hold on a damn minute! i just discovered something more disturbing than burt's surgery: the picture of burt itself.

view the original photo, as it was printed as the centerfold of cosmopolitan magazine:

now, go look at the last post, the same photo, as used in a DIRECTV ad. the cigarette and ashtray have been digitally removed.

are you SERIOUS? our society thinks cigarettes are more suggestive than a photo of naked burt reynolds in all his hairy glory, not to mention a murdered-bear rug?

don't buy directv. at least, not unless they have a burt reynolds channel.
