Thoughts On The Dead

Musings on the Most Ridiculous Band I Can't Stop Listening To

Upcoming Reactions To Hugh Hefner’s Death

  • Thinkpiece about how Hef was actually the first feminist.
  • Tweet from the President of the United States that contains the phrase “Magazine went downhill when the girls lost the bush!”
  • Announcement of a motion picture/Netflix series based on Hef’s life.
  • Hot Take re: Hef and race. (This one will almost certainly have a point. Not a lot of titties of color in Playboy.)
  • Medium essay that starts off shaky, derails by the second paragraph, and has the entire internet yelling at the author by the third.
  • If Barbie Benton is still alive, then you’re gonna be hearing from Barbie Benton this week.
  • I cannot fucking tell you how many times we’ll all be subjected to variations on the “just read it for the articles” joke.
  • Or the “Hef’s will folded out like the centerfold” bit.
  • Not gonna lie: there will be quite a bit of memorial masturbation in the next couple days; guys’ll toss one off for Hef, because guys are disgusting.
  • Oh, fuck, Jenny McCarthy’s going to involve herself, isn’t she?
  • The following listicles:
    • “31 Hottest Playboy Playmates,” Bleacher Report.
    • “31 Times Women Fought The Patriarchy By Getting Buck Naked,” Buzzfeed.
    • “Top Ten Playboy Interviews You Won’t Read Because They’re 100,000 Words Long,” Longform.
    • “Six Playmates That Went On To Hijack Airplanes,” Thoughts on the Dead.
  • Somebody’s going to post scans of Little Annie Fannnie, and that motherfucker’s getting fired; leave Little Annie Fannie in the Problem Attic.
