"There's a lot of pressure," he says of the Sexiest Man Alive honor. "There are all the events you have to show up for. The sash you have to wear … is embarrassing."

LOL

Was anyone else even considered?
Of course he's the Sexiest Man Alive!

I saw this on the morning news, and, after swooning slightly, my first thought was "Miss Snark is gonna be soooo excited!"

Tattieheid said...

Downside to this is all the cmpetition (from other adoring fans) you're now going to face.

Poor George all these women chasing him, what a terrible life he must have.

In magazines as in reality, the world follows Miss Snark!

Kim Stagliano said...

Wahoo! An actual man over the age of 25, with a touch of gray, who doesn't look prettier than most women. Have your checked out the new Bond? Practically ugly -- but 100% man. And his torso? Get thee to a Harlequin cover STAT!

I'm off to listen to Aunt Rosie in celebration of testosterone, class and a frisson of Cary Grant pleasure that has been gone since boy/men started wearing hideously oversized jeans slumped off their skinny behinds and turning around ballcaps like unruly toddlers.

"Come on to my house, come on to my house. I'm gonna give you candyyyy." Great tune.

I don't need People magazine to tell me that. :/

So where have all his photos gone?? I miss seeing him when I come to visit you. :-)

PattiTheWicked said...

I wonder if I can buy a "George Clooney Day" card at Hallmark.

Chumplet said...

I can just see you waving frantically and throwing kisses in the background during GC's interview on Access Hollywood.

Christine said...

Sigh. Cary Grant. Add a dash of Spencer Tracy to that, please.

Sigh again.

M. G. Tarquini said...

George Clooney is what a man should look like.

And make my Cary Grant a double, please.

He was chosen over McDreamy of Gray's Anatomy. For the life of me, I can't see what is so dreamy about that man. Now George...Yummmm

Miss Snark, with all due respect, I would like to point out an error you have made in this blog entry. GC is NOT the "sexiest man of the year." He's the "Sexiest Man ALIVE." Big difference. Really.

He was sexy even in Syriana . . .

Hooray for the return of manly men -- what were we thinking when we said we wanted them to be all sensitive and good in the kitchen?

Sam said...

You can keep the heart - I will take the Bod-dee....

*Skipping away (out of reach of stilettos and poodle teeth...)*

Julie Leto said...

Uh, duh?

Like we needed People to tell us?

Word verification: ahsaiyam..."ahhhhh, say I to him"

Totally works.

I heard George just edged out some dude named E. Editor (what kind of name is that, anyway?) for the top honors.

dink said...

Bark! indeed.

and may I add, rowwwwrrrrrrrr.

Ballpoint Wren said...

When I heard this on the radio, I HAD to look and see what Miss Snark would say about it! Hee!

Sassy Sundry said...

Sponge worthy indeed.

Southern Writer said...

He'll be thinking marriage again just as soon as he meets you, Miss Snark. The one thing we know about you is that you have what he prizes so highly - sense of humor.


I'm off to listen to Aunt Rosie in celebration of testosterone, class and a frisson of Cary Grant pleasure that has been gone since boy/men started wearing hideously oversized jeans slumped off their skinny behinds and turning around ballcaps like unruly toddlers.

Amen to that, Kim! I want to see some tight jeans over their asses again. Where did guys get the idea women want to see them in those baggy pants? Ick.
I don't like the metrosexual hairless trend, either. If I wanted to crawl into bed with a woman, I would! Here's to manly men like George! Cheers.

Ellen said...

This is news? I've known George Clooney is the sexiest man alive for years!!! Hell, I wrote a book about it!

Southern Writer said...

btw, I do believe I was the first (blogger, at least) to declare E. Editor as sexy. If anyone can beat the date of 9/12, I'll concede.

Oh dear. This is not good. This is really not good. Being named the Sexiest Man Alive has traditionally been the kiss of death. The career goes downhill from there.

George . . .

There's got to be something wrong with this guy. No one man can have his kind of looks, sense of humor, intelligence, and be such an all round nice guy.

Warts, there's gotta be some warts.

But, dear dog, please don't tell me what they are.

And Daniel Craig as Bond? Can't wait. This guy is not only a major bod, he's a seriously talented actor.

Kim said...

Ok, I'm going to incur some serious wrath here, but...

Twice voted Sexiest Man Alive? Give someone else a chance! Someone like...

viggo?

By the way, let me second the ode to the manly man. What the hell is up with metrosexuals??? When did men decide they wanted to be women??? Yikes...

OK - now I'll duck!

lizzie26 said...

Too bad the real PEOPLE mag doesn't have that cute photo of Killer Yap in the corner.

prophet barabus said...

Pah. I look just like he does, and while snarky lit agents are ignoring my wickedly, sexily brilliant novel, they're drooling all over Old Man George.

...what?

I do.

Well, I have those little droop things going under my eyes, anyway.

Looks, brains AND heart, but its the sense of humour that really pulls the rug out from under you.

Sponge Worthy! LOL...shades of Seinfeld! When I saw this on ET, I just knew Miss Snark's heart would be all a flutter...The issue hits the stands on Friday!

Sha'el, Princess of Pixies said...

E. Editor as sexiest man alive?

I'm not too sure. He descends from Loefric the Bad, Charles the Fat, Peter the Inpicunious, Xoritrix the Barbarian (also known as Big Foot Xor), Charles the Nearly-Bald, and other historical personages of note, but one must wonder how much of his anscetor's noteworthy (read notorious) characteristics he's inherited.

All in all, Looney Clooney was at least a slightly better choice than was E. Editor.

Besides, Clooney is probably nice to Pixies.

Distressed Jeans said...

No. No. No. I disagree.

Although the boyish charm and the handsome looks are appealing (as is the manse in Lake Como) just ..no. Womanizer. Serial dater. Commitment phobe. I do like the pot-bellied pig though.
