Back page news! Ricart supplants soft core pornish American Apparel from the back page of Alive!
Back up, back up! There was soft core porn on Alive! And I missed it. No, there wasn’t really. I’m just trying to be witty. But think about it. The American Apparel ads that appeard on the back of Alive!, for what seems like forever, were indeed soft core porn in the guise of advertising. Don’t believe me, check-out what the copyranter has to say about AA.
Anyways, this week’s issue of Alive! has replaced the nubile young girls in seductive poses (okay, porn writing is not my game) with … Fred and Lynne Ricart. Okay Columbus, your cold shower just arrived.
By the way, there’s no AA ad at all in Alive! this week. I wonder if the Dispatch, Alive!’s owner, got many complaints about the AA ads. You’ll notice that you’ll have to get The Other Paper to satisfy your strip club ad fetish.
Which brings up another question. Can an alternative weekly really be called an alternative weekly without a strip club ad?
UNRELATED UPDATE: The American Aperal blog reports about two suspicious suitcases dropped of by the AA store in Columbus. Which turned out to be a hoax. Also, someone stole the “m” in the AA sign.
