You know, there's a website where you can buy back issues of Juggs (and other pornographic magazines). The one I have is going for $100.
Well, okay. It's vintage. Probably had a pretty low print run. People tend to throw pornography away after 20 years.
But the real outrage is that they'll sell you a "digital copy" for $50. They don't have the rights to do this. All they're doing is scanning a copy. And it costs them nothing to send these out.
Then there's a link to sell them your old porn. Okay, how about I sell you a digital copy? Only $25.
Wow, it seems that Juggs ceased production in 2012. Tough to find information about this periodical online. That's crazy. It was popular. Married with Children parodied it semi-regularly with the magazine "Big Uns". Juggs was the premier big bust magazine.
But look up "Juggs magazine" today. There's nothing. Well, here's something:
Guy laments the passing of Juggs. It seems to have disappepared without any fanfare. Sad. That thing was around since 1981. Countless women appeared on it's pages. How many millions of men purchased a Juggs in their lives?
It was all for nothing. Nobody cares about the impact that this publication had on America.
Wow. I thought that I enjoyed Juggs. Then I found this guy:
He too laments the passing of Juggs and the dirth of information surrounding the event.
He talks about Gent too. Yeah, I have a couple of those. Arty covers indeed. It was just the woman's tits on every cover. Totally unlike every other publication. A real step up from Juggs, which was often just gross. This Gilmour guy from that website shares this sentiment as well.
Anyway...I don't know. There's a story here. A story that should be told. Juggs meant something.
I'll tell you else I found out no longer exists: Red Hot Dollars. They were my favourite candy. The company who makes them were bought out a few years ago and they discontinued the product.
The candy was not hot. They were raspberry-flavoured. According to Wikipedia, the name has something to do with "red hot dollar" being a phrase in the 1920s (when the candy was first released) meaning "something new and exciting".
It's all gone now, though. Jujubees too. They were made by the same company.
And you know what this giant merger company was responsible for: Lemonheads, Atomic Fireballs, and Boston Baked Beans. These are, no exaggeration, some of the shittiest candies you can buy. They're low-quality and taste bad.
Oh, Fruit Striped gum too. That doesn't surprise me. Literally the worst gum in existence. The flavour lasts, again, no exaggeration, less than five seconds.
They do Brachs as well. Absolutely disgusting caramel or something shit.
It's unbelievable. I guess cutting corners on all of your products to maximise profits paid off. They were able to buy a company, founded by a hard-working German immigrant who knew how to make good candy, and then shut down production. Eliminate production of good, high-quality candy so that you can sell your disgusting garbage.
