Playmate gets 'genius visa' for sexy 'Frisky Friday' photo6/30/2012
Like the dollar, the notion of "genius" has been seriously devalued — to the point where simply getting naked qualifies. It seems that Canadian-born Shera Bechard, the November 2010 Playmate and former sheetmate of founder Hugh Hefner, managed to land one of those sought-after 0-1 visas the U.S. government grants to "individuals with extraordinary ability." And just what ability qualified her for a so-called genius visa? Well, she posted Playboy's first "Frisky Friday" photo on Twitter, and now women all over are tweeting sexy photos for that cause. Bechard defended her status, saying officials reward applicants with "business skills."
Should Bechard have received a 'genius visa?'
