Hugh Hefner's Hot Tub Is Tainted

Remember a couple of months ago when an outbreak of Legionnaire's disease (Legionellosis) sickened over a hundred guests at the Playboy Mansion? L.A. County public health officials have traced the sometimes deadly disease to a "whirlpool spa," according to The Los Angeles Times. Makes sense, because Legionnaire's is "transmitted from contaminated aerosols generated in hot tubs if the disinfection and maintenance program is not done rigorously." Gross.

No surprise it's nasty in there, since someone's been peeing in The Grotto anyway. Hef — Maybe it's time for a scrub down.
