The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

An exercise in sexism and objectification

Which, of course, is more than enough justification right there.

Matt Moore of The Blog of the Century of the Week, having discovered that nothing rolls the meter faster than dubious polls, is conducting the Second Annual Sexiest Female Blogger competition.

Last year, you may remember, I nominated Susanna Cornett for this lofty position; she is still speaking to me as of this writing, but I'm not at all certain I want to go through this sort of thing again.

What's that you say? Sexiest Male Blogger competition? Well, ganders are equal under the Sauce Laws. And the number of people who would vote for me can be counted on the fingers of no hands, so I don't really have to worry about it.

Charles, I predict that you will receive twive as many votes as I will. You know: 0 x 2 = 0

I lobbied to be a judge in the female pageant, but I think my preferred means and venue of deliberation may have hurt my chances.

Darn, I had to read that twice - I thought it was a competition for the Second-sexiest Female Blogger. Hang on, maybe that's not such a bad idea......

On the other hand, if there's a consensus choice for first (which I doubt), the fighting for second would be incredibly fierce. :)
