…a feature I’ve wanted to add to the Picayune-Democrat for ages! (Well… months. Well… a couple weeks.)
Jude Law. Orlando Bloom. Brad Pitt. *Yawn.* They’re all so generically pretty, so undemandingly attractive, so, frankly, boooooo-ring. There’s just no challenge involved in appreciating a pair of long-lashed emerald-hued eyes, a broad muscular set of shoulders, a set of cheekbones you could hang laundry on. Sure, they’re nice to look at… but pretty only goes so far. There’s just no there there.
But the flip side of the coin is something altogether different. Unconventional looks, a fascinating flaw or two, a sly intelligence, a wicked sense of humor, a sense of something deeper. Those are the traits that make up the Ugly Sexy Man.
He may be an actor, a musician, a writer, a politician (though the last is not bloody likely). But whomever he may be, we’re happy to celebrate him here.
So without further ado… may I present our first
USM of the Week
Mmm, that messy greasy hair… those expressive eyebrows… those inexplicably pointed ears… that wide, crooked, petulant mouth.
Is he an evil pixie? An alien messenger from the Eyeliner Planet? There is no telling! But he is super-sexy… in an irresistibly ugly way.
Nominations for future USM honorees are welcome… though I have several to get through already…
