Ouch: Nudie calendar proves less ‘fruitful’ than imagined

17Apr08

Those of you looking for a way to kill two proverbial birds with one stone are about to stumble onto greatness: Seven middle-aged Spanish moms who posed for a tongue-in-cheek erotic calendar — a fundraiser for their children’s tiny, rural school — are now saddled with debt and 5,000 unwanted copies, Fox News reported. Get your naked fix and contribute to a good cause, people!

Who cares if the calendar’s out of date? With shots of mothers wearing tinsel instead of clothes, a “shotgun-toting mom wearing only a fox pelt kneeling on a table”; and more, how can you go wrong?

The calendar was released in November and its popularity started out big; then, everything fell through. The women, new to distribution, publishing and advertising, totally missed the Christmas “rush”; and with sales at a stand-still (the calendar is only $8, people!), the women owe a printer about $16,000.

“The sad part for us is figuring out what to do with them because it is not something you can recycle,” said Rosa Garin, 36, one of the models in Serradilla del Arroyo, a village of 400 people in northern Salamanca province.

The town’s elementary school has one classroom and one teacher handling seven students who span four grades. Village matrons decided to build a recreation center for the kids; the goal being to offset government neglect of rural communities. The calendar was intended to pay for the center.

Note to women of Serradilla del Arroyo: Get Dame Judi Dench to pose for next year’s calendar. Guaranteed to sell like hot cakes.
