To Reach or To Retch: That Is the Question

Jack could not have summed it up any better: will people reach for Restless Style when given the opportunity, or will they retch? Our prediction? Most likely both, reaching first, and then retching after viewing. We agree that it was a good "business" move to give Lily the boot and to go with an actual model for the cover. It's probably the best business move they've made since, well, ever. Not that hiring Amber wasn't, or Phyllis' son, Daniel, a porn addict and former felon to work as a photographer, or calling in Kathy Hilton to provide advice for their first issue... although, we do think Snoop Dog would have been a much better choice. (Yes, we are still bitter that he made an appearance on One Life to Live. And who does Y&R get? Kathy Hilton. Gawd).

Newest Drinking Game.
To continue in our series of drinking games for Y&R, not only has Sabrina inspired a renewed interest in Viagra for Victor, she has inspired a new way for us to ease the pain of watching their relationship blossom. Every time she says "mon cheri/mon amour" (or a variation thereof) to her octogenarian lover, take a drink. God knows, we all need one after having to endure him eat her face like a cat slurping up canned food from a bowl.

Line of the Week.
Surprisingly it came from David-I-have-zero-personality-and-the-most-interesting-thing -about-me-is-that-have-a-gambling-problem-Chow, when he and Nicki arrive in Mexico to get married only to discover that the villa advertised in the pamphlet wasn't anything like the place in reality. And thus David's query:

"What's Spanish for "you've been punked?"

Come to think of it, it is rather apropos that David quote Ashton Kutcher, as Nicki and David are a little bit like Demi and Ashton themselves (in terms of age difference and the women both having F***ed up children).

Keep it up David, and you may redeem yourself to us yet.

Nicki And the Unwashed Masses.
Sounds like a punk band? Perhaps. But this week Nicki Newman was nothing short of traumatized as she was forced to rub shoulders with the aforementioned masses, in economy class no less! Those wacky poor people! When will they ever learn? But so entertaining! Take for example the woman who insisted she sit between Nicki and David. Not only was she completely mentally ill, but she also brought her meowing cat on board with her! She then fell asleep on Nicki's shoulder and snored something fierce! Where in the world would we be without those affable yet offensive plebes! Bravo! What a story for Nicki to tell the other Genoa City's Finest (GCF) at the Athletic Club!

Questions of the week.
1. Seeing Nicki open up to the possibilities of economy class, it got us thinking of other forms of public transportation. Is there a Genoa City Public Transit Authority (GCPTA)? If so, has anyone ever taken it? Is it possible to take a bus out to the Chancellor Estate for example? How about out to the Genoa City University? A direct connection to the Tack(y) house? If Genoa City's Finest (GCF) are so concerned with going "green" as both Jabot and Newman would have us believe with their green product lines, then maybe they should get out of their SUVs and take the bus. We would pay good money to see Mrs. C or Victor riding the bus. Again, to think of what crazy and "entertaining" people they could discover as they are forced to rub shoulders with Genoa City's Worst (GCW).
2. What kind of stepmother will Sabrina be to Adam, Victoria and Nick? Is she prepared to be Abby's step-grandmother as well?
