At the checkout of my supermarket the rack containing the swimsuit edition had a piece of cardboard taped across the front so all that is visible is the title of the magazine. What is all that about? :confused

Yeah, it's a shame really. I like to look at hot biatches every now & again, but don't want to spend the money unless I can see if there's any in there, worth a damn!
