But she and they thought it made for a good advertising campaign.
Perhaps. She is, after all, a whole lot smarter than me.
But somehow, I think the concept can be taken too far.
Let me give you batty old women some advice. I stared for hours at the photo of Pamela Anderson. It made me hungry. I ate meat. A calendar touting the physical attributes of 80 and 90 year-old women, if I catch a glimpse of it, will incline me to drive over to Randolph County and help tear down your courthouse. Consider this advanced warning.
Bridge Club Members to Strip for Calendar
FARMLAND, Ind. (AP) -- Seven women who usually gather to play cards are planning to strip down for a calendar as part of the fight against plans to tear down Randolph County's 128-year-old courthouse.
The women ranging in age from their early 70s to older than 90 will pose nude - with strategically placed miniature replicas of the courthouse in front of them - in the fundraiser for the Save the Courthouse Fund.
"I don't know how we're going to look, but we're going to pose," 85-year-old Garnita Amburn told The Star Press of Muncie for a story Wednesday. (link)
As someone who has a bit of experience with negotiation techniques, let me respectfully suggest that you reverse course and threaten to disrobe if the county begins demolition. That will stop them in their tracks.
I'm picturing Hillary Clinton naked on the courthouse steps (see yesterday's entry, "Bad Choice of Words."). Someone kill me.
