to Playboy sent to my friends older brother's PO box so my parents wouldn't find out (yes, I'm a devious and perverted bastard). That B&W photo was in that end section (I don't remember what it was called any more, it was eight years ago that I had that subscription) that has all the hollywood naked news with the B&W pictures. Beverly was speaking at a Breast Cancer benefit of some sort. When she felt the moment was right, she proudly displayed her beautiful, cancer-free breasts which had recently been operated on to remove a tumor. At least, that's what I remember reading. It was my first time seeing her chest, and I had wanted to ever since being denied in European Vacation when I was a small boy.

As for the playboy subscription, that ended in tragedy. They had never recieved my first payment for the subscription, so I sent it again, this time with a letter of complaint including my name and phone number. And so when they called to resolve the issue a couple of weeks later, my father happened to answer the phone. Being of a strict mormon upbringing, this news did not bode well. The subscription was cancelled by my now-screaming-into-the-phone Dad, who told the caller that I was underage (you must be 18), and I was punished somehow. I don't actually remember how, as the cancelling of the subscription was the harshest punishment I could think of.

Ah, youth.

Ah, I vaguely remember reading that in the news.

Sigh, that this was an honest gesture about the serious and still ignored subject of breast cancer, and then appears in a back section that is designed, let's be honest with ourselves guys, for guys to drool over leaves me feeling a little ... icky.

Well, let's not feel icky! Obviously she's relieved to still have nice boobies for men to drool over (I guess the tumor was benign)... look at that smile! It that's what it takes to raise men's awareness of breast cancer I'm all for it! The gesture apparently had a lasting impact on sinisterguffaw, of all people.

In my experience, women's breasts have two functions that save them from being more trouble than they seem to be worth. Paramount is making milk for cute little babies, of course. Both my children were raised on 100% breast milk, and as babies they were the healthiest happiest smartest bambinos I've ever come across. That saved us a lot of money, too (formula is expensive). Secondarily breasts are good for controlling human male behavior. D'Angelo went on to have twins with Al Pacino, but back when that photo was taken, I believe I know what those breasts were used for....

So I don't think we should be forced to feel icky for ogling them... she's showing them, she seems happy, so what's the harm?

I like ogling them. I just don't like we've turned natural hormones and harmless pseudo-sexual behavior into a juvenile devisive joke. It should be a good natured mature inclusive joke. Oh, it's hard to put in words...

I guess I feel Playboy is chortling and putting her down when they ought to be respecting her. I don't think Playboy likes women. They certainly don't know how to simultaneously ogle and be respectful.

I guess you just don't get the whole Playboy concept.... Playboy is currently RUN by women who are getting rich by exploiting male readers who happily fork over the dough for its magazine and now on-line content. A certain famous figurehead senior citizen (Hef) is also thoroughly exploited for publicity purposes. Maybe that "icky" feeling you have is from being so easily manipulated by these ladies as they rape your wallet and dignity.

PLAYBOY ENTERPRISES
Christy Hefner, President/CEO
Carol Devine, Senior VP, Human Resources (I guess "human resources" includes women in the buff)

My attitude is to understand the dynamics here, and say, hey, why worry about it?

I don't understand you dilemma. Gazing at and admiring a woman's beauty, naked or otherwise, is an art in itself and a very dignified pastime, especially in my ancestral homeland. Che bellissima!

Unfortunately in my homeland, it's a juvenille giggle fest by adolescent socially retarded men who feel more comfortable snorting at the grotesque than engaging in meaningful contact with another.

I say, let's bring back the dignity when we strip each other naked and caress one another with our eyes, and, !man! I have *got* to get out of the boxy apartment once in a while...

Has everyone been drinking today? First I find woozy (in Summer Movies), and now Eoliano (here)...

Somehow, I feel cheated.

Hmm, If one of us (I'll refrain from identities) *were* a dilemna and I were to somehow perch upon said one of us would I be on the horns of a dilemna.

*Man*, I **really** have to get out of this boxy apartment!

It's not that. It seems as if what you said there (in Summer Movie Wrap-Up) and what he (Eoliano) said here doesn't make any sense.

Your comment:

"Do I? Well, somethibg occured."

Eoliano's comment:

"I don't understand you dilemma."

Are these typos, word collisions, or something else? (I am not attempting to berate anyone. I just do not understand what was said.)

I do not think I am known for my typing skills. Mine was a typo but I liked how it looked. I can not speak for Eo.
