Man, people are dumb. Men and women are both dumb, though in their own ways. I could go into a litany of examples and regurgitate many a shared email, but I think Exhibit A eventually will have to be this:
MAXIM Magazine just named Lindsay Lohan the #1 Hottest Female of 2007.
I admit that I used to read Maxim, but it got so damn boring it wasn’t even worth the occasional skimpy photo. I’ve been reasonably sure they’ve just been recycling the same magazine with new photos of whatever actress, model or pseudo-celebrity they’ve decided to make famous for the month.
And berating MAXIM for almost anything is a waste of breath, ink or bandwidth. But…while I’m not enough of a liar to say that I don’t think that Lohan can look extremely hot at times – see the attached collection of pieces of evidence to this effect. But I don’t think she’s actually a very pretty girl, she’s just sexy and she’s also a MESS. Which is actually one of the reasons cited by the magazine for her popularity.
And that is just insanely sad. I mean, I get it. It’s the entire reason Paris Hilton has any popularity, because guys are pretty sure they could hit it if they could get into a club she was at. And it would be folly to list all the women on the list who are better looking than Lohan (like, for instance, almost everyone else on the list), but it’s a pretty pathetic display.
