Playboy is’nt about playboy

I heard one of my friends comment about what I wrote here about Playboy Philippines. He said that Playboy Philippines is just a victim of its own international self-image. Whattaf..ck? What international self-image are you talking about?
When they sold their franchise abroad, they need to be VERY CONSCIOUS on quality. They need to SUSTAIN the imagination of their public. Hugh Hefner, as I read about him, is a suckler for anything banal yet entertaining. He should have not let his daughter run his empire. Why? Because Playboy has lost its luster, its allure compared before.
The problem of Playboy Philippines is the editing, not their ego. The Philippine edition is beneath everything Playboy. I mean, why publish a crap like this and entice us to buy when you can’t do a good job editing it or eliminating those pesky punctuation marks.
Look at the issue–the punctuation marks are here and there and everywhere! Its like a high school smut mag. Oh, sorry, describing it as a high-school smut mag is totally praise-worthy.
Playboy Philippines is a copy of an elementary coloring book, full of women, fancy cars and gadgets. Yes, it is. I compared my daughter’s coloring book with that of Playboy Philippines edition and they look exactly similar. Except, the coloring book has less grammatical and punctuation errors than Playboy’s.
