Yeah, you come here every day and laugh your ass off. I know, I know. But some of our Loyal Readers have been questioning the scope of The Lucky Puppy. Yeah, we blast Obama on a regular basis, but doesn’t everyone? We have tons and tons of post about ODD FACTS and some of them have been used in thesis (WTF is the plural of thesis?) and essays (yeah that’s a better word) at CAMBRIDGE. Yeah that Cambridge. But in the end do duck quacks really echo? Who cares?
On a daily basis, we Voyage to the Bottom of the Internet to find stuff that we think you should know about. And what do we get for that?
Not even a “Fuck off, you’re stupid” COMMENT!
So here’s a video we found that is VERY INFORMATIVE.
Faced with financial problems, the town of Montserrat, Spain cut the school bus route. Finding the situation unacceptable, the Montserrat Moms take things in their own hands to raise funds to restore the school bus route for their kiddies.
They banded together to do the reasonable thing and publish a nude calendar. No JOKE.
Our tireless staff here at the Lucky Puppy have searched the world wide web to find these ladies.
Many posed along the six kilometer route their children have to take now that the bus doesn’t pick them up.
Some brought their kids along for the photo shoot. Apparently, quality child care is hard to come by in Monserrat.
Some posed “tastefully topless”. You know you can click these pics for a closer look, right?
Others struck the classic Cougar pose in less stressful locations.
This Mom went all Arstsy Fartsy with a cute prop. Maybe a plea for missing school supplies.
This Mom takes one for the Team. Yeah, this is a true story.
Here is a page from the actual calendar. Have you subscribed to my blog yet. Over at the right. Near the top. Click,click,click.
Another shot along the route. Did we mention it’s through (or maybe around) a QUARRY!!
If anyone is still counting, Miss November makes it nine so far.
NEWS FLASH: These chicks live in the village of Serradilla del Arroyo. A quaint village of about 400 folks. Hence the six klick hike to the school.
The photos came out as calendars in November and at first proved to be a big hit. But the plan backfired.
Pretty festive. My guess this is December.
So here’s the kicker. Good intentions aside, the Moms were weren’t exactly publishing moguls. The ring leader was Itziar Zamarreno, a 40-year-old town councilor. She’s Mrs October with the shotgun and furs.Their goal was to offset what they call government neglect of rural communities.“Nobody remembers the villages. Everybody comes and says, ‘Wow, this is so pretty, what lovely countryside, you live so well here,’ but then they don’t help you at all. They give you absolutely nothing,”- Itziar Zamarreno.
But…(BIG BUT)….the novices published the calendar in November. Sales were strong at first but then tapered off. They completely missed the Christmas buying season. To add insult to injury, they didn’t charge enough and still owe their printer some 16 Grand, American. This whole story came to light when he complained about them making late payments.
