Nude doctors not suitable for children?
December 13, 2008 6:54 PM   Subscribe

NAKED DOCTORS? A small group of male doctors from MedRecruit, a New Zealand-based recruitment agency for MDs decided to pose for a nude calendar in aid of charity. But the charity they chose - KidsCan - saw a nude calendar as totally inappropriate to a charity dedicated to meeting the needs of children. There's a happy ending: the calendar will now be sold to support the New Zealand Prostate Foundation. Get them while they're - well - naked ... just follow the link that says You are here: Home > Naked Doctors.

Hey Doc? There's a pubic hair on my can of Pepsi Blue. [/thomas]

This is nothing to do with me - I just thought it was funny. If the mods would like to remove the price comment, please feel free!

Won't someone think of the children? Because if financially disadvantaged kids get support from a naked doctor calendar, you KNOW they're going to end up as sexual preverts or worse.

What a completely bizarre story.

Kiwis are all nuts, I think.

This could lead to doctors touching undressed children.

If I were a cleverer person, I could make a really excellent pedophile/pediatrician pun of some sort. But I am not.

Poor kids not getting money is a happy ending?

The calendar - inspired by the movie ‘Calendar Girls’ - is aimed at being a fun way of raising money for the charity The New Zealand Prostate Foundation.

Hopefully this nudity is beefcake-oriented and not um...instructional?

Remember 10 years ago, when you heard about that first naked ladies for charity calendar and everyone had a good chuckle? Then they made that movie. That was awesome.

Maybe we ought to start doing Naked Soldier and Naked Sailor and Naked Airmen calendars, to funds for disabled military members, in the USA. Oh, okay, they can wear underwear (G.I.).

What's next? Naked programmers? (((Shudder)))

Doctors are so not hot.

I think this is important. Without prostates, we wouldn't have children to cater to the needs of.

Just sayin'...

Fortunately, the bloggers aren't actually naked.

I can think of worse pictures to promote prostate health.

Fun fact: naked people's money spends just the same.
