Boyfriend, or as I sometimes like to call him, Fact-Checker, has pointed out that the Anthony Stewart Head commercials were for Taster's Choice, not Folgers. That will teach me to rely on Google to verify my memories of the '80s, I guess. IMDB has the true story, plus more interesting facts about Mr. Head. I must absolutely take issue with his ranking as only the the 5th sexiest man on Buffy. What kind of crazy lunatic would rank him anything but number 2?

Fact-Checker also claims it's "1234 1234 rock facts rock facts rock facts" — three rocks fact and not merely two, as I previously represented it. Would anyone like to take my side here?

Number two, right after Spike. Fo sheezy.

And I'm afraid BF is right, it's three "rock facts," not two. I noticed that myself but opted not to say anything because the overall content of the post was so pleasing and my snarkiness would merely mar it's beauty.

Ladies, ladies. At one point I would have put Mr. Boreanaz at number 1, but upon sober reflection over the years, I have scientifically determined that Anthony Stewart Head wins. In part it's because he sings. Another part is being a magical librarian.

And number 2 is Seth Green, for being portable.

OMG look what I did! And neither of you said anything!

Idler, you've a perfect right to your opinion, even if it does mark you as a man of inferior taste (in men). Spike has bone-white skin and that inverse butt-chin thing, and he was also in that episode of Millennium where he kidnapped Peter Watts' daughter and then his face came off. You can't win this.

Haha! Shosh, I noticed it but opted not to say anything because it was in the middle of a sentence about how cool I am (plus I knew it was a typo, and mocking people for typos is not how I roll).

By the way, I avow that two rock facts are morally more correct than three.

I thought the bad thing was saying, "Fo sheezy." That's what grading papers will do to ya.

Librarians, followed by little people, yo. It's the way of nature. Pale folks with peroxide hair and inverse butt-chins maybe come in third. Or fourth, after, ah, Nathan Fillion. Who could win it all simply by wearing his Firefly pants and gunbelt.

Surely Wesley-guy didn't win out over The Head in the polls.

What am I doing?

We don't talk about Nathan Fillion in Buffy. He doesn't wear the Firefly pants and gunbelt, he wears black jeans, and there are other, even more (!) heinous things. But yes, that gunbelt haunts my dreams.

Fuck this speculation, I just looked up the list. Shosh, we are vindicated so hard, even if the rest of the list is bunk.

You are gnawing on a giant wheel of cheese. Did I get it right?

Dude. That list is jacked up. Spike, Giles, Xander, Riley... then who cares about the rest of them, frankly.

Not to make light of your short-people fetish, IK. Hehehe... your ghosty name is ick! God, I need more sleep.

Ew, I can't stand either Xander or Riley. Spike, Giles, Wesley near the end of Angel, Oz, Angel in the first season of Buffy, Lindsey... and that's where I stop caring.

Xander is cute in a goofy, bumbling way. Plus he's old-school... er, something. Riley, well, I'm a sucker for the camo, sorry. Angel's too emo, and better as Angelus. Wesley is too femme. Oz is too short, but he's cute like teddy bear cute and I'd keep him around because he's hilarious. Lindsey is just effin' creepy. Then again, that's not necessarily a bad thing...

So long as we agree on the proper order of the first two, we're square.

Xander's an asshole who is so insecure with Buffy's power he attacks everything she does that doesn't involve fawning over him. Riley, ditto. Yeah, Angel had only a very narrow window of hotness, before we actually got to know him (and before he puffed up). Even then, he kind of looked like a monkey, but at least it was a sexy monkey. Angelus is just annoying. I totally agree with you about early Wesley, but something very good and manly happened with him after that episode when Faith tortured him. I like Oz because you could keep him in your pocket all day. I can't really explain my fondness for Lindsey, it might be the guitar playing. Or it might be the fake hand.

I'm going to stop talking now.

(I concur, as long as we agree on the first two, we don't have to fight each other. It's in the handbook.)

Yes, whips and chains will totally reconstruct a man. Bring on the pointy boots! /crack

Are you saying that Oz is a Lotus? Suh-weet!

The more I think about it, the more I like Lindsey. So I have rearranged the order of my list. Spike, Giles, Lindsey. I only need three.

And I'm not arguing. I'm working very hard at not working.
