Playboy TV fined over explicit content

Erm, I'm sorry, but this has to be one of the best headlines ever. "Playboy TV fined over explicit content".

No, really:

Playboy TV fined over explicit content

What? Surely the whole point of Playboy, of Playboy TV, is explicit content?

British media regulator Ofcom has fined Playboy TV 22,500 pounds ($32,990) for airing sexually explicit images in breach of broadcasting rules.

It said on Thursday the free-to-air channel Playboy One had broadcast unencrypted raunchy, and what the watchdog deemed offensive, material until September 2008.

Ofcom had received five complaints relating to seven late night programs broadcast between September and December 2007.

Yes, yes, I know, everyone only ever read Playboy for the articles but seriously. What does anyone expect?

In unrelated matters I was on TV last night with an ex Playboy Playmate. Perfectly nice woman, if a little misguided on matters economic. And yes, I did have to go online to find out what she looked like deshabille.
