Maxim, Real Simple Wreak Havoc Upon Unsuspecting Foreigners

We may have been so fortunate as to have Wenner Media abort an upcoming celebrity title, but it seems that there's little we can do to stop the international spread of mediocre magazines. Time Inc.'s Real Simple will be launching editions in Greece, Japan, and South Africa, and Dennis Publishing crown jewel Maxim is now launching its 30th monthly kegger in India, where it will be the country's first international men's lifestyle magazine (the venture, we presume, will also indulge Felix Dennis's colonial fantasies).

Why this matters: The global proliferation of glossies means increasingly few places where you can escape. Nothing's going to ruin your exotic vacation like an exotic copy of FHM or Cosmo.
