ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
Now available on eBay: The naked archaeologists calendar you may or may not have been waiting for.
Via Kristina Killgrove
I wish my girlfriend was that dirty.
There’s something about a naked lady scientist reclining in a hole in the ground…
This isn’t really the sort of thing I’d expect archaeologists to unearth.
I’ve seen an archaeologist naked within the past five minutes, yet I was still shocked to find out that this exists.
I don’t know if that’s your normal user id, but the first thing that second picture brings to mind is “those are my elderberries!”
If anything about me can be described as ‘normal’ then yes, it is.
You must have a better monitor than I do, though; I can’t really make out anybody’s elderberries in that picture.
I believe he meant juniper bushes. The elderberries were what your father smelt like.
Right you are!
Not something I really want to go digging through. Snap!
Does that sign say “Dump” or “Rump”?
Well, either way.
Yeah, yeah, but where’s Phil Harding?
I REALLY don’t want to see him naked. His manky hat is yucky enough!
Reminds me of a dorm neighbor (studying archaeology) in college. His short-term goals after graduation were to 1) go on a dig 2) become a “bronzed long-haired god of the desert” 3) return to grad school as a “bronzed long-haired god of the desert” so “life will be fun again”
“You call this Archaeology?” – Dr. Henry Jones, Sr.
Gee wiz…the Mayans really were right.
Thank you. Until now, I did not know I was waiting for this.
I thought that this was going to turn out to be something along the lines of archaeologists taking another look at that Mayan calendar and finding out that it actually ended in 1964 and that, instead of the Singularity, we got Beatlemania.
At the end of the day, yes, it turned out I DID need one of those calendars. Who knew? Thanks, BB, for filling an unknown void in my life! (I see archaelogists on a regular basis, and now I can never look at them the same way again…)
I’m a geologist, and an amateur photographer. Considering that a significant portion (2/3 or more) of students in geology departments (undergrad at least; closer to 50/50 for grad school) are women, I’m hoping we’ll see a naked geologists calendar soon as well but if not, perhaps I should take this up as a personal project once I start on my PhD.
