Playboy Wants Laid-Off Wall Streeters to Bare All

Plus: Hefner empire's stock is dropping fast.


Headline writers are having a ball with Playboy 's announcement that it's looking to photograph current and former employees of the financial world for an upcoming credit crisis-themed feature, "Women of Wall Street."

Here are a couple of zingers:

Playboy Enterprises, a publicly traded company (stock symbol: PLA), is having financial troubles of its own, reports the Telegraph. The stock, which hit a high of $33 in May 1999, trades at just $3 today. It started the year at $9.

The magazine has played off financial headlines before, with "Women of Enron" and "Women of WorldCom," Reuters points out. But here's something I did not know: "Playboy and frequently run specials such as 'Girls of Olive Garden' and 'Women of Home Depot,' but in the past, it has garnered attention for big business news themes." I could sort of see how the Home Depot theme might play out, but Olive Garden?
