If Last Night’s Project Runway Taught Us Anything

posted by on January 10 at 11:42 AM


It’s that few things are as entertaining as old photos. (Thank you, circuitous Slog tipstress Stephanie.)

And if my pre-Project Runway Slog post taught me anything, it’s that certain readers are deeply appreciative when they encounter photos of non-skinny, non-hairless men on Slog. For these readers, I present the ridiculous accumulation of attractiveness known as English rugby player Ben Cohen:


Really, he’s like a frickin’ Care Bear version of the World’s Sexiest Man.

I'd bury my face in that chest if he didn't look like such a fucking toolbox.

Hey Mr. Poe! I got my first grey hair the other day! How many do I need to be considered hot by you?

Also, yes, that Cohen is one hot mother f-er...

@1, I'd do it anyway. Looks like one of my old roommates.. straight roommate >_

Bonus Points: He may be straight, but he's a friend to teh gays!

Oh remeber the days when we were 27 and not invisible!

hmmmmm...methinks I know where that Olan Mill pix came from, cause I got that sent to me, too...but the best part were the captions.

Ben Cohen....sigh....

I'd do him... and I'm not gay.

Cohen looks alot like me come to think of it.

Mr Schmader - I salute your excellent taste in men and, of course, your very satisfying writings. You show a kind of editorial control that I'd like to see more of.....

oh, the Olan Mills link doesn't work...

Great minds really do think alike. When I saw that Favre pic yesterday, my first thought was how do I get my imagination to come up with a convincing scenario for Favre and Ben Cohen to be sharing a shower head. If I can get Steve Young in there, I'm calling in sick today.

Yum!!! Thank you Schmader. You made my day. Especially with the boxer-briefs photo.

Steve Young?!?! There are 20 quarterbacks that are hotter than Steve Young.

Either sport a perfect head of salt & pepper (50/50), or have an entire head of silver. This isn't a requirement, though. Grey hair is merely the #1 deciding factor of a long-term relationship--next to how good your face looks with it--not a 1NS.


Posted by Mr. Poe | January 10, 2008 1:04 PM

Olan Mills link fixed!

Also, I don't know what Steve Young looks like but I shall do a Google image search now.

Steve Young: S'alright. I expect my Mormons to be sexier. (See: Jake.)

Posted by David Schmader | January 10, 2008 1:23 PM

@12 - Probably, but for some reason he turns my crank. I was going to go with Ben Browder but I figured the number of Slog-reading Favre fans that were into Farscape is pretty low.

Posted by skweetis | January 10, 2008 1:31 PM

Thank you, Mr. Schmader. You made my day!

And to Sargon Bighorn @5:
As a 27 year old who's been invisible since he turned 22, what on Earth are you talking about?

Posted by James | January 10, 2008 1:46 PM


I could stare at that one all day.

Posted by NapoleonXIV | January 10, 2008 3:16 PM

Amusing that you've got onto this hunk; my count of old saved Ben Cohen pics is at 9 and growing. Its a good day for Nice Jewish (ancestry) Boys, awww...

I was hot for Wilko, then Cozza was revealed to me and now, well, he is my boyfriend.

Posted by Jubilation T. Cornball | January 10, 2008 5:01 PM

i'd hit it.

At last, a counterpoint to Dan Savage's obsession with hairless twinks with big teeth. Fuck, if that's what the paper is about, do a cover on Huckabee.

Posted by Waldo | January 11, 2008 5:11 AM

Damn...he's hot! Thanks for the early morning eye candy.

@10: Well done ;)
