Just Say No to Swimsuit Issue

There are, it seems, subscribers who dislike Sports Illustrated's annual swimsuit issue.

And occasionally, there have been demonstrations outside the magazine's office building in Manhattan. But now the magazine is inviting subscribers to say "no thanks" to Veronica Varekova, Carolyn Murphy and other models, including the one who will be the winner of a new reality show, NBC's "Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Model Search."

The headline on a small box in two recent issues read "If You Don't Want the Swimsuit Issue." The notice provided a phone number (1-866-228-1175) for subscribers to request that the issue not be mailed to them. Those who make the request will have their subscriptions extended by one issue.

--I'm sorry, but I know no guys who would call this number.

You Said

That's just crazy talk. Isn't that why people subscribe in the first place?

I like SI, but if I want porn, there are other places I go (in theory, of course, because I've never ever seen any porn...*whistling and looking around*).

The swimsuit issue hasn't excited me since I was in the eighth grade. I don't really care if I get it or not.

I'm not sure there's any connection here, but my son turn 15 today...and my swimsuit edidtion of SI has disappeared the last two years.

Perhaps guys wouldn't call it, but I know at least one wife who would.
