Listen in, listen Ian!
I think my favourite aspect of this story is the use of the word 'blue' in the headline as though it's still the 1970s? When was the last time it was used as a synonym for mucky?

I was just thinking of the word "blue" last night when I had "She Bop" in my head. I was reflecting that the meaning of the song would have perhaps been clearer if I had known what a "'blue' boy magazine" was when I was 7.

Oh, but the internet tells me it's "Blueboy Magazine" so never mind.

When used with that meaning, it always reminds me of John Shuttleworth.

I just saw a Mail story doing the same because one of the actresses from Avatar is now doing some faintly saucy scenes in The Losers. Hence, "another blue movie".
