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

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.

This Exists: X-Ray Pin-up Calendar [Pics]

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.
