In a unique protest over the plentiful potholes on Highway 32 in Leader, Saskatchewan, the farming community's residents decided to take it all off for a fundraising calendar.
The “2007 Highway 32 Pothole Calendar” features a dozen citizens posed in and near the nastiest potholes on the Canadian roadway. Each model is wearing little more than a smile, although their private areas are creatively blocked by hubcaps, cameras, and other items.
Their efforts are getting worldwide attention and scores of orders for Highway 32 calendars, bumper stickers, DVDs, and other collectibles (proceeds benefit the local Lions Club).
“The potholes are not small,” says Wayne Elhard, local member of the province's legislature. “Sometimes they're as deep as a foot, and sometimes they stretch for yards.” Officials of the 1000-resident town, however, say they can't scare up funds to fix the faults—no matter how angry or naked citizens get.
