    1. That makes me wonder about "market research." But then again, I AM "Norman" on anything and everything official.

  3. Norman?? You're Norman?? You don't look anything like the fat guy from Cheers. Or the 60s-era first-baseman for my Tigers. . .

    Ya gotta like that 83%-off 'trial offer', dontcha? Careful, tho. . . I think they're tryin' to get ya hooked. . .

      Three times a month... when those checks come in (well, metaphorically speaking: it's direct deposit these days, to Norman).

      That price makes me wonder how they can afford to keep publishing.

    2. Makes me wonder about their profit margin on the full-price subscriptions. . .

  4. Lately, I have noticed that several of the "older men" blogs that I sometimes visit show more and more mild porn - nekkid women shots. It makes me uncomfortable.

    1. Ooops. I've been known to post a naked woman or two.

    2. You are not a married man looking at other naked women - not quite so weird.

  5. I haven't had an offer like that in ...gee, I can't remember ...how many years.

  6. Heh. I know better than to touch this one.

  7. HEY! Where's my offer? I feel left out! Just not "upscale" enough (or "dirty" enough, lol) to merit attention, I guess--or do they scan for marriage? Heh. Better purge all my cookies--these damn marketing algorithms are too damned ever-present.

  8. I think mailing lists get sold and bought. How much is the subscription to Jugs Magazine going for, nowadays?

    2. When we lived in NYC, I met a lot of interesting people. One night I was out for beers with a group of journalist types (I married a magazine journalist) and I met the guy who edited (and wrote most of the copy for) Juggs magazine, as well as other related titles.

      When I inquired about his work, he said the single best thing I've ever heard anyone say in a bar about their job, ever:

      "The ladies inspire me."

    3. Heh. Now THAT'S the sort of literary salon I want to hang with.

  9. I don't think I've seen a Playboy magazine in 30 years or more, and I don't remember where I saw it. Course to get my motor running is best done by someone jumping on me and tearing my clothes off. Then I get real interested, real fast.

    Until then I just lick my lips...

    1. We're in the same boat on all counts, féminité.

  10. MY WIFE says you should send this to Jay Leno. He does do a bit about these sorts of things. I agree with her. It's not just the mail itself, but your comment. That's funny stuff.

    Also, I think Leno pays for those sorts of submissions. Could make your next Happy Hour even happier!

    1. Nice thought, that, but I'm REALLY lazy. ;-)

Just be polite... that's all I ask.
