    Somehow the stars all aligned and the hierarchy from Playboy's front office convinced notorious homebody Hugh Hefner to make a long, arduous trip to Las Vagas in order to celebrate still another birthday. Lets feel some compassion for the party planners; it must be exceedingly difficult to get an octogenarian who's idea of fun is to watch the thousandth rerun of Casablanca from the confines of a lounge chair, to get off his duff and over to The Palms hotel in Vegas where Playboy has a marketing tie-in with owner George Maloof.

    The trip couldn't have been fun. Long gone are the days of N950PB, the all-black Douglas DC-9-32 that was known as the Big Bunny. So sometime on Saturday the whole shebang including Hefner, his son Marston visiting from the planet Vulcan, and a gaggle of Playmates on the payroll to make it appear as if this whole choreographed party doesn't come-off like a wet blanket, piled on to a black shuttle van with a white bunny logo and headed down the freeway. Did I mention that most shuttle vans have a ride that resembles an Army tank going over deep potholes? According to Google it's 283 statute miles and 4 hours 42 minutes from the Holmby Hills Playboy digs to the front door of The Palms. Here is Hugh Hefner, appearing to have mysteriously aged beyond his 85 years though still bravely wearing his signature sailor hat, as he disembarks the shuttle van after a long trip across the Mojave desert: contactmusic.com

    The good folks at Playboy and The Palms must be absolute magicians. For later that night, a resuscitated Hefner was shown making believe he was actually having fun! Like 23 Skidoo...Lucky Lindy made it!!! With him was son Lurch wearing fashionable black tennie-pumpers, only about 6' 2" but towering over his diminutive 5' 6" father like an NBA power forward. Hugh Hefner is still officially listed at 5' 9" which makes one wonder what else has shrunken.

    The adoration poured on that man is one of the many things Wrong With The World™.

    He's been irrelevant since 1965. But hey... we'll all be 85 someday. Happy B-Day Hef.

    Marston does look like a half-breed Romulan.

    Come to think of it, if Marston wasn't the son of Hugh Hefner, he would have been teased, made fun of, tortured, bullied, or anything you could think of that comes to mind. Marston would have to thank his lucky stars for his connections as Mr. Hefner's son. Or maybe he is the distant lost son of Spock. Let's check his records to be sure...LOL.:biggrin1:
