Say what you want about Twitter but it’s a fantastic news and information source, albeit in 140 characters or less. Writers have taken to posting links to their articles there before any other location. It makes for some great searching and scrolling in the ole’ timeline, and in that spirit, I came across such as this gem two days ago. (via L.A. Times)
Being the upstanding citizen that I am, I forwarded on to my co-worker Ted, (@tedchovanes). Here’s what he wrote back almost immediately:
#32 Kate Beckinsale – Underated watch “Click” solid housewife material
#28 Kardashian - #28 WTF especially with the picture they picked
Shit gets real at #20 on
Salma Hayek still packin heat at her age
Beyonce looks white in that picture.
Hayden Pannetierre - overrated
Charlize Theron is the best thing since sliced bread
La times scoring diversity points with the Asians
I am a huge Stacey Keibler fan
Can disagree but can’t really argue Scarlett Johansson at #1
Notables not mentioned
1. Kate Upton – Duh? Get with the program LA times
2. Gisele – obviously
3. Eva Longoria, where you at?
*Dear Editor: Thank you for not including Khloe “The Fat” Kardashian
Go ahead, L.A. Times, get yours. Who need the Maxim Top 100?!? It’s a perfectly fine list, I mean, not having Kate Upton on there is pretty egregious. Seriously, have you seen the “Dougie” video?? (click here NOW) Oh well, so our other co-worker, Courtney (@sportincourt), was not to be outdone, and she had her own thoughts on “The List”:
My thoughts on the list—
48 –Holly Madison: With all the plastic surgery she’s had.. she bought her way onto the list
47 –Danica Patrick : I think she is kind of overrated… would she be on a list of beautiful women if she wasn’t in a male dominated sport?
45 – Leona Lewis : LOVE her
44 – Katy Perry : she’s got a tiny waist and huge boobs… of course she’s on the list
43 – Gabrielle Union: she is definitely gorgeous.. and nothing is fake (or at least doesn’t look fake)
40 –Taylor Swift: I think she is cute, in a 12 year old way.. kinda pervy for all these older men to be ogling her
37 –Blake Lively: typical hot Hollywood actress.. she is gorgeous. If you ask most guys what the perfect girl would look like.. I think most would conjure an image of her
34 –Kaley Cuoco – butterface
32 – Kate Beckinsale: stunning!
31 – Lucy Liu – fulfills your hot asian fetish
29 –Christina Ricci: No idea why she is on the list.
28 –Kim Kardashian: I’m surprised she isn’t higher.. isn’t she one of the most lust after celebs?
21 –Keira Knightly: too anorexic looking for me
17 – Natalie Portman: I love her.. not only is she beautiful, has a great body, but she is also “wicked smart”
15 – Heidi Klum: she’s also gorgeous. She seems to have it all
14 – Penelope Cruz – the hot exotic woman.. The fact that she has a strong accent, makes her hotter
13 –Hayden Panettiere: she is hot.. in the midget gymnast kind of way
12 – Eva Mendes: absolutely gorgeous.. I think the mole on her cheek makes her even more stunning. And she has a great body
8 – Charlize Theron: another classic beauty
5 – Salma Hayek: she should be on this list, but Penelope is hotter
4 – Megan Fox – the sexy badass
3 – Beyonce – she is definitely gorgeous and has a great body.. but without the hair extensions and the loads of make up, she wouldn’t crack the 100 most beautiful list
1 – Scarlett Johansson: seriously?? She is #1?? I think she has a great body, and should be on the list, but number one?? Definitely not. I don’t get what it is with her
Someone who should be on the list… Olivia Wilde
What say you, my Tumblr peeps? I mean, honestly, lists are like a**holes: everyone has one, and this is just one publication’s opinion but it certainly got us talking. And if you think this entry was just an excuse to search through and post a bunch of pics of hot chicks, well, you’re right.
Give it up for freedom.
