These days, the franchise's image is obviously a bit less polished. In addition to pornographic poses by the likes of Lindsay Lohan, Playboy has become synonymous with the E! reality show, an unsuccessful NBC drama, and a slew of other not-so-flattering qualities. Back in the '60s, however, the girls had a mentor (a.k.a. the Bunny Mother), who helped them maintain their appearance and all-around perfect poise (night and day, right?). Smoking was allowed, but they were never to be seen holding a cig, and dating customers was grounds for immediate dismissal. Gum-chewing would cost you ten merit points (a system that all the gals followed), and not doing the "Bunny Dip" while on the clock would cost you five (we're not sure exactly what that entailed).
