We couldn’t make this stuff up if we tried. A group of ruggedly handsome — and topless — Irish farmers are challenging One Direction’s number one spot in the Christmas calendar charts this year.
The boy band usually take the top spot, but the Irish Farmers’ collection is close behind in second place, having moved up four places from last year and it is threatening to knock the world-famous band off their top spot. Irish beef never looked so good.
Achieving its highest ever position, the country and farming-themed calendar features the hunky farmers in a series of light-hearted, (did we mention they were topless?) photos from January to December.
The list was compiled by The Calendar Club after a study of sales across its 22 stores in Ireland and it said the chart is a “good popularity indicator of the year ahead.”
Does this remind anyone else of the movie “Calendar Girls?” A movie about hunky Irish farmers who decide to make calendar to save their town can’t be far behind.
