Sizzle Query: Face/ Body Dichotomy
Every week across the globe, dozens and dozens of football games are played. And every week across the globe, hundreds of shirts are removed so that we, the discerning public, can analyze abs, six-packs and no-packs.
And as we sit, our HD screens inches away from our eyeballs, excel spreadsheets with formulas and hottie calculation software at our sides, we are consistently reminded of one of life’s great debates: the face vs body hotness dichotomy.
Micah Richards is our case in point. One of the best bods in the game, no doubt. Yet, if he had his clothes on would he inspire such greatness? We cannot say for certain as we have been blinded by this photo. But even those in our Finest Five list aren’t exempt. For example, there has been many a debate in our post comments from many of you who don’t question Cristiano Ronaldo’s botdy, but who feel the face just doesn’t match up to the rest.
When it comes to a body of Baywatch, face of Crimewatch, where do your loyalties lie, Kickettes?
Is Micah a hottie by sheer muscle tone alone? If Becks gained 60 stone and grew several sheets of body hair, but kept that chiseled jaw we all know and love, would he still be on your hit list?
These are the pressing concerns of the day, and indeed, our lives, and we suggest you consider them deeply.
