More Messages: Redman in the Pink

This week's Westword music section includes a Q&A by contributor Quibian Salazar-Moreno with Redman, accompanied by the publicity photo to the right. Too bad we didn't know about the shot the Denver Post ran with the broadsheet's own article on Big Red -- an image far naughtier than typically appears in a paper that advertises itself as a family newspaper.

Granted, the Post image doesn't feature the hip-hop vet shaking hands with Mr. Happy or flying Big Bird as he's doing here. But scope out the guy on the left-hand side of the frame, who the folks in the photo department apparently didn't notice. Yeah -- the one whose head is millimeters from deep exploration of a video ho's crotch.

Muff-diving in the Post? These guys really are desperate to make their circulation rise. -- Michael Roberts
