Revealed: Amy Poehler's Scandalous Nurse-Modeling Past

Oh, Amy Poehler, how we love you. We love how you started UCB, and still even stop in occasionally on Sunday nights to give the comedy nerds a thrill. We love how you killed on SNL and Arrested Development. We loved you in Mean Girls and Baby Daddy. We love your decision to mate with Will Arnett, presumably to populate the world with abnormally funny babies. We love that Park and Recreation finally (FINALLY) came back last night. But more than anything, we love these hilarious modeling photos that blogger Franny Glass found on Getty Images. Everyone has skeletons in their closet; Amy’s is her gig modeling as a sunny, flower-and-card-bearing candy striper.


Of course, the first thing we thought of when we saw these photos was this:



And, because Tina Fey is a comic genius and wonderfully self-deprecating, that moment of belated embarrassment was spun into comedy gold, via this ad that she worked up for a subsequent episode of 30 Rock:



Which begs the question: what will the inevitable parody of these pictures be? Can we look forward to the disclosure of Leslie Knope’s teen modeling career? Or maybe something more recent—some sexy snaps she took for Mark Brendanawicz? (The mind boggles.)

More importantly, for those of us harboring Amy Poehler crushes: Did she do any other,/ ahem, modeling in her youth? (The eyebrow arches.)

This post was written for, but not posted on, Flavorwire. They probably made the right call.
