Anorexia: The Next Frontier for Satire! is graced with slick aqua-colored accents, lots of sexy people in crisp white outfits, and helpful tourist information on hotels, restaurants, and clubs. It all looks pretty good -- until you scroll down to the article titled "The Anorexic's Guide to South Beach." The article, written by Casey Gillespie, claims to be "tounge-in-cheek."

Here's an excerpt:

No anorexic vacation would be complete without a fitness go-to guide. It is South Beach and being skinny isn’t enough—you must be toned and defined as well. Luckily, SoBe is chock full of places to exercise. Grab a day pass at Equinox (520 Collins Avenue) for a calorie-burning spinning or power yoga classes. Miami Fitness Bootcamp is also an incredible way to run, jump, climb and sweat yourself a size smaller.

Gosh, why stop there? Why didn't post some photos of an emaciated Nicole Richie, or maybe some links to a few pro-ana websites?
