Nineteen years in a row I'd predicted the Playboy Playmate of the Year, and nineteen years in a row my prediction was wrong.
As always, I post my selection in early January, and as usual, the PMOY is announced in the June issue. Did I bring my batting average up to a slightly less embarrassing .050 this year?

Wow, what a statistical oddity.
I wouldn't recommend playing the lottery either.
Were this purely random, the odds would be indeed implausible. I think it's more likely that Hef's particular, um, tastes are about 120 (surely not 180) degrees away from mine.
Of course, what I really hope for is that I can parlay this blatant display of ineptitude into a crash course to be administered by the master.
(Yeah, I know: fat chance.)
It could very well be that his choices are a bit less subjective and have more to do with things the rest of us can not "see", though practically nothing is left to the imagination.
Certainly he has access to information the rest of us don't. Whether that information comes into play, we're really not in a position to know.
Well, keep in mind what's really important: That you're out there in the trenches every month, reading Playboy for the sake of those of us whose wives won't le . . . er, who don't really have a lot of time for periodicals.
