nepenthean's Diaryland Dream Diary


the inspiration for playboy

hugh hefner's parents were married and planned to hold their reception around a white piano being transported by truck through the back country. (where the back country was, i cannot say.) the place settings were on the piano as it was jostled over dirt roads but miraculously did not fall off. i listened well as hef related his family history & the inspiration for his ingenious life's work. it seemed that hef's mom had allowed someone to take grainy topless pictures of her before she was married, and her husband was so upset that he took her out in a boat one sunny day and dumped her overboard. she couldn't swim, naturally, but the incident inspired her son to want to take quality pictures of naked women "so that this sort of thing would never happen again." the rest, as they say, is history.
