This morning Squawk Box hosted a visitor from Barron's to talk about their story naming Playboy as a possible LBO target. (Just imagine the way that meeting would go down at, say, a place like Blackstone.) One question that came up was whether the company will be viable after the aging founder, Hugh Hefner, shuffles off his mortal coil. The Barron's guest responded.

"Look. The guy is still listed as Editor-in-Chief, and is apparently still very hands-on.”

Cue Joe Kernen’s off-camera Beavis-and-Butthead gaffawing. Which brings us with a very, very important question: how does that man's mind get so dirty so early in the morning?
