the new hotness

...is the old hotness.
A young Teddy Roosevelt, swoon worthy well before he rode a moose.

"swoon worthy"? Really?

Looks like the Caveman from the insurance commercials.

Breda said...

hey now, there's something to be said for cavemen.

Joel said...

If you say so, Breda. That pic wouldn't have been my guess for ultimate hawtness, but then I've never been any sort of judge of what women will find hawt.

Hil said...

Swoon-worthy is putting it strongly, but I dig it. Always have been a sucker for unruly facial hair.

Breda said...

He looks like a badass & I'm quite a fan of badasses.

Mike W. said...

He definitely looks like he's ready for hippie bashing....or hobo bashing.

That's how we roll up they'ah!

What's that thing on his head, a bandage?

Mad Saint Jack said...

FYI I DMed a twitpic to Breda and she told me it was "sexy."

a swimming cap of some sort, I think.

Nice chops! Fuzzy.

Marty said...

If she can have "Bangable Dudes in History" we can have "Gun Bunnies"!

Just sayin!

Per the caption at the original site, it was taken just after sculling practice, at Harvard. So, no, not taken at the family summer camp in Maine.

He rode a Moose??
Hmm.....

At least his pants aren't hanging below his underwear!!

And to think that his parents despaired of his life when he was a small, sickly child. I recall reading that they would take him on carriage rides in the middle of the night, whipping the horses to full speed to try to force air into his asthmatic lungs.

Hit the line hard, indeed.

Hmmm...link goes to a site that says "dead man porn" guess some non-porn, "porn" references are OK....particularly if'n yer dead and can't complain.

New Jovian Thunderbolt said...

Dang Progressive busybody.

Breda said...

db40385a-7400-11e0-9f1e-000bcdcb471e, you're pathetic. Get a life.

Old NFO said...

LOL- he's a little guy too!

well.. I'm not pathetic...I have a life...a very nice one, thank you. But it IS your blog. I don't have one. And i'm truly sorry if my sense of irony was offensive.

Looks like he could take Sherlock Holmes on!

Ray said...

How is this kind of post not a double standard?

Breda said...

If you can't tell the difference between T&A marketing and cool old photos of handsome men, I can't help you.

Ray said...

Come now Breda, please don't load this onto me.

You (quite rightly) railed against the use of the word 'Porn' in previous posts. You were disappointed by the gunbunny thing, and the whole T&A marketing thing had me nodding too. But you have not applied the same set of values to this post.

Bangable dudes? Dead Man Porn? Really? Not T&A marketing for sure, but disrespectful just the same. Is it just because it is a female applying these thoughts to male subjects that makes it somehow cleaner? More respectful, or just fun?

Don't get me wrong Breda, I neither like nor loathe the whole eye candy thing. I find T&A bars leave me a little bored. I just get miffed when double standards are applied, from either side.

Anyway, I look forward to your rebuttal as I respect your intelligence, whit and different take on the subjects you write about. You (in particular) have written about a few aspects of female gun ownership that were real eye openers for me. Thank you for that.

Breda said...

Please address the use of the words "porn" and "bangable" with the people who run those particular websites, not me. I believe their addresses are provided.

Ray said...

Cool, I tried. But just take a quick look again at what you posted: A 'swoon worthy' picture of a topless man, referred to as 'Porn' by a website you seem to be quite happy to have copied it from.....

OK, it is Frdiay night over here and I need a beer. Have a good weekend. See you Monday.

Cheers-Rusty

Breda said...

Meh, maybe you should stop reading. In fact, I highly recommend it.

Breda said...

Honestly, if some of you can't tell the difference between the sentiment between the words "swoon" and "porn" and an old photo of a handsome young former POTUS vs. pictures of titty bar waitresses in bustiers and kilts that barely cover their asses trying to sell you subpar BBQed chicken wings, you have some serious issues. Really.

Also, all of this makes it seem that you are most likely incapable of understanding my sense of humor so please - STOP READING MY BLOG. Or for God's sake at least stop commenting because I'mma wear out that "delete forever" button.
