Surfer’s Paradise Meter Maid
Gold Coast, Australia
Introduced in 1965 to put a sexy spin on the town's dreaded new parking meters, these gold bikini-clad beauties did the opposite of the usually grumpy old meter maid, and inserted coins into expired meters. Today, since those the meters are all electronic, they mostly just pose for pictures and give directions.
Gender Equality Consultant
Sweden, unlike Australia apparently, is one of the most gender-egalitarian countries in the world, and, naturally, employs gender equality consultants at local daycare centers. What does a gender equality consultant actually do, you ask? Wears a gold bikini and... just kidding. They ensure that stereotypical gender norms aren’t enforced, of course. We have no idea what that means.
