Why Was Miss Banks 2007 Fired?
As a not-yet-married young man our Cliverton has a collection of calendar girls pinned up in his studio. The central spot is always reserved for the current Banks Girl, and that’s where Clive has Saskia Griffith pinned up.
None of Cliverton’s pinups are naked or even topless, and that is not just because Auntie Moses might drop by. Cliverton knows that at a certain point, pinup becomes porn. While the exact line between pinup and porn changes with the years and is entirely subjective to the viewer – the fact that there is a line is indisputable.
Auntie Moses might not like Clive’s studio, but she doesn’t say anything because all the girls are wearing at least the minimum clothing of a bathing suit and she too sees them as pinups, not porn.
Auntie Moses and Cliverton both understand that while each generation has new standards and tries to push the barriers a little bit, the central theme of the calendar girl remains… A true calendar girl must be inviting, alluring… but WHOLESOME. Without the wholesome side, the calendar girl isn’t a “calendar girl”.
Banks Brewery understands that concept too.
What happened? Well, the Nation News has the story and it has something to do with a bathtub filled with chocolate…
