The women of Tiger Time Lawn Care offer to mow customers’ lawns dressed in bikinis…

A click here will get you through to a story and video.  Thanks to Michael for the pointer.

What is really remarkable is not that there’s a lawn care company which uses women in bikinis, but that there’s a lawn care company which is not comprised entirely of Latin American immigrants 🙂

It reminded me of the Seinfeld episode where there is good naked & bad naked.

In one small town near where I grew up, there was a gas station where ALL of the gas-jockeys (at least in summer) were attractive 18-21 year old women.
There was pretty much always a lineup for gas.
Of course, casual observation didn’t reveal whether this was a strategy, or whether the owner of the station happened to have several attractive daughters.

I used to see hot dog vending carts run by women
in bikinis. I’m surprised that more of this sort of thing
doesn’t occur. It’s not really that different from
how pharmaceutical companies hire good-looking women, and men,
to go to doctors’ offices to promote their products.
Of course, since those people are professionally dressed,
it’s socially acceptable.

Ahh, Fox News — Fair & Balanced (and sexy!)
