Playboy magazine was founded in 1953 by Hugh Heffner.

The Golden Rim Motor Inn is a real road side hotel nestled (ever notice how places are always "nestled" in mountains?) in the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia. And for $100 for a twin bed, I'd be expecting soft water and a colour TV thank you very much.
