They're back: The coffin-punting naked Polish calendar girls

Ashes to ashes, bust to bust

Gartner critical capabilities for enterprise endpoint backup

NSFW Polish coffin maker Lindner is continuing its proud tradition of provocatively punting its wares with a 2014 calendar (NSFW) featuring bare naked ladies and plenty of wood.

The company's latest effort is slightly less off-the-wall than the 2013 calendar (also NFSW, natch), which featured a striking Miss March complete with albino Burmese python and Golden Delicious.

The Catholic Church has yet to pronounce on the 2014 product, having previously condemned such tomfoolery as "inappropriate". A spokesman declared last year that "human death should be treated with solemnity and not mixed up with sex".

Lindner head honcho Zbigniew Lindner defended: "My son had the idea of creating the company's calendar... so that we could show something half-serious, colourful, beautiful: the beauty of Polish girls and the beauty of our coffins.

"We wanted to show that a coffin isn't a religious symbol. It's a product. Why are people afraid of coffins and not of business suits, cosmetics or jewellery?"

The 2014 calandar is available here for 30zł (£5.90, $9.70). As ever, all profits go to the "Ptaszarnia" project - "aimed at children and young people with difficult or limited access to culture [which] is a form of equalizing educational opportunities". ®
