Celebrate 2009 with Chubby Mikey

Chubby Mikey is so proud of his body that he has posed for a calender and the financial consultant is selling them on his website. It isn't his weight that bothers me, but his need to create a nude calendar of himself.

Chubby Mikey, as he calls himself, has posted pictures of a number of the months in his nude calendar. I can't figure out if he's joking or not--surely he has to be, right?

Implications - Let's face it: posing nude for calendars is one of the oldest tricks in the book when it comes to fundraising. Nothing is more novel than a bunch of regular people stripping down like they belong on the pages of Playboy, and these chubby competitors are no different.
