Back in his "Bandit" days, no one could hold a candle to Burt. Between his rockin' 'stache and his variety of high-profile romances, Burt was a sex icon to beat all sex icons. A 1979 Burt would wipe the floor with a 2009 R.Pattz ... just sayin'. So it was to the delight of women everywhere that he graced the cover of Playgirl magazine. The Santa cap and close-up on his face should have been a warning that this was not going to be a Merry Christmas for the ladies. What came to pass in the centerfold was Burt on a bear rug with a conveniently placed arm. I would have been less disappointed with his modesty had he been tackling a live bear rather than lying on a pelt. That's the Burt I know.
