Excellent list! :) it didn't get really funny for me until about halfway through, and then the accumulating absurdity of the people listed had me laughing on the train. (PS: not a diehard BC fangirl, but I do enjoy watching him act)
All I saw was "Jeremy Brett" and I dissolved into a puddle of happy.
If this is the official position of The Hairpin, I can no longer consider myself a 'Pinner. *tearfully plucks bobby pin from hair, tosses it on table, plods off Charlie Brown style*
@Chloe 'Pidge' Spirals@facebook Totally! No one dismisses the hotness of BC, least of all my FORMERLY FAVORITE blog, which I THOUGHT was composed of ladies and all sorts who I THOUGHT knew how to appreciate the unconventional! *rages* *seethes* *unsubscribes* lol.
A pox upon your very souls and a gypsy curse upon ye.
Hairpin, you are dead to me. You are more than dead to me, you are BALEETED from my bookmarks and unliked on Facebook. Yes you heard.

One of the commenters on this week's Ask a Queer Chick (re: LW4 and painful intercourse) prompted me to make an appointment with my gynecologist and as it turns out I probably have an ovarian cyst! The bad news is that I have to do a bunch of tests, but the good news is that this completely random hairpin post and comment prompted me to take care of a potential medical issue before it becomes a big problem.
This might be my least favorite Hairpin ever. Not because I find Benedict Cumberbatch hot (I started off viewing him as a weird, icy alien and now find him disarmingly attractive with a smoky voice), but because this piece is devoid of charm or humor. It's just an overly long, largely inaccurate list. Seriously, Prince Charles? ALF? Soda and toilet cleaner? LeFou? RUDE.
I don't think that Benedict is the Hottest of Them All, but please, there are thousands of famous men who are considered hot because of personality, talent, voice, etc. aside from their physical makeup and I don't see why he's singled out as the most repulsive.
@Bittersweet John Mayer is anti-hot. Like when I think of him it usually ends in "ugggggggghhh, well I should just join a nunnery because all men are skeevy letches who date a way too young T. Swift and sing awful, awful song. Must ablute away all traces of humanity and sew myself in a hairshirt so that I never have to think about the possibility of body being a wonderland."
Nah, the guy who delivered me was, by all accounts, an unpleasant asshole, so by definition he can't be hot.
And John Mayer isn't hotter than anybody, including Bandersnatch Cumberbund.
