Unconfirmed Sources report Playboy will soon start a new magazine directed at arab men. " Ji-Hotties" will hit the Arab street in just a few days. Our sources indicate the White House pressured the publisher to start the venture to help "bridge the gap between American and Arab men."
The new magazine Ji-Hotties will be modelled after the wildly successful Playboy formula. It will have feature articles, interviews and of course lots and lots of Arab women.
"It's about time someone served this audience." said a Playboy publicist. "There are magazines that cater to every taste and demographic, we thought it was time to give arab men what we know they want. Were we encouraged by the government to start this venture? Did they threaten to send John Ashcroft after us? Sure, but when an idea this good comes along you just do it. You don't need encouragement from a regulating body. You just do it."
Government officials confirmed the idea for the magazine came out of the White House. The thinking goes that Arab men hate Americans because they don't know them. So the plan is to give Arab men what American men enjoy and this will build a bond between them. One staffer summed it up this way. "We like chicks....they like chicks, so why don't we stop shooting at each other and look at chicks."
Experts on Arab culture from the Pentagon and CIA agree the plan is brilliant and is sure to work. They even went so far as to call the idea a "Slam dunk."
Playboy Publishing's has taken a major risk with the new venture and is glad the government has agreed to distribute the magazine at no charge to all corners of the arab world. With the American government behind the venture massive distribution and wide spread acceptance is assured. After the magazine becomes a success the government plans to phase out its subsidy.
In addition to the magazine a web site and cable channel are being planned.
