The Toronto Sun’s website is never dull (remember this? And this?), but today marks the first time we’ve felt the need to shield our screen from the prying eyes of colleagues. The newspaper went the not-so-subtle route with the house ads for its annual swimsuit issue, emblazoning its homepage with photos of nubile ladies seductively holding beach balls and lowering themselves into swimming pools (for a second we thought we’d stumbled upon a Quest ad). The “Sunshine Girl Swimsuit Issue 2012” will appear in a special section in tomorrow’s paper. Alas, unlike Sports Illustrated’s annual romp in the tropics, the Sun’s version has no sunny beaches or exotic locales—it was shot at a couple of hotels and a waterpark in Niagara Falls.
