The best non-porn article on the Internet

I read the Huffington Post for the articles.

Really.

I've been reading for several years, they have great articles on US and international politics.

Really.

HuffPo, as the kids call it, was a People's Voice winner of the 2008 Webby awards in the political category.

And then I found the best non-porn article on the Internet.

Miss California Carrie Prejean's breast implants made news the past few weeks, but they are not the only enhanced pair out there.

Below is a slideshow of many famous, barely famous, and oft-flaunted chests, some confirmed implants and some just rumored to be implants, so perhaps real.

Click through and see if you know who they belong to.

Guess The Celebrity Breast Implants (PHOTOS)

In case you weren't aware, the article has PHOTOS!

I suppose this is the equivalent of a page three girl, but still.

This article doesn't discuss whether the implants were done for personal satisfaction or professional necessity, or what "professional necessity" might imply about a given profession.

The article does not discuss how these women view themselves before or after their implants.

The article certainly doesn't discuss the possible health implications.

And this isn't an article about nose jobs, it's about (pardon the pun) titillation.

Titillation on a political blog.

Yes, it's a tough economy out there, but does the HuffPo really have to present soft porn as news?
