Back to my coverage of the magazine beat this week with another one of my semi-regular posts about the continuing men's magazine wars in the USA. This week, I have nothing to say at all about Maxim, which continues to lurch with one boring effort after another. I think Audrina Patridge is on the cover this month. Who cares!!?
Instead, they got -- not even a live human being. They got a cartoon. Marge Simpson.
O. M. G. See, I told you Playboy was desperate.

(Actually, I'm just kidding around. To be honest, I think this whole Marge Simpson Playboy cover idea is hilarious. There may be hope for that rag yet.)
