Oh, Maxim. You’re so funny and clever! Burn city! Population: Manti Te’o! LOLZ.
Why would Maxim give a spot to an actual beautiful woman on their 100 Hottest Women of 2013 list, when they can give it to Teo’s fake dead girlfriend, Lennay Kekua? “Manti Te’o’s Fake Girlfriend” – her bio reads:
After Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend hoax of 2012, we think it might be nice to have an invisible girl of our own to love. Why not? She’s got a ton of great qualities, including looking awesome in a bikini.
ZOMG! This is hilarious!!!!! Guess what spot they gave Lennay on the list? Just guess. Ready for it? 69!!!!! SIXTY-NINE!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Maxim mag! You kill me!!
Maxim magazine is run by morons. I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with Maxim personally. I had posted a bunch of photos of Ryan Tannehill’s hot wife, Lauren Tannehill, and Maxim didn’t like that. They proceeded to threaten me in a series of emails from their Director of Photography at Maxim Magazine. (a great read if you like condescension and snark) So, after this experience, it’s no surprise to me that Maxim used their pea brains to take a shot at Manti with a tired, tired joke. Apparently, Maxim is still living in this world: Manti Te’o Fake Dead Girlfriend Jokes are HYSTERICAL. It’s sad, really.
It’s already created a local buzz… Matt Hall over at U-T San Diego rounded up a bunch of quotes/tweets in reaction to Maxim’s idiocy. Listen, I appreciate a good joke. But c’mon… at least try. This is so easy, so old. I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again… it was funny back when it happened, kinda, but it’s not now. It’s the antithesis of clever. So knock it off. Until morons get over what they think is funny, there’s only one thing the rest can do…
