Danae Mines has just become the first female firefighter to appear in FDNY’s Calendar of Heroes. A Bronx firefighter for 11 years, she was initially refused a place in the annual fundraising beefcake calendar.

“I wasn’t going to let anyone tell me I couldn’t do what I wanted to do,” Danae said. “I was determined. I wanted my picture in the calendar so that young girls and young women can see me and know that they can do this job.”

Fanart: Tony the tiger

Ohhh man, have I always wanted to take a shot at this guy.

Not only is his cereal tasty as heck, but he’s probably one of the only cereal mascots that go out of their way to be beefcake rolemodels for little kids on TV by promoting sugary cereal. Eh, it works, right?

Anywho, sexpizza started this Tony The Tiger hype, and I couldn’t help but give it a try and draw him myself! Even colored it. Who’da thought?

Not the best physique in the world but I started working out again and I feel good about it. Sometimes ya just feel good ya know?!
