Top Ten Bizarre and Unusual 2009 Calendars

Updated on January 1, 2009

What better way to start the New Year than with something a little different? Something unusual. Something downright freaky. Here's a little selection of 2009 calendars for the "individual".

The Bubble-wrap Calendar

Ah, how we all love the stress-reducing bubble-popping fun of this funky packaging. Now you can have your very own calendar with one to pop each day! The only problem I can see here is trying to resist doing the whole month or more in one go...

Guns and Camo

For the macho man, here's a better option than merely having large-chested women on your wall: large-chested women with guns! The site also offers two other eclectic calendars - Women in Waders and Women in Chaps. Go on, treat yourself to some chewing tobacco while you're at it.

Butlers in the Buff

For the ladies with a desire to be waited on hand and foot, here's this year's offering from the... unique... personal services company. Apparently men wearing aprons can be considered sexy. My guess is that it's not the apron that does it, though - it's the bow-tie, right?

Mormon Men

One for the ladies with a more religious inclination: Mormon men strutting their evangelical six-packs to help you save your soul. I assume that personal belief and a halo are optional, and I don't want to know what you're going to do with the latter if you do have one, thank you!

Who Started This One?

Probably the strangest combination of subjects I've ever seen in a calendar: men who work in mortuaries showing off their bodies. Whatever happened to the good old-fashioned undertaker, tall and skinny, pale white skin with a crooked nose and long, skeletal fingers? Apparently he was replaced by Arnie derivatives. No sign of a 2009 issue yet, but stay tuned!

Morticia's Moment

Enough male flesh for the moment. How about something a little more Addams Family? Something to make you wonder whether you should really be thinking the thoughts inspired by this rather splendid calendar by an Italian coffin manufacturer? Bring out the inner Goth. Be a devil, treat yourself.

HM Prisons

From the man who brought us an entire book about the best roundabouts in Britain comes this offering. He gets around the country a lot, so he took photos of Her Majesty's Prisons... and made a calendar. Twelve ways to get depressed - or at least be grateful for your freedom!

Car Freaks

OK, so I can understand people liking pictures of fast cars. Sleek curves, dramatic camera angles, loud colours and compensation for their lack of endowment in other areas have always been an attraction for many men. What I understand less is why someone would want Haynes manual pictures on their wall. Now that's serious geekage.

Lordy, that's a big one!

Feeling cheap? Can't be bothered to remember to buy a calendar every year, but don't want some stupid-looking techno-gadget that does it all automatically? Well, this is for you. Get that olde worlde paper calendar style without losing the advantages of an ongoing, twenty-year calendar. Vunderbar!

Wonders Of Modern Technology

And to finish with, here's the latest calendar from Patscan - the 2009 Bizarre Patents calendar. This one's brilliant and the link will take you straight to a downloadable PDF. It's even free. Can't do better than that, eh?

Happy New Year!
