How ya gonna keep ’em down on the farm? Like this!

June 2, 2008

calendar-2-160.jpgBlog Guy, with food prices soaring all over the world, I’m curious about whether any country has been able to keep farming costs under control?

Yes, Switzerland has succeeded in keeping its young men and women very interested in staying on the farm, working long hours for low wages.

Their secret is a new concept called “lingerie farming,” in which farm chores are done in skimpy outfits. So far it’s been very popular, although skeptics do wonder how well it will work during high-altitude alpine winters.

Meanwhile, these attractive farmers and farmeresses have been chosen to pose for a risqué farm calendar called “Swiss Cheese!”

Pink Acres is the place to be,
Gay farming is the life for me!
Land spreadin’ out so far and wide,
Keep Castro Street, just give me that countryside.

More than enough reason to champion farming as a great work ethic and lifestyle.

Pitchforks ready children! And dig…
