In the cut-throat world of naked old lady calendars, it’s really the luck of the draw — or not being old/attractive enough for anyone to want one.
Citing the success of a group of British women, who “made more than a million pounds and worldwide headlines when they came up with the idea of a discreet nude calendar for 2000 to raise money for leukemia research.
Their story was made into a hit movie, Calendar Girls; a group of middle age women from Spain did the same, and are now $16,000 in debt.
From the AP/MSNBC.com article:
Seven middle-aged Spanish mothers who posed for a tongue-in-cheek nude calendar — a fundraiser for their children’s tiny, rural school — are now saddled with debt and 5,000 unwanted copies.
One of the photos shows the mothers with Christmas tinsel as their only garb — no private parts on view. Other goofy poses include a shotgun-toting mother wearing only a fox pelt and kneeling on a table, and another shows a woman covering her body with a red umbrella on a picnic table.
Five thousand unwanted copies, huh? Well, since they aren’t recyclable, I’d say just stand outside an AARP convention, and call it a day.
If that doesn’t work, look on the bright side: You use the euro, and there are seven of you.
