Are they totally insane? Peer massage? It's what Jimmy would have wanted

I find that a bit creepy!
One of the really great ways to promote newspaper circulation was print the telephone directory. Everyone wanted to see their own name in the paper.
Another wheeze to massage and even hike Audit Bureau of Circulation figures was to run the annual Bonny Babies contest.
This involved getting proud mums, dads, grand ol'uns etc. to send in details, name, address, age and pictures of the mewling brat to be featured and whichever sub-editor was in the most disgrace that week was given the job of preparing a daily sheet of pictures and full details (including name, address) of the punitive Baby of the Year.
Circulation was increased quickly, cheaply and the paedo lusts of the entire distribution area slaked for yet another day.
Wrong on so many levels....
No wonder local newspapers are going down the plughole with the baby's bathwater.
Bugger it! That's a separate fetish.
Indeed. Could lead to 'misunderstandings' later on
