Irradiated Babes: Ms. TSA Pin-Up Calendar?

X-Ray Porn!  This was apparently a short-lived interwebs sensation in 2010, but I missed it and I bet many of you missed it too.


I know!  Smokin’ hot, right?  I mean, damn! Are you as turned on as I am right now?

Or not. I’m struck by how titillating these images are not.  There’s a seed for an excellent essay on objectification here, but I’m opting to see it as humorous.

But, all that aside, what the hell is it about? A friend sent me the following, incredulous link, which pretty much sums up my initial bemusement and curiosity.

But a search offered clarity.

Yes, this really was an actual calendar and no, the TSA was not actually involved.  It was a promotional tool for a medical equipment company.  And no actual models were harmed in the making of this calendar.

Native, Militant Westsylvanian (the first last best place), laborer, gardener, and literary hobbyist (if by literary you mean "hack"). I've had a bunch of different blogs, probably four, due to a recurring compulsion to start over. This incarnation owes to a desire to dredge up the best entries of the worst little book of hand-scrawled poems I could ever dream of writing, salvageable excerpts from fiction both in progress and long-abandoned. and a smattering of whatever the hell seems to fit at any particular moment. At first blush, I was here just to focus on old, terrible verse, but I reserve the right to include...anything. Maybe everything, certainly my love of pulp novels, growing garlic, the Pittsburgh Steelers and howling at the moon--both figuratively and, on rare occasions, literally.

Haha! Interesting calender indeed.
It’s interesting to see though, a person with no clothes: not safe for work; a person with no skin at all: safe for work. I wonder if some doctor out there really bought one just to see if he could get away with it. 😀
