Maxim Top 100 Most Beautiful Women 2010: This is the reason we are “Too Old” for Maxim
May 13, 2010
You just won the steak knives…well at least you have your job.
If you have never seen Glengarry Glen Ross, then you hate yourself…
The prizes are spelled out by Alec Baldwin’s character representing the wishes of the home office:
- First place is a Cadillac El Dorado.
- Second place is a set of steak knives.
- Third place is “You’re fired.”
Because who in the Hell are they (being Maxim) catering to? They clearly are not catering to men that I know. The fact that Katy Perry is on the top is criminal and deserves some sort of punishment. In my office, they (the selection committee) are clearly fired, but even if she was second, I might be able to stomach it more. But, she is number one, and that is a tantamount to aligning ideologically with the Nazis.
Here’s the Top 20 according to Maxim’s Hot 100 List:
20. Olivia Wilde
19. Bar Rafaeli
18. Christina Aguilera
17. Leighton Meester
16. Selita Ebanks
15. Amanda Bynes
14. Scarlett Johnasson
13. Amber Heard
12. Audrina Patridge
11. Eva Mendes
10. Marisa Miller
9. Kim Kardashian
8. Olivia Munn
7. Elisabetta Canalis
5. Megan Fox
4. Blake Lively
3. Zoe Saldana
2. Brooklyn Decker
1. Katy Perry
Now, I give holy hell to some of the woman on the list, (5-head Rihanna to name one…) but there are too many names that I think of before I get to Katy Perry. I am not a Kim Kardashian apologist. But, she isn’t above Katy Perry?
Here is another one that I don’t get, but illustrates why we are too old for maxim. Number four is Blake Lively. I didn’t know who she really was and I did some reading on her.
Now, I guess because I don’t watch Gossip Girl, I wouldn’t know who she is. But, where is Christina Hendricks, who we already discussed, or Zoe Saldana?
Or, Andy Roddick’s wife KILLS Katy Perry in a straight up comparative calculus.
This doesn’t even have my personal favorite in the top 20, Halle Berry
Talk amongst yourselves but with lists like this, I am glad that our tastes have matured. The hit of the day that will not be there tomorrow is the thinking that gets you caught up. The ability to see farther into the future will help you make better decisions. You know that or man AP will have tons of woman on his page that would make you feel sorry for Katy Perry having to compete against that beauty. But, I guess it is a rite of passage for a man to put away the toys of youth. With choices like the ones Maxim makes, it becomes easier with each passing day.
P.S. I haven’t even mentioned Eva Mendes, who Ronin would definitely throw up on the list higher.
