    Whatever that means.

    Penthouse says "bicoastal". Does that mean it's a surprise that people in New York and people in California buy this? Is ithat some sort of surprise?

    It'd be like an ice cream fanatic getting a job at an ice cream parlor.
    You'd get sick of it after getting so much.
    Or maybe not.

    That's true. My first job was working at McDonald's. I got sick of Big Macs after I found out what was in the secret sauce.

    The line in the description about promoting and representing the magazine with the talent, caught my eye.

    I would question about how financially stable Penthouse is. I seem to remember there were questions about that last year and reports of late payments. You wonder if they are being affected by the internet.

    And then . . . there are things you might be able to overlook, you know, for the chance to shape editorial direction and such.
