It's not that I think stupidity should be punishable by death. I just think we should take the warning labels off of everything and let the problem take care of itself.

Need some writing
or photography done?
Holy cow! 973??
Amazing! I did a quick check tonight, and as near as I can tell, I've featured 973 Slaps on this site since the beginning!

Wow. I guess I'll have to dream up something special for the 1000th Slap. Better hurry.

Update 8/1/2007: Wow, the consensus (at least from the comments) seems to be that I should Slap myself as Slap #1000. I hate to Slap someone as perfectly silly as I in such an important spot, but I know I've been promising to do so for a while. So perhaps I'll be Slap #1000. Maybe #1001 is better?

I agree let's slap Rob for providing us with a AWESOME site....
Andy | 2011-05-09 21:51

Hey, ROB! How about slapping YOURSELF for the something special. It would be to us, you know?
Jim Dohr | 2011-05-09 21:51

I agree that Rob deserves a MAJOR SLAP for providing the rest of us with so many joyous moments.
Get your pictures ready, Rob. You are our celebration for slap number 1000!
James | 2011-05-09 21:51

Rob, it sure sounds like you need to slap yourself (I'm sure you've slapped privately before, now it's time to share). Thanks for all your work on this site -- it give me a smile every day.

Slap! - Mark Wahlberg
Nearly two years ago I Slapped Mark Wahlberg for the first time, but I have to confess that I should have waited. Because earlier this year he starred as Bob Lee Swagger in Shooter. I only caught the movie on the plane on the way back from Europe, but Marky Mark really looked fabulous in it. Too bad the movie sucked.

Anyway, as I'm sure you know Mark played a porn star in Boogie Nights, and played Captain Leo Davidson in the remake of Planet of the Apes. He didn't take off his shirt in that movie, but he still looked quite good.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like he has too much on the horizon, mostly doing Executive Producer stuff, but he looks slated to be in the upcoming The Brazilian Job.

More Mark Wahlberg

Always slappable and is aging quite well.
JK | 2011-05-09 21:51

Still one of the best and JK is right, aging quite well. You musta missed INVINCIBLE. He was hot in that one too. I'm still waiting for the porn version of MARKY MARK GETS F*CKED-A-BUNCH, or COCKSTAR, or THE CORRUPTED. There's a milliom of them, try it!
Scot | 2011-05-09 21:51

Yes, Mark is still on my top 3 list of hottest men and will probably remain there for years to come.

I loved Shooter! Saw it last weekend. Sure it's mindless, but for us get the bad guys and blow up everything in the process fans, it's a fun ride.
KD | 2011-05-09 21:51

Like most things, he's better with age. A worthy slap.

Ah, the debates...
Here's a great idea for a question for Rudy Giuliani.

Oooooooh Now that was a zinger! And no way would he be able to. 9-11 is his political cash cow.
Snarf | 2011-05-09 21:51

Actually, he accomplished a great deal more as Mayor: lowered taxes 23 times, greatly reduced crime, instituted sound fiscal policies. Don't you think that the leadership shown during and after 9-11 is a hugely desirable quality for a Pres.?
Steven | 2011-05-09 21:51

I would say he's exploited 9-11 more than anything. And yes, I'm a New Yorker who knew people in the Towers.

As a mayor, NY did need a bulldozer more than anything at the time, and he did OK in that capacity (he's a prosecutor after all) but those are definitely NOT the qualities I want in a Pres. The Pres MUST be a statesman and represent all citizens, including around the globe. He clearly can't do that.

As for our mayors, I think Bloomberg has done significantly better. Of course, this is all just opinion :-)

AfterElton's Hot 100 List
Cris and Eric were kind enough to point out to me that my favorite Jamie Bamber made AfterElton's Hot 100 list of the hottest guys around.
...we at took it upon ourselves to see what would happen if we asked gay and bisexual men — and gay and bisexual men only — to vote for their favorite fellas.
I have to confess that I'm siding with Cris in being shocked and outraged that Jamie only made it to #25. Obviously they didn't ask me...

Anyway, the whole list starts here and has quite a lovely selection of hotness on it.

Lots of hotness, but only a few are actually handsome.
Vick | 2011-05-09 21:51

Hey, Rob. I think it would be many of the 100 have you already slapped? I couldn't find anyone that you hadn't at one time or another.

Jim Dohr | 2011-05-09 21:51

I still can't get over T.R. Knight coming in at #8. Cute maybe but Hot? Really? Didn't even know 4 on the list: Sufjan Stevens, John Krasinski, Peter Saarsgard, and Jason Stratham. I want to know who voted. And where they live.
Joe in the OC | 2011-05-09 21:51

Okay, I know degree of hotness is highly subjective and I might not quibble about a place or two, but I have to question the judgment of the person or persons who put:
(i) Gale Harold even one place above Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Brad Pitt, Ian Somerhalder, and many others;
(ii) T. R. Knight above almost all of those with numbers higher than his, notably Jamie Bamber(?), Tom Welling (?!), Eddie Cibrian (!!);
(iii) Anderson Cooper and Jensen Ackles 13 and 10 places, respectively, above Paul Walker.

Slap! - Noah Danby
David wrote to suggest today's Slap, Canadian actor Noah Danby.
Stumbled across him on Painkiller Jane on the SciFi Network. H-O-T.
I have to agree that he's definitely hot, but some of the pictures make him look a bit too much like a musclehead. And it's not that I have anything against bald guys - it can be wicked hot - but I think Noah here should stick to the hair. And he shouldn't shave his chest either, for that matter...

Noah was also in the frat fest that was The Skulls, and he's had a number of guest appearances on various series over the years. Sci-fi seems to be especially fond of his work.

More Noah Danby

As is often the case, thanks to Dreamcaps for many of the pics!

Now that's a man I could do something with. Very hot!!
KD | 2011-05-09 21:51

I have to agree with chris about him being an eyesore ... If being an "eyesore" means my eyes get sore because I cant bring myself to even blink when I look at him !! Possibly the hottest man you have ever slapped !!!
David | 2011-05-09 21:51

I like David's comment to Chris. Chubby? What are you looking at? I see a defined stomach, some good muscle and a hot masculine face.
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

He sure is hot - hopefully he will turn up more often!

Hottie Harry Potter
My husband and I saw Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix last night, and I have to say it was quite good. I'm a big fan of the books, so I have to give the expected caveat that it's not nearly as good as the book, but my husband hasn't read the book and he really enjoyed it.

I also just finished book number seven. Yes, I was one of the geeky people who called UPS freaking out when my book hadn't arrived on July 21. I can't say it was the best of the seven books, but it was nice to have so many questions answered.

Oh, and as I'm sure you're aware, Harry is looking quite hot these days...

I loved the newest book, but I do agree with you about the new movie. The book was much better!!!
Chris | 2011-05-09 21:51

The film wasn't as good as the book, but pretty entertaining.

Btw, did you take a look at the really hot pics of Daniel Radcliffe in Details magazine, leather and Harry Potter go surprisingly well together...
Nicholas | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Fabian Hambuchen
Today we get a fresh supply of twink, right off the boat. Our Slap comes at the request of Nathan - and at least one other person who, as usual, I can't track down. Fabian Hambuechen is a German gymnast, about whom I can find very little - at least very little in English.

It seems he was in the 2004 Olympics, but he was the youngest German competitor, so I don't think he managed a stunning performance. I assume that since he'll be 21 next year, he'll be in the Olympics in Beijing and will do much better. Let's hope we see more of this cutie!

More Fabian Hambuchen

Looks like a fetus in the face. I don't know if I would consider him a twink with a body like that. Muscle twink maybe?
Brandon h | 2011-05-09 21:51

This slap just proves the theory that there is someone for everyone...

Slap! - Will Matthews
Carl wrote a while back to suggest that I Slap British rugger Will Matthews, and he was kind enough to follow up with some pics of this fine specimen. And all I can really say is wow!!

And I really have to point out again that if you have a suggestion that's this hot, pester me about him. Especially if there are pics out there that are this good -- I'm ashamed to admit that Carl sent along most of these pics in August. Ack! He got lost in the shuffle for that long! It's a crying shame.

More Will Matthews

P.S. I think there are some duplicates after the jump, but I am running really late right now and can't go through them. So enjoy some of the really hot pics twice!

Yum, all blond and muscley. Nice legs, I bet they would feel great up on my shoulders. :)

Squeaky | 2011-05-09 21:51

Wow. Completely forgot I'd suggested Will! Just got back from holiday and catching up on the slaps I've missed and find this beauty! Glad you found him on your hard drive and found him worthy of a slap!

Slap! - Romain Mesnil
Don suggested that I Slap today's feature, saying:
The day before yesterday I met this guy in the course of my work. Besides being well-mannered and attractive, there was something familiar about the name, and so it proved. French pole-vaulter Romain Mesnil is surely worthy of a slap?
Well, I certainly can't vouch for "well-mannered", but "attractive"? That's the very least of it.

As Don noted, Romain Mesnil is a French guy who "plays pole vaulting". Alas, it looks like Romain's never made the Olympics - do they have pole vaulting in the Olympics? Other than in the decathlon, of course...

More Romain Mesnil

Update 7/26/2007: Scott-o-Rama was kind enough to point me towards a picture of Romain Mesnil lurking in his eye candy albums that I'd missed - and it's a nice one! There were also a couple of another former Slap that I'd missed, so check out Romain Barras again.

Yes, I could see messing around with his pole.
KD | 2011-05-09 21:51

Are you serious? Pole-vaulting??? It's one of the oldest and most sacred sports there is. Summer Olympics are coming up...I'm sure he is going to be there. And I will be sure to be watching!
Mike | 2011-05-09 21:51

Wow - nice slap!!! And "pole vaulting"?!?!? That just begs the slew of innuendos to come... I'll start: "it's nice to see a man who is very talented with his pole".

Slap! - Freddy Rodriguez
Today's Slap goes out to a guy who's needed a good smack for some time - actor Freddy Rodriguez. I was actually looking for pics for Adam Rodriguez, who's been suggested twice recently, but the pics of Freddy were more readily available (at least this morning), so he's the man for today.

Freddy you may remember - or you may notice below - is best known, at least to me, as the undertaker (?), embalmer, whatever guy in Six Feet Under, still one of the best shows ever to be on TV. Interestingly, he's been in Ugly Betty a fair amount recently - I haven't seen every episode, but I've seen a few and not noticed him. Hmmm...

Anyway, thanks to the good folks over at Dreamcaps, there are some nice skin shots of Freddy after the jump. Enjoy!

More Freddy Rodriguez

a poor replacement for Adam Rodriquez who is SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO hot.

10 Things I Hate about Star Trek

2. The Holodeck.
I mean, it's cool and all. But do you really believe that people would use it to re-create Sherlock Holmes mysteries and old-west saloons? Come on, we all know what the holodeck would be used for. And we also know what the worst job on the Enterprise would be: Having to squeegie the holodeck clean.

The Holodecks can't be used for personal pleasure programs as this is a ship of exploration with many families on board and under military jurisdiction. That is why there is shore leave and why Riker flirts with so many women. Quark's Holo-Suites on DS9 are different. They are a paid endulgence and aren't under the same restrictions as the free Holodecks. Kind of like free network TV and Pay-Per-View Porn.
Stuart | 2011-05-09 21:51

I'm not ashamed to say I would use em to insert myself into some of my all time fave porn scenes. As for having to squeegie the holodeck clean, I guess it would be like working in a bathhouse. :p

Slap! - Cheyenne Jackson
Mike wrote recently to request that I Slap Broadway actor Cheyenne Jackson, hoping to see "what all the fuss is about". Fuss? Really? I've never even heard of him. But I guess I can see why the fuss.

It appears that Cheyenne has been in a film or two, also - including United 93, where he played gay rugby player Mark Bingham. He was also in All My Children for an episode.

So now you know what the fuss is about...

More Cheyenne Jackson

P.S. Didn't someone besides Mike request Cheyenne? Once again, I can't find a record of that. So if it was you, give a shout!

Having recently lived in New York, Cheyenne is a familiar name. I think he the scene with the Elvis-themed Broadway show a few years ago.

There is a God, this boy is openly gay!
Eric W | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap! - Jamie Bell
Perusing my hard drive again this morning, I ran across another guy that really should have been Slapped before now. He's kinda young (21), but all of the skin pics are after he turned 18. At least as far as I can tell.

Anyway, today's feature is actor Jamie Bell. Jamie is surely best known for playing the title role in Billy Elliot, which, if you haven't seen it, was a brilliant movie. Amazingly, it was Jamie's first movie role.

He was also in Peter Jackson's production of King Kong and a few other things here and there. Some of the decent skin pics are from The Chumscrubber - anyone know anything?

I officially feel like a pedophile now. Thnxs. Is he even 18? Eww!
He's lost the cuteness from Billy Elliot. Must be the drugs. Too bad, he's not aging well. The English curse!!!!

Slap! - Kris Freeman
Today's Slap goes way back to the last winter Olympics in Torino. I was perusing my hard drive this afternoon, and stumbled across today's victim and realized that he'd never been Slapped and desperately needed a good one. Kris Freeman is an extremely hot (and good, for what it's worth ) cross-country skier for the US Olympic Team.

The amazing thing about Kris is that just before the Olympics in Salt Lake City, he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. For an athlete to compete at his level with type 1 diabetes is incredible, and to look as hot as he does is just icing on the incredible cake.

It doesn't appear as if he medaled in either of the Olympics he participated in, but he's had some success in the world championships. I don't know if he'll be competing in Vancouver, but let's hope so!

More Kris Freeman

Slap! - Djimon Hounsou
You know, I really should have Slapped him a long time ago, but the recent news that he had posed for a recent Calvin Klein ad finally woke me from my trance and today's Slap-ee is actor Djimon Hounsou.

Fortunately, Towleroad had a couple of the pictures from the Calvin ads.

Most recently, and notably, Djimon was in the fabulous Blood Diamond. Well, technically he was in Eragon more recently than that, but ewww. Djimon also had a great role in Gladiator and he was in The Island with former Slap Ewan McGregor. And of course there was one of his earliest roles in Amistad.

Let us not forget that one of his earlist works was in one of Janet Jacksons videos. He was all slicked up and was bright and beautiful.

Let's not forget that he is a talented actor as well. He has been nominated for the Best Supporting Actor Academy Award twice, for "In America" and "Blood Diamond". Just like Edward Norton or Leonardo DiCaprio, let's not forget that sometimes a pretty face and killer bod hides some great talent.

Slap! - Joe Manganiello
Chris wrote a while back to ask that I Slap actor Joe Manganiello. Apparently, Chris thinks he's hot:
from how i met your mother. hot hot hot. but i can't find anything online. did i mention hot hot hot??!
Well, I must say that I concur. But I have to confess that I was shocked - yes, shocked - that someone that looks like this isn't a soap star. Doesn't he just give you that vibe?

And Chris was kind enough to send along some links to pictures. And Dreamcaps had a couple of tolerable shirtless shots. And speaking of those shirtless shots, I'm guessing that Neil Patrick Harris was quite happy to be in them...

Joe was also, for what it's worth, in Spider-Man 3 and seems to be the star of American Heiress. Anyone know what that is?

Slap of the Month - June - Shawn Christian!
I am pleased to announce that the winner of June's Slap of the Month runoff (Slapoff?) is Shawn Christian.

Runner up this month is Andrew Cooper

who is certainly no slouch.

The runoff voting was every bit as close as the original voting, and Shawn just barely eked out a win then, too, so he clearly deserves his win. And for those who thought I ran the Slapoff just so Andrew could win -- my favorite of the month was Christian Klien, to whom I'm giving an editor's choice bye into the Slap of the Year voting...

Update 7/16/2007: Oh crap! I posted this a few days ago and completely forgot to show it. But Shawn is the winner, if only by a nose...

Sorry, but I just can't see Christian beating first LeBar and then Cooper in a real vote. Perhaps he had some eager supporters who follow the old motto "vote early and vote often."
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

Let's not be bitchy, darlings! I find both Shawn Christian and Andrew Cooper extremely hot, and wouldn't say no to either one of them. I love Ryan le Bar too! I find it sad that so many gay men are ageist and think that boys and men who look like boys are the only 'men' worth listing for, but I also hate that other gay men value 'maturity' simply because they mistakenly believe its more masculine. That's also sad. It's why I hate contests like this on gay sites; all the ugly, ageist stuff comes to the fore, as well as the issue of masculinity. Anyway, they were two of my favourites, and I'm glad they came in first.
Leigh | 2011-05-09 21:51

I have to say I'm a little surprised the other guy won. I mean, he's not unattractive... just nothing special, as far as I can tell. He's a little vanilla, like most soap stars. Andrew is a little more unique, a little more memorable. And he's got a variety of looks.

Slap! - Chris Evans
I've had two recent requests for a re-Slap of Chris Evans, and since it's been over two years since he last got the treatment, I thought I'd give him another go - especially since I think he's running a close second to Jamie Bamber in terms of massive hotness right now.

ScrapIron said this:
I think its about time you take another look at Chris Evans. Way hotter in the new FF movie and i am sure there is some new stuff floating about
and Scarobound weighed in with:
Chris evans is one hot guy. I think that maybe you could re-slap him. I was watching his newest movie yesterday and when he walked out of the shower, WOW!!! He is definitely the HUman Torch. Thanks.
Well, I did find some new stuff, but I didn't come across any pictures of him stepping out of the shower in the most recent 4: Rise of the Silver Surfer. And I haven't even been to see it yet - is it still showing? I probably can't see it up here in Aspen any more, but I'll definitely catch it next time I'm in Denver.

More Chris Evans

You mean at the end of the month we're gonna be asked to choose between Jamie Bamber & Chris Evans? Talk about a Sophie's Choice!
Mick | 2011-05-09 21:51

RotSS is worth seeing for Chris in a towel alone. Completley unnesessary scene and totally gratuitous but I'm sure glad they did!
Snarf | 2011-05-09 21:51

RotSS = Rise of the Silver Surfer
anonymous | 2011-05-09 21:51

I actually thought the Silver Surfer sans silver was just as hot if not hotter. Who is he and where are the pics of him?

Slap! - Daniel Campos
Cay wrote something like 100 years ago to suggest that I Slap today's victim, Daniel "Cloud" Campos. In case you didn't know, he is (or at least was - I don't keep up with these things) one of Madonna's dancers.

Honestly, I tried to Slap him way back when Cay first suggested him, but I couldn't find much material to work with. But in the intervening months, people have posted quite a few nice pictures of him.

I have to say - and I confess, I don't say this very often - he might be just a skosh too thin. I dunno, what do you think? But in general, quite hot.

Tracey | 2011-05-09 21:51

He looks part Asian. Anyone know his background? Definitely got the twink factor down. Yeah, I'd have to agree he's on the lean side, especially the arms and probably legs too. He looks young though so hopefully he'll grow up and out.

Slap! - Hunter Cross
Dale requested today's Slap, model and actor (?) Hunter Cross a while back. Honestly, I thought I'd gotten more requests for Hunter - especially given how fucking hot he is - but I couldn't find any more names. Was there anyone else??

Regardless, Dale had this to say:
please please slap Hunter Cross of the new season of the SimpleLife. he is the hottest thing on tv right now!!!
Indeed. Too bad he's paired up with the Ditzy Duo, Paris & Nicole. Ugh. Regardless, Hunter is truly amazing. He used to be an Abercrombie model and he doesn't hesitate to show skin with Paris & Nicole in The Simple Life. God. I don't even know what to do with myself.

I think Hunter's currently got the inside track for Slap of the Month.

More Hunter Cross

He almost makes dark socks and shorts acceptable. Good looking and great body for a model.
Steve | 2011-05-09 21:51

Thanks to you we can enjoy Hunter without watching that awful show. He is truly spectacular.
JK | 2011-05-09 21:51

Slap of the month? I think not.

Slap! - Tom Boonen
Bob reminded me today that I really ought to Slap a biker, since we're all busy enjoying the Tour de France right now. We are all enjoying it, aren't we??

So today's Slap goes out to Belgian cyclist Tom Boonen. Tom seems to be one of the few bikers who reliably shows skin. I assume there must be others, but they're tough to find. But I'll try to round up a few more over the next couple weeks of the tour.

Regardless, I think Tom here is quite fetching, don't you?

More Tom Boonen

You slapped Tom to victory today, what a ride!
Bob | 2011-05-09 21:51

JuliaHouston19 | 2011-05-09 21:51

He's kinda hot. Twinkish.
He's got stretch marks and some discolorations on his ass.
The physical therapist is soooo lucky; if I were that, I would jump and fuck him hard!!!

Slap! - Jamie Bamber
I know I've done him before - nearly to death - but that's OK. Since it's my birthday today, I'm Slapping Jamie Bamber again, very much in the theme of "It's my birthday..."

One of the reasons for today's Slap is, of course, that Jamie's still my favorite Slap ever. Another is that I just finished the most recent season of Battlestar Galactica and was reminded of how much I enjoy the show - and how fucking exciting it is!! - so I just had to do him again.

So enjoy Jamie ... again!

More Jamie Bamber

happy birthday, and thanks for the present...
FenwayKenmore | 2011-05-09 21:51

Happy Birthday!!

Always a good slap! :)

Slap! - Richard Gasquet
Today's Slap comes at the suggestion of Xavier:
Richard Gasquet, French tennis hottie, plays Andy Roddick at Wimbledon tomorrow. He deserves a slap, if only because he's hot, French, and good at tennis. Tomorrow's match will be a very slap-worthy watch!
And he was certainly right. Former Slap Andy Roddick, but Richard Gasquet who managed to squeeze past Andy in a very close match is our subject today.

I'm happy that Richard beat Andy - Andy's been working my nerves lately - but Richard didn't manage to get past Roger Federer, who beat him rather convincingly. And, I have to say, Roger's really looking good these days. I may have to post a Slapdate shortly...

More Richard Gasquet

After drooling over Andrew Cooper, this one just doesn't fit in.
JK | 2011-05-09 21:51

Aw shucks! Thanks! My favorite shots are actually the ones here:

and here:

Because everybody something beautiful to start their day!
Xavier | 2011-05-09 21:51

All I can say is, Yuk! Andrew is so much hotter. Try to find what you can on Michael Shanks.
steve | 2011-05-09 21:51

Is this guy like four years old? He looks really really young. Still very attractive, in his own way, just a little young looking.

It's me!
In catching up on my (important) reading now that I'm back, I came across this comic strip about me:

Check out Close to Home.

P.S. I should clarify that I haven't had to post bail recently.

Yes, I'm back!
Yes, I'm finally back from my vacation. I had a fantastic time, even if my idea of an on-site Slap of some tennis hottie at Wimbledon didn't work out. Those guys don't take their shirts off much when it's raining.

Anyway, regular Slapping resumes today.

delighted you've returned! Hope you enjoyed London!

Slap of the Month runoff!
Someone suggested recently - who was that? I can't find the e-mail - that I have a runoff vote between Andrew Cooper and Shawn Christian for June Slap of the Month. What a great idea! They're both so smoking hot it's totally worth it!

And perhaps I should begin having instant runoff voting? Eh. That's probably too much trouble.

Andrew Cooper

Shawn Christian

Andrew Cooper is definitely a pretty boy. BUT Shawn is a hot, hot, hot MAN. Guess who I am voting for? :-P
Tom | 2011-05-09 21:51

So I can vote for Drew and Andrew too!
(Say that ten times, fast.)
Unrelated: saw a recent picture of Tom Boonen (which I can't find now), and he's looking good; acquired a slight Eric Balfour quality.
Maybe a Tour de France week?
MC | 2011-05-09 21:51've had VERY close votes before, but have never had to have a "run-off"! What's this about now? If your personally favored candidate doesn't win, you want a recount or a new vote? Be consistent.
Steven | 2011-05-09 21:51

The run-off wasn't a bad idea, but I wouldn't have minded if you had called the winner or just declared a tie. In the first vote, I just couldn't decide between them and flip-flopped between Andrew and Shawn before finally voting for Andrew, who ended up on top twice for me.

Slap of the Month - June!
Sorry for the delay, but I finally have voting up for June! I had a (comparatively) light day here in London, so I was able to get the important things done.

Anyway, I don't even remember who we did in June? Was anyone of particular note? Looks like Andrew Cooper was good, and Christian Klien is still my favorite race car driver. Oh, and Alex Gonzalez was a very nice late comer to the field. And Topher Grace wasn't super popular, but I thought he was a nice addition. So, let's have it! Who was your favorite for the month?

Marios Lekkas

Marc Singer

Zach Braff

Andrew Cooper

Christian Klien

Ryan LeBar

Leonardo Garcia

J.P. Pitoc

Rafael Nadal

Drew Fuller

Scott Baio

Christian Kane

Chris Pine

John-Paul Lavoisier

Felipe Dylon

Stephane Rideau

Andres Segura

Shawn Christian

Topher Grace

Tony Ally

Brady Quinn

Alex Gonzalez

Drew Fuller, 'cause he's a longtime favorite. That said, I'm sure a loyalty vote for him won't prevent the absolutely stunning Andrew Cooper or Ryan LeBar from winning.
MC | 2011-05-09 21:51

I am not a huge football fan but Brady Quinn... YUM. GO BROWNS :-)
Kevin | 2011-05-09 21:51

I think because of the close vote, there should be a run-off declared between Andrew Cooper and Shawn Chistian--perhaps to make it interesting, you should include Ryan Lebar.
bdiddley | 2011-05-09 21:51

I'll be attending Wimbledon on Wednesday, so hopefully I'll have a nice sunny day and can Slap some hot tennis player who practices with his shirt off. I have to confess, however, that I'm not optimistic about my chances. It looks like rain for Wed...

Slap! - Ronan Keating
I discovered today's Slap, Irish singer Ronan Keating, while perusing my cousin's CD collection. I tried my hardest not to squeal when I saw someone so cute as on his CD cover, although I have to confess that some of his pictures look better than others.

Ronan was - I didn't know this! - part of Boyzone, and has, since about 1999, released a number of solo albums. And interestingly, Ronan is the only person ever, according to Wikipedia - you be the judge - to have had 30 consecutive number one singles on the UK charts. Nice!

More Ronan Keating

Anyway, I probably should have Slapped someone from the UK, to commemorate my stay here in London, but you know how it is.

So enjoy Ronan and I'll have June's voting up shortly!

Actually Wikipedia says 30 consecutive top 10 singles not number ones. That must also include Boyzone since he only has a few solo albums and a greatest hits.
Stuart | 2011-05-09 21:51

Robert | 2011-05-09 21:51

Cute he may be, but definitely not UK! Ronan is as Irish as they come. Wars have been fought over less, you know...
Find a nice Brit - there's plenty around. XXX
