Categories: Things I Like

Why should hairy chested guys be left out just because they don't shave, wax, and torture themselves like everybody else?

Besides, hairy torsos are back--even on men.

Here are some of the most fabulously hirsute ones, as compiled by the ever observant folks at datalounge.com.

Some of them even have heads!

That's really all you need to know about this photo, especially since it's all I do know.

The kids over at datalounge.com are speculating that maybe it's a shot of extras from Spartacus or perhaps the chorus from the Metroplitan Opera's latest all-beef production of Il Trovatore.

Or maye they were the presenters at the Adult Video Awards.

Show Biz Is the Worst! Hear Me Out.


Yes, I know that every breathing creature on earth dreams of a life in showbiz, but trust me: It's hell in a handbasket.

Once you enter into "the biz," there's no stability, zero security, and incomplete satisfaction.

Unlike most professions, the life of an actor is a job-by-job existence in which, every time a show closes or isn't renewed, you horrifyingly find yourself at square zero, sending out head shots to total strangers!

The Lion
Usually, joints that attract power brokers are awful, with lousy food and terrible service, because when you come down to it, people with power secretly love nothing more than to be humiliated.

Keith Olbermann, Thank You!

For more than six years, I was a regular on your show, and from the start I felt we had a way more comfortable rapport than, let's say, Spitzer and whatshername.

The Best Pepperidge Farm Cookie of All

Trust me, it's Pirouette, that classically creme-filled rolled wafer, in a delectable chocolate hazelnut flavor that's out of this galaxy.

Pirouettes are sort of like edible cigarettes crossed with magic wands of weight gain, and they're great for sticking into a steaming cup of cappuccino or adorning a lovely bowl of ice cream.

But I like them best of all in and of themselves. They're that crunchy and oozily delicious!

As what would have been his 70th birthday approaches, John Lennon is getting a whole lot of posthumous hoopla -- like a movie, Nowhere Boy, about his early days; a documentary about his Gotham years, playing in the New York Film Festival; and a Beatles revue called Rain dripping down on Broadway.

By now, you've probably heard about Steven Slater, the JetBlue flight attendant who had an altercation with a passenger who was defying orders, so he made a crusty speech over the loudspeaker, opened the emergency exit, and slid down the inflatable slide onto the tarmac, eventually getting into his car and driving away.

Fortunately, the plane was on the ground when this happened, having just landed.
