Topless? Bottomless? Or Just Revealing?

The New York Times this week joined the ranks of porn sites throughout the world in running a headline about a topless photo that, as Gawker pointed out, was, in fact, topped. This led to what has to be one of the more interesting Times' corrections around, in which the paper of record admitted that the piece "left the incorrect impression that she was bare breasted." [In case you haven't figured it out, 'she' is Miley 'Hannah Montana' Cyrus.] The article's current, corrected, version uses the word "revealing."

Still, this is not your grandmother's Times. A.O. Scott's review of Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay says the movie "loses credibility" by not showing "the full extent of its stars eventual participation" in a "bottomless" party. To quote the critic:

"Dudes, if the dude in 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' could put his business up on the screen, then so can you. It’s a whole new world."

Seriously, brah, you should be proud of your junk.
