Saturday Superbowl Predictions

It’s almost time for America to stop doing anything productive for a day and watch that spectacle that is the Superbowl. Just like reading Playboy magazine, I only watch the game for the advertisements.

Friday Follies, Superbowl Edition: Too Sexy For My TV?

Sophie Monk and Chiles, From PETA Website
