Monkey business with SurveyMonkey

In a breaking news story today, President Barack Obama has been named the world's most stylish man. He beat out Brad Pitt, who came in second. A survey of 3,000 men put the 47-year-old president at the top of the list. Soccer star David Beckam came in third, followed by James Bond star, Daniel Craig was voted fourth.

Please tell me as you are reading this, your jaw is dropping to the ground and your forehead is developing numerous creases. Thank you. Why can't we just say it like it is? He's a very able and articulate president with intelligence galore and a great family. That is seriously a LOT of qualities/ achievements to have in your kitty. Why then, in addition to all that, does he have to be a style icon and superman and ha-ha funny with the best bikini body (oops that doesn't apply here) and everything else? Just coz we like him so much? Isn't that being unfair to the real style icons and the real superman (ok there is no real superman but still) and the real funny guys who get knocked off the list when this guy gets pulled up?

FHM Magazine released its list of the sexiest women in the world a while back where Ms. Freida Pinto ranked 10th. Also, she showed up as a member of People Magazine’s 'Most Beautiful 2009' list. I love her, really, but one of the most beautiful in the world? published their desired celebrity neighbor survey which revealed that U.S. adults would most like to be neighbors with Sarah Palin. Any doubts only retirees, southerners and perhaps men who love dumb women were the only ones who took this survey?

Are we redefining these parameters? I never got a memo about it. I'm going to go with a different theory. Most of us prolly don't even read those surveys before filling them out in a jiffy while multitasking.

Read the survey questions people. I don't wanna see Joe Biden as the guy most teenage girls have a crush on :)
