Snowboards with naked Playboy models cause outrage in Vermont!

Burton is marketing a new line of snowboards featuring naked models, apparently from old copies of Playboy. And, a confidential source informs this reporter that at least one of them is from many years ago. Needless to say, this shocking objectification has caused outrage, and this site stands in solidarity with the liberals in Vermont who are calling for them to be driven off store shelves and legislation put in place to end the hate! However, purely as a public service, this reporter notes that - while they appear to be too hot for Amazon - you might be able to buy them through this search at eBay.

Our comrades at the Boston Globe report (link) the shock:

"When you really think about it, it's a young man standing on top of a naked woman's body," said [Nicole Zarrillo], 38, an office manager for a nonprofit based in Burlington, also home to Burton's headquarters. "I probably could have gotten past it, because I try to have an open mind, but seeing it like that, it's offensive."

Thankfully, help is on the way:

Carmel Quinn, who directs the Girl Scout Council of Vermont teen program, said she is talking to the group's teenage members about bringing the issue to lawmakers when the Vermont legislative session resumes this month.
