What happens when hackers take over Penthouse Australia? The Lego issue

It’s not been an easy day for the Australian version of adult mag Penthouse after it was revealed it’s a tad behind on some of its supplier payments by at least $50,000.

So Dr Mumbo is sure its owners are jumping for joy that someone took over its Twitter account rebranding it first as a gay magazine and then perhaps most brilliantly with ‘The Lego issue’, amongst many, many other tweets:

It appears the earlier article about the missing superannuation payments may have fired up the takeover:

And fortunately whoever it is hasn’t yet mocked up a cover for this idea:

These posts were mixed in amongst a lot of things which Dr Mumbo has deemed NSFW – or potentially too libellous to repost.

Although as one commenter points out does an adult magazine have a reputation to lose?
