Novelty Treats: It's Sort of Like the Movie Calendar Girls...

...but with jackhammers and a lot of tongue.

Your grandma is getting suggestive with a power tool. But, you know, don't worry, it's all for a good cause.   A pack of admirably gutsy middle aged and senior women pulled on their hot pants and eschewed all modesty to reenact the music video to Benny Benassi's "Satisfaction" for Equal Pay Day (April 12).  The point?  Women still have to work longer into their lives just to earn the same amount as the average man.  It's pretty great, actually, and I tip my hat to these ladies.  Good for you, Monique!  Good for you...

EDIT:  On a similar note, Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench are also in the PSA game for International Women's Day.  Granted, the video isn't as fun as the last one, but you do get to see 007 in a dress.  All in all, it's a clever concept, and I applaud them for using a character generally considered misogynist (though I love him anyhow...) for such an awesome reappropriation.
