Hustler: Laughing in the face of teen pregnancy

We suppose, to be fair, the idea of superimposing Jamie Lynn Spears' face on a promo poster for Juno is mildly diverting, but it's not as funny as Hustler seem to think:

Hustler's Editorial Director Bruce David says, "We just couldn't let this one slip by us! The pregnant 16-year-old sister of Britney Spears, it's too perfect! You can't make this stuff up!"

You can't make this stuff up? Yes you can - look:

Kevin Federline is going to have a baby with Lindsay Lohan

See? You can make this stuff up. It's very easy.

Although the general level of inventiveness at the magazine suggests that maybe they can't. This is the sort of thing they've done:
Kevin Federline, who is accredited as saying, "Even I wouldn't have fucked Jamie Lynn... unless there was some cash in it."

Yeah, she might be Britney Spears' sister, but she's still a sixteen year old girl. Is that really a fair thing to be publishing?

Ugh! He's the Editorial Director of a proper magazine, and yet he still thinks it's OK to use three exclamation marks in as many sentences? Did you cut his quote before he added 'LOL!!!!'?

Ah! I've just realised why his quote bothered me so much; It reminds me of the god-awful joke emails an old work colleague still insists on forwarding to me, which consist of the first part of a joke followed by endless blank lines to scroll through, punctuated with




"...Are you ready for this?!...




...Wait for it!!!...




....Here it comes!!!!..."


(Usually leading up to a transparent, super-racist punchline. I really should figure out how to block her address)
