Playmate Necklaces

Today is Hugh Hefner's 81st birthday. Happy birthday, Hef!

Playboy has been at the front of pop cultural consciousness this year, what with Anna Nicole Smith's death and the Girls Next Door racking up ratings. A friend who works at Playboy (on the business side, ahem!) often wears this Playmate of the Month necklace. The more I saw it, the more obsessed I became.

Like playmates, the necklace comes in flavors of the month. It makes a great birthday present, not to mention an excellent present for oneself at only $24. If you have a brain to go with your boobs, it's actually a little subversive.

Just like Playboy was - and is?
