I couldn’t resist passing along this little gem. A veterinarian named Dr. Margo Roman, who practices and advocates for the usual hodgepodge of alternative veterinary therapies, has a project called Dr. DoMore which is focused on producing DVD “documentaries” (a.k.a. one-sided propaganda films) to promote alternative veterinary medicine. As a fund raiser for this project, she has created the 2011 Dr. ShowMore Calendar. This “educational and entertaining” calendar features “au natural” photographs of holistic veterinarians demonstrating alternative procedures or approaches. Or as the cover of the calendar puts it, “Veterinarians naturally expose options.” Really, what else is there to say?
I can’t actually recommend buying the calendar, though as a novelty item it is tempting, since the proceeds fund what looks, by the preview, to be an egregious misinformation campaign. But I do have to admire the creativity and communications savvy of the folks involved. I think it’s high time we had a Sexy Skeptics Calendar, don’t you!?
**A reader has already informed me that I’m late to the party, and that a Sexy SKeptics calendar to fund Skepticon 3 already exists. Enjoy!
