• Babytalk magazine has sparked outrage among women with its latest cover (pictured above). “There’s a huge Puritanical streak in Americans … and there’s a squeamishness about seeing a body part — even part of a body part,” said the magazine’s editor. “It’s not like women are whipping them out with tassels on them! Mostly, they are trying to be discreet.” Not sure why folks are so upset. The typical magazine rack (pun intended) displays much worse — and we’re talking about women’s magazines, not Playboy and Juggs.
• The President of Iran ordered governmental and cultural agencies to stop using foreign words like “pizza” and “chat” — replacing them with “elastic loaves” and “short talk.” Somebody needs to send the president a subscription to Babytalk magazine.
