Easily Amused

If you're standing in the checkout line at the grocery store and need to amuse yourself for a moment or two because the woman in front of you is disputing the price of an item with the cashier, or going over the receipt item by item because she's convinced she's been overcharged, or she's waited until the cashier has finished ringing up all of her purchases and only now starts digging in her purse for her checkbook--grab the March issue of Maxim magazine and turn to their photo shoot of actress Carly Craig.

On page 88, which is the left page, there's a half-page photo of Carly resting (more or less) on her side.

On page 89, which is the right page, there is a photo of her looking somewhat underdressed while wielding a ping pong paddle.

What's so amusing about that, you ask? Well, if you look at the two pages as a whole, with the photos side by side to each other...... looks like she's about to give herself a swat with the ping pong paddle! (Okay, you have to use your imagination a bit.....but it does!)

Whoever does the page layouts for Maxim is either a bit of a spanko, or just has a great sense of humor! Or maybe, as the title of this post suggests, I'm just easily amused......

Oh, that layout is so perfectly spankesque. They couldn't have planned it better if they'd been trying.

Great find.

Hermione--that was my thought, too! I wish I could have gotten the pictures to line up properfly in my post instead of being staggered like that--but you can still look at it and get the idea!
