Why is this thus? What is the reason for this thusness?

3 November 2005


I was shocked to read this article in today’s Irish Times. I mean, television viewers making sense! What’s that all about? A shocking and horrifying new development if you ask me.

Those interviewed found depiction of a graphic rape scene more acceptable as part of a detective drama than in a soap opera, for example

And this belief that violence is more acceptable for adults than for children! Where did such reason come from. Won’t someone think of the children. Oh, hang on, they are. Because, and this really is an inciteful finding,

issues of violence, sex or coarse language were more acceptable for late-night broadcasting.

Since when did common sense become so rare that an example of it makes the papers?

And in a totally unrelated issue was out at the pub last night, and one of the usual discussions came up. You know the whole unemployment rate in France [1] and the fact that Irish people do enjoy using their credit cards, and getting massively into debt, because, lets face it, unless you use real hard cash then you really aren’t spending any money now are you. But that is not what I want to type about now. Oh no. A far more valuable discussion occured.

One concerning The List, you know the top five fella’s[2] that are pure sex on legs. Only I could only come up with three. Sure there were other names hovering, but they just weren’t, you know, top five material. I did have a list of five before, and while Brad Pitt and David Boreanaz are still “all that” are they still top five?

    My list of three in no particular order

  • Adam Baldwin
  • Sean Bean
  • Keifer Sutherland

So I need another two…. Vince Vaughn maybe. Suggestions?


  1. Is it really at 10% Anne?
  2. or whatever sex you are into

    And I agree with you on your comments about the article…tis shocking that common sense and television viewing would ever come together!

    Ah..see…I misread your blog and didn't catch the 'or whatever sex you are into' footnote so, despite it being hard to limit the list to 5, here's who I currently think are my female "sex on legs" in no particular order.

    Sara Evans
    Shania Twain
    Jewel Staite
    Morena Baccarin
    Scarlett Johansson

    Off the top of my head, in no particular order:

    1. Josh Holloway (Sawyer in 'Lost')
    2. Ben Browder (Crichton in 'Farscape')
    3. Hugh Jackman (Wolverine)
    4. Viggo Mortensen (as Aragorn in LOTR)
    5. Sean Bean (as Sharpe)

    Shania Twain and no Monica Belluci Carl?

    Weenie I do like Sawyer and his greasy sexiness, but he wouldn't make the list. Viggo would've but then I say him in History of Violence. Hugh Jackman – yes. Added.

    'Tis indeed. But that's no discussion for a night in the pub, young lady.
    Sex on legs, now that is suitable. No idea. Too early in the day…

    Economics is a great topic for the pub, just like politics and religion.

    But I'd agree, sex on legs discussions are much better

    I vote Viggo Mortensen all the way. Yum! Also agree with Sean Bean and Kiefer. Adam is okay I guess. I like Vince less now that he seems to have hooked up with Jennifer Aniston. And I have a weird soft spot in my heart for Zack Braff. I'm weird.

    Zach is cute, but not sexy :)

    Ah, to each his own ;)
