He was always the subject of an Internet hoax, but this time it isn't one.
Playboy founder Hugh Hefner has passed away at the age of 91
This dude was the definition of "smooth operator". Ever since I was a kid, I always thought he was some kind of God. A legend without a doubt. I mean, he basically lived in a castle ad was constantly surrounded by beautiful women..and the majority of them were naked! We could only DREAM of a life like that!
C'mon, us guys strived to find those old Playboy Magazines under our Dad's bed or in his closet. It was a rite of passage for a prepubescent male. Who could ever forget finding a Playboy for the very first time?

Even with the magazine industry declining, Hugh (and Playboy) chugged along.
Recently, the publication chose to remove the nudity from their pages in what some called a bold move.
