Signal boost: Jim Hines makes a fool of himself for charity

If you remember waaaay back in January, the author Jim Hines did a feature on his blog about trying to pose like the girls on some cover art. His poses included comments like "my brother-in-law is a chiropracter, and would be making billions..." His follow up wasn't as funny, but was still cute.

As a real follow-up, Jim decided to use his powers for good. He is doing a pose-for-charity event now through the end of the year. I donated immediately. It's for a good cause, and good entertainment too. It's nice to know that some people are putting their fame to good use. Just the cost of an off-the-front-table hardback book gets him $25 closer to a throwdown with John Scalzi...
