    Apparently Maxim duped 13 other cities by distributing 13 different editions of its Best City magazine. Haha. Genius.

    *c*

    I don't think the magazine was created to be a newspaper as much as it was to be entertaining... I still prefer FHM

    most people who get their news from the internet knew this was a gag immediately. (first hint - the maxim website went down - which is the first thing ppl would check when they heard their hometown was voted number 1.)

    any mainstream paper that was fooled into publishing the story obviously does not do proper research.

    I love how Detroit's Free Press was skeptical about their #1 showing from the get go. Like who the fuck would vote Detroit #1 other than for the most scummy as city.

    I thought this was brilliant. First rate publicity.

    I was seriously wondering though when I first heard that they named TO as #1. They did a feature awhile ago on Montreal buit never TO. They also make fun of Canada all the time. I also thought they would name an American city because Maxim has jumped on the flag waving bandwagon pretty hardcore. I still wanted to believe though.

    Toronto's #1 for me.

    Dupe I am, I guess.

    When I saw the Maxim "T.O.#1" issue I bought it. I have a lot of civic pride I guess. While I've never bought a Maxim mag before I have flipped through numerous because I think they're pretty funny.

    Seeing ones city lauded above all others was enough for me to reach for my wallet. After hearing about the prank I felt a little fooled but no worries, it was a pretty sweet gag.

    And I still think Toronto is Numero Uno.

    if you've got one Maxim, you've got them all. Every mag has the same articles but different pictures of girls on t.v. or models from Brazil.


    not that I mind the models from Brazil........
