The Congressman and the Shirtless Photo

I don't think there's anything wrong with sending half naked washroom mirror pictures of yourself to those you wish to impress eh?

Or remind how much they miss you.

As long as you keep your shorts on. As long as you can keep the pictures off the web.

And most importantly, as long as you are not a "family values" crusader, and a married Republican Congressman.

Yesterday, we reached out to Rep. Lee, whose support for "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and vote to reject federal abortion funding suggests a certain comfort with publicly scrutinizing others' sex lives.

"The Congressman is happily married," said Lee's spokesman when pressed for answers to our questions. "The only time he or his wife posted something online was to sell old furniture when they changed the apartment they keep in DC."

Or a total Con nerd.

More importantly, if you’re going to send an enchanting temptress a shirtless photo over the Internet, don’t do so wearing dress pants and a belt while semi-flexing your biceps. It sends mixed messages. There’s only one man who could ever pull that off: Patrick Swayze, and he’s gone (but not forgotten).

It’s also, in my experience, quite difficult to be “relaxing at home,” as he says along with the pic, in dress pants and a belt. It screams desperate liar.

Or desperate HYPOCRITE.

And of course now UNEMPLOYED teabagger.

Oh boy. I hate love stories with unhappy endings.

But I really enjoyed this one.

Play him out Mr Koala...

Why do gay guys do shirtless so much better than the straight ones? Sigh.

hi Bina...don't be too hard on the straight boys, some of them are my best friends. ;)
In fact I have one in Montreal who ever since he started working out has been sending me pictures of his very slow progress. I shall hereby redirect his shirtless pics to you with the promise that in about two years he should look absolutely FABULOUS... :)
