Does this mean that they kill last years winner?
According to the People Magazine which is high literature to people who take the short bus to work if-you-know-what-I-mean, Ben Affleck is this year’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” meaning that last years winner, James Bond star Pierce Brosnan, is either no longer sexy, or he will be put to sleep, much like the viewers who saw him The Tailor of Panama.
Now I have no quibble with People annointing Affleck “sexy”, yet I am appalled at their referring to him as a “actor”. Affleck is an “actor” in much the same way that Michael Bay is a “director” as opposed to a guy who films shit blowing up. But it gets worse:
Also included on the 2002 “sexiest” list are Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, gospel singer Kirk Franklin, “American Idol” judge Simon Cowell and chef Rocco DiSpirito.
Donald Rumsfeld? Could it be that there are some women in this country who find a smirky 70 year-old man who smells of Brylcreem, scotch, and bloodlust, sexy? I mean, besides Lynne Cheney and Howard Fineman?
