    Please, please, somebody apply for this job with a cover letter that begins: I never thought the classified ads in your magazine were true, and I never thought anything like this would happen to me, but ...

    I guarantee you get hired.

    Of course you'd get sick of it. Hot chicks, running around the office wearing practically nothing while giggling and playfully fighting with other hot chicks wearing practically nothing. How much ass does that suck?

    Company was sold a couple of years ago, after Guccione's decision to go hardcore fizzled with both readers and advertisers. Have no idea how it's doing now, but it's no longer doing hardcore pictorials.

    Axl Rose reference. Sweet!

    I know we joke about this job, but this would have to be a career killer.

    I always told people one of the magazines I'd love to end up at, besides SI, is Playboy.

    I always told people I'd love to end up at Cleveland Steamer Weekly. I wonder if it's bicoastal and they're looking for a columnist.

    It's funny, because I think Playboy would be a "destination" for a lot of mag writers -- good profile, and from what I've heard, they pay well -- and yet Penthouse, not so much.

    Had a friend who seriously considered taking a sports job there last year. Pretty sure his new gig is better for him.

    All that being said, I'm not sure it would be a career-killer. Can't think it would make it, but at least it would get you into the world of magazines, which is pretty small and tough to crack. Might be a half-way decent launchpad for a gonzo kind of guy.

    A couple years ago Rolling Stone ran a great, long piece called "The Twilight of Bob Guccione." I wasn't able to find the story online, though.

    There's the job that will almost certainly go to a white male, to even out the supposed M.H. ratio a little. :)
