Wednesday Night Hotties

I got into one of those "Who is the hottest woman ever" conversations today, and I have narrowed it down to thirteen (who are pictured below, not in any order), but by tomorrow I bet I think of another ten that should have been listed here. First to correctly name all 13 wins a signed copy of 'The Catcher In The Rye'*

Puss or Squib are hereby invited to do a Top 13 Men... as long as Depp's in it.

















* Signed by me, not JD Salinger.

Between me and the Missus we got everyone except hot chick #7. But I don't want your book (I have a lovely little silver-jacketed high school edition) and I don't covet your signature. Anyway, I only know 12 so it's a moot point.

Perseus said...

The blonde? Jesus. Your missus will kick herself when she finds out.

Melba said...

Debbie Harry
Winona
Xena
Hingis
?
Nat Portman
Is it Winslett not looking very much like Winslett? The give away is the little beauty mark near her lip.
Audrey
Marily
Mary
?
Pen Pitstop
Venus?

Pretty ordinary effort, sorry. Unless it was Winslett. In which case I beat Bob and Bob's missus.

Leilani said...

I'm pretty sure PJ Harvey's 5. The rest of it I agree with Melba. And that third last one is familiar but I can't remember who.

Boogeyman said...

Deborah Harry
Winona Ryder
Xena Warrior Dyke *ahem* Princess
Martina Hingis
PJ Harvey
Natalie Portman
Kate Winslet
Audrey Hepburn
Marilyn Monroe
Mary Elizabeth, Kronprinsesse af Danmark (nee Donaldson)
Joan Jett
Penelope Pitstop
Andromeda (because you are Perseus, natch)

Leilani said...

Bugger, I was just about to suggest Joan Jett but Boogeyman beat me to it. Although the hair is less sharpie.

Perseus said...

Bloody hell. I forgot 'Seven Of Nine'. And Isobella Rosselini. And '99'. And Svetlana Khorkina the Russian gymnast. And Christina Ricci. And Marilyn Munster. And Lauren Bacall. And Audrey Horn. AUDREY HORN!

Melba: No book for you.

Perseus said...

Congratulations Boogeyman!

Not only have we agreed twice this week, he also wins the book if he emails me his postal address.

(I've just about got all your addresses now. If I was a stalker I'd have a field day).

Perseus said...

MIA FARRRROWWWWWWW! Noooooooooo!

I'm tempted to start again.

Boogeyman said...

You also forgot Scarlett Johannsssennn and Kate Bush.

he also wins the book if he emails me his postal address.

Hmmm, should I expect any ticking packages in the mail?

I once offered to mail a lamb roast to Ramon, but he saw through that ploy quick smart.

Perseus said...

I'm sure both Squib, Catlick, Puss and Ramon will give me a reference to say I don't send bombs. I send junk, but not bombs.

And no, I did not forget Johanssen (attractive, but nowhere near my Top 20) and Bush (great songwriter, but not so attractive- eyes too far apart like an inbreed).

Note also I didn't include any models, and yet the bloke I had the conversation with kept rattling off models' names. They don't do it for me. A) Usually too skinny, and B) I can't think of one supermodel who has ever said or done anything that has impressed me.

Perseus said...

Yes, both of all four of them!

Puss In Boots said...

I didn't know you had my address, Perseus?? I have yours, I know.

Also Ramon, I have a souvenir here for you. I'll just send it to Perseus and he can send it on, ok?

Boogey, your souvenir got killed by customs, and the boy didn't tell me within 30 days so I could pay the money to have it treated and released. So unless you want a colourful necklace, I have nothing for you, sorry. Nasty customs people.

Puss In Boots said...

Oh, and I'll think about my Top 13 men when I wake up tomorrow.

Alex said...

and Bush (great songwriter, but not so attractive- eyes too far apart like an inbreed). 

For me, hotness has less to do with the way a person looks and more to do with some other quality that I've never really been able to described. I've certainly never seen it in a still photograph. Also, I don't think a person necessaryly has it all the time. For example, I think that most of the time Svetlana Khorkina looks like an overly skinny boy, but there's something about those floor routines...

Anyway, my picks for women are Barbara Feldon as 99, Carolyn Jones as Morticia Addams, Rosamund Kwan and Maria Forner both in Armour of God and Michelle Yeoh in Police Story 3. Men are Gregory Peck as Atticus Finch and Robert Mitchum in, well, just about anything really (except maybe real life). Lam Ching Ying in Prodigal Son gets a look in too.

My Old Man once told me that no woman ever came close to Mae West and that he couldn't understand the appeal of Marilyn Monroe. I can at least agree with him on the last part.

And what's with everybody loving Johnny Depp? It reminds me of a few years ago when everyone was in love with Angelina Jolie. I couldn't understand that either.

gingatao said...

All white women. No Gong Li, No Halle Berry. Just the nice white girls.

catlick said...

ZOMG, that last one, it's like looking in the mirror!

wari lasi said...

Catherine Zeta-Jones, easily the most beautiful woman in the last hundred years.

And what the hell is that in Pepenelope Pitsop's mouth? A toothbrush?

Bah humbug to prizes, I'm still waiting for my roast dinner from Ramon.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Wari, you have to come to Melbourne for your roast dinner.

And I can affirm Perseus has - to this date - used his knowledge for good, rather than evil.

Perseus said...

Gingatao - so I'm racist? Get fucked. I'm using 'hotty' as a vague mainstream term.

In actual fact, I agree with what Alex said.

The three most beautiful women I've ever known have been my first girlfriend Andomeda 1.0 (half Chinese, half Jew) and two Greek lovers I had in Greece. I also dated an Indian woman for nine months and she was hot (particularly because she was a surgeon).

And for the record, Halle Berry was considered, and so was Marion Jones (but she took the drugs so I disqualified her).

I hereby piss all over your aspersions.

(Puss, well, I have the address your real boyfriend sent to me, where I have sent something. I'm assuming it will get to you.)

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

I think Gingatao was calling you bland, rather than racist.

Boogeyman said...

Boogey, your souvenir got killed by customs, and the boy didn't tell me within 30 days so I could pay the money to have it treated and released.

ZOMG, tell me it was some sort of exotic wild carnivorous marsupial that would have devoured my skin and then bred with/in my corpse unless it was spayed and neutered, so I dodged a bullet thanks to the good folk at Customs.


that last one, it's like looking in the mirror!

Catlick, you tease.

The attraction for me in Kate Bush (especially young Kate Bush) was a totality of her voice, the way she moved, her facial features, and her musical inventiveness.

Samantha said...

Is Tcheky Karyo going to make it on the male hotties list? That man makes my knees go weak.

oo ooo oo and Vincent Perez?

... and Burt Kwouk - always had a thing for him.

Melba said...

Speaking of addresses: did you send me the movie? Hasn't arrived yet. I'm worried now that some fucked up drunk might steal it from the letterbox. If you haven't sent it, maybe we can arrange another way.

Speak of Depp. Come on people. That's all you can come up with?

Have to agree with bland accusation there.

Alex said...

The attraction for me in Kate Bush (especially young Kate Bush) was a totality of her voice, the way she moved, her facial features, and her musical inventiveness. 

'Wuthering Heights' must be about the best music video ever made. With 'Babooshka' coming a close second.

Dude, you can't place conditions on someone else's top 13 men. If you want to make sure Johnny Depp appears in a top 13 men list and you don't think Puss or Squib would make room for him in that list, then you should do your own top 13 men.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

Stand by for the "Ramon Insertnamehere's 13 top HOTT Marxist Revolutionaries".

Alex said...

Actually, I'm surprised that Gillard hasn't gotten a mention here yet.

Ramon Insertnamehere said...

You mean like this?

kitten said...

Actually you said "correctly" name them so Boogey is still out one - Xena is the character, the woman is Lucy Lawless.

Boogeyman said...
This comment has been removed by the author.
Boogeyman said...

Actually kitten, Lucy is in character there, with full character dress, and the picture is clearly a still from the TV series, so the answer is most definitively Xena.

Nyerr.

Oh, and just for good measure *pokes tongue at kitten for being a nerdy disproved swat*.

kitten said...

Thats like saying its not Audrey Hepburn but "Sabrina".

Boogeyman said...

Except that Audrey's character in the picture is pretty ambiguous. Lucy's isn't.

Besides, if people asked you who you argued with today, do you say 'Boogeyman' or use my real name? Even those who know that would answer the former. The name of the character is a sufficient reference, within context, to indicate the same living entity.

Is this how you obtained three degrees - by nitpicking trivialities?

Alex said...

You mean like this? 

I do hope she eventually grows her hair out again.

Boogeyman said...

I think Julia's realised that flaming red hair doesn't inspire confidence in the business sector, or warm her to the Labor Right.

gingatao said...

Holey mackeral, settle down. Life is too short. Still a bit touchy from that hangover maybe?

Perseus said...

For the third time in a week, I agree with Boogeyman.

The correct answers were indeed 'Xena' and 'Audrey Hepburn'.

Normal arguments between Boogey and I will resume next week.
