Simon vs. Hitler

"I can't compete with Brad Pitt or Ewan McGregor. I can't even compete with John Smith and Joe Average. But, I ask myself... Could I compete with Hitler?" The very best use of HotOrNot ever.

Even Hitler Had A Girlfriend...

Just proves the old adage, that no matter what women say about wanting a nice guy, assholes still get laid more.

Could I compete with Hitler?

Apparently not. Sad. So. So. Sad. Maybe most HotOrNot users are Nazis?

I like this guy. I think I could drink tea with him and talk about stuff. But there's no way he's sexier than Hitler. Maybe a Mussolini or a Pol Pot, but Hitler? Keep dreaming, buddy.

Hitler's a corpse now. Everyone's hotter than Hitler.

When did HotorNot turn into a dating service? Many of the photos there now say "click here to meet me".

Let me tell this, and you're getting it straight from the horse, Hitler vas better looking than Churchill, he vas a better dresser than Churchill, had more hair, told funnier jokes, and could dance the pants off Churchill!

Google's having a bit of a problem figuring this one out. We have textads for "Big Boy War Toys" ... men's shoes ... and "Weblogs for Churches". Of course the sum of the parts could mean more than the parts themselves. Parts is parts.

Whatever, Simon's a cutie, I'd hit it.

Somehow, WolfDaddy, I think that'd only make him feel worse.

Also when I put my self on hotornot, I only got a 7.2, which means I'm beneath a dictator and a dweeb.

Go, me.

Best use of HotorNot?

No way!

I got an 8. Hmmm, I guess my life finally has meaning: to travel back in time and mutilate Adolph's beautiful face with acid.

I wonder if I could compete with Ayn Rand. Or Queen Victoria in her later years. I'm just too chicken to try though.

There's a mental image I'd rather not have.

Hitler's in Hell now. No one's hotter than Hitler.

How do you know? Did he send you a postcard?

I liked the whole project -- it showed pizzazz, gumption and a fun slant on self-deprecation. Plus, Simon is funny and somewhat charming.

Strangely enough, I had never considered Hitler in any other way than as a despicable human being. Looking at him with his blue eyes, no mustache and some colour, he actually does appear fairly good looking. Whodathunkit? What was with that mustache, anyway? Did somebody he looked up to tell him it looked good on him? 'Cause it didn't.

You can't be a ruthless dictator without a 'stache. Unwritten rule.

Let me know if this turns into the thread where we have to reveal what score we pulled on HotOrNot, whether or not we selected the picture that got posted...

(uh oh, looks like it's still on file, too)
posted by NortonDC at 12:15 PM on May 28, 2003


But jonmc, I think you're a cutie, too!

Perhaps my standards are too low. At least I have standards.

Hmph.

Unlike the rest of us, WolfDaddy, is that what you're implying? (Not that it might not be the case...)
posted by orange swan at 12:41 PM on May 28, 2003


Someone, and by looks of it many someones, think Hitler's hotter than Simon. The rest of the implication I leave to you...

Poor, poor Pretty_Generic...

Is it just me, or does the retouched Hitler look a bit like Patrick McGoohan of The Prisoner fame?
posted by grabbingsand at 1:16 PM on May 28, 2003


I love it.

But, Simon, if you see this, lose the facial hair. You're cute, but the chin pubes have to go.
posted by SuzySmith at 1:41 PM on May 28, 2003


Upon releasing the links to the public at large, my score has actually gone down, to 7.4. Meanwhile, that sexy bitch Hitler is up to 9.1

LOL

If you're going to give Hitler blue eyes, should you go the Aryan Distance and give him blond hair as well?

And perhaps a little botox for those premature forehead wrinkles.

and he was a better painter than churchill !

You know, he did a really bad job of removing the mustach. That little dent above the lips is gone. Very disconcerting.
posted by delmoi at 6:56 PM on May 28, 2003


You mean the philtrum, delmoi?

Brought to you by the useless anatomical trivia section of my brain. Also, I was gonna put a picture up, but ... well, just don't do a google image search on 'philtrum'. Seriously. Don't.

Don't.

Seriously.

Simon desperately needs to get rid of the sparse, twisted hairs on his chinny-chin-chin. They look so... nasty.

Hitler always looks like he's got a broomstick rammed deep up his ass. Real hard-core bitterness. A man sans joy. And that mustache, yeesh. And that hairstyle, yeesh.

I wonder if he was picked on as a kid.

he's kinda cute, actually. not hitler, the other guy!

grabbingsand: Is it just me, or does the retouched Hitler look a bit like Patrick McGoohan...?

Nope, I don't see it. But he looks a lot like James Keach, Stacy's brother, Jane Seymour's wife. Eerily so, if you imagine the motorcycle cop in "Vacation".

Scrummy. He can compete with Ewan MacGregor.

Best comment:

"Sorry! I gave you a 6 because your pretty good looking. But I would fuck Hitler like an animal. Really, I would suck that cock until his other testicle fell off too. You shouldnt have made him look so hot friend."
posted by NekulturnY at 3:48 AM on May 29, 2003


Hitler without the moustache looks so darn familiar! There is a movie actor who looks just like him, I think - Robert Patrick (Terminator 2, X-Files) maybe?
