Salon’s Sexy Mofo

Salon’s looking for the world’s sexiest man, and its readers were loud and clear in their choice: Russell Crowe, “The thinking woman’s bastard.” Salon’s staff, however, would rather take a Mick than go down under. One voting staff member put it like this:

“With his purposeful profile — strong Irish nose and chin — his meaty thighs, and his hymn-like devotion to love (‘Love is the temple, love the higher law/ I seek to enter, and you make me crawl’), U2’s lead singer and passionate advocate for global causes is the type of man who can take you higher (‘El-e-va-tion!’). He obviously relishes the carnal as much as the celestial.”

Meaty thighs. Hee.
