Hugh Hefner, the founder of Playboy Magazine and hero to millions of teenage boys the world over, has died at the age of 91.
I knew something was wrong when my morning wood was at half-mast.
Hefner was born on April 9, 1926 in Chicago, Illinois, and went on to become a millionaire after founding the influential men’s magazine in 1953. Hefner’s death was confirmed in a statement from Playboy Enterprises that said he ‘passed away today from natural causes at The Playboy Mansion, surrounded by loved ones.’
Hef was also surrounded by Viagra, Gatorade, and Astro-glide.
Hefner’s son, Cooper Hefner, who is also the chief creative officer of Playboy Enterprises, said: ‘My father lived an exceptional alife as a media and cultural pioneer and a leading voice behind some of the most significant social and cultural movements of our time in advocating free speech, civil rights and sexual freedom.
Yes he did, right up until that unfortunate Rhea Perlman pictorial. Rest in peace, Hef. As my cousin said to me this morning, there is no way you went to a better place.
