Maybe not the *absolute* best if you're into women, but it's pretty darn nifty.
I wasn't into Jonathan Taylor Thomas back in the day, but damn, he got sexy! Also, a warning: when they say a girl is now an underwear model, what they mean is, "here is a photo from her MySpace page." Using that definition, half of the people I went to high school with were underwear models.

With all the gains women have made, we still fail to make as much as men for the same work.
When People unveiled its sadly predictable choice for the Sexiest Man Alive yesterday, we were reminded once again of why Salon runs our own counter-list. Their choice: Bradley Cooper. As in, the star of “The Hangover” and “The A-Team” who, as Salon’s Andrew O’Hehir put it, “kind of looks like a dick.” The same Bradley Cooper whose moment came back in 2009.
But it is not 2009 anymore — and it is no time to genuflect before the top 1 percent of Hollywood. For six years now, Salon’s list has showcased a diverse group of men whose appeal comes from something other than rock-hard abs, blessed bone structure and blindingly white teeth. The actors, politicians, writers and athletes who made our list have done so by dint of their cultural relevance, intelligence, principles, talent — or simply the unconventionality of their charm.
We’ve always sought out men who have accomplished something significant, but this year — a year of continuing strife and national protest — that aim felt more important than ever. These men are making the world better with their art, activism and passion. They’re the sort who make you think: What a man. The sort you would never find on People magazine’s list.
The first paragraph:
“That’s what she said” is a well-known family of jokes, recently repopularized by the television show “The Ofﬁce” (Daniels et al., 2005). The jokes consist of saying “that’s what she said” after someone else utters a statement in a non-sexual context that could also have been used in a sexual context. For example, if Aaron refers to his late-evening basketball practice, saying “I was trying all night, but I just could not get it in!”, Betty could utter “that’s what she said”, completing the joke. While somewhat juvenile, this joke presents an interesting natural language understanding problem.
I know one of the authors from college and feel like I should share this. And I want to read it in full sometime and this is as good a place as any to leave the link.
