Quote of the Day

“Yikes, Playboy–my old employer–has gone from bimbos to hookers: http://bit.ly/bBNsAB” (It’s a photograph of Ashley Dupre, former prostitute to ex-NY Gov. Eliot Spitzer, at the Playboy mansion.)

–a Tuesday night Tweet from The Atlantic’s Joshua Green. Green worked for Playboy? Well, yes. He logically transitioned from The Onion, to Playboy to “all the serious DC stuff”. At Playboy: “I was an editorial assistant in the Forum section, which is the “issues” section of the mag (and not to be confused with Penthouse Forum which was made-up letters about sexual conquests), and assistant to the Playboy Advisor, which entailed opening a lot of really creepy mail, sometimes with pictures enclosed. Playboy was actually a great place to work. Super nice people.” Among male friends, he said, “I was The Man — until I left, which none of them could ever understand.”
