Your "Men on Top" picksSlide show: Don't agree with our list of sexiest men? Here are your choices for the guys we missed

View the slide show

OK, so some of you don’t like Russell Brand. Or, to quote you more precisely: “ACK!” “You blew it, Salon!” And, the classic: “eeewww.” Some readers clinked champagne glasses upon reading our annual list of sexy manliness — and, personally, I think it’s the best we’ve ever done — but beauty is in the eye of the tweeter and Facebooker. Some took issue with The Situation. Conan O’Brien is an aquired taste, I guess. Hey, it’s not like we expected everyone to agree.



But now, it’s your turn. The following slide show features the 12 best suggestions from commenters and Open Salon posters of the men left off the list. One clarification: We never repeat any of the 15 recipients from previous years (the only exception was Neil Patrick Harris, who had such a spectacular year in 2009 he earned the exemption). Prior lists have included Stephen Colbert, Idris Elba, James Franco, Jon Hamm, Justin Timberlake and many of the ALL CAPS! SUGGESTIONS! we saw in our comments and elsewhere. So calm down, people. Enjoy the alternate “Men on Top” slide show. And no, I’m sorry, Louis CK didn’t make this list, either.

    2014's fast food atrocities

    McDonald's Black Burger: Because the laws of competition say that once Burger King introduces a black cheeseburger, it's only a matter of time before McDonald's follows suit. You still don't have to eat it.

    Domino's

    2014's fast food atrocities

    Domino's Specialty Chicken: It's like regular pizza, except instead of a crust, there's fried chicken. The company's marketing officer calls it "one of the most creative, innovative menu items we have ever had” -- brain power put to good use.

    Arby's/Facebook

    2014's fast food atrocities

    Arby's Meat Mountain: The viral off-menu product containing eight different types of meat that, on second read, was probably engineered by Arby's all along. Horrific, regardless.

    Krispy Kreme Triple Cheeseburger: Only attendees at the San Diego County Fair were given the opportunity to taste the official version of this donut-hamburger-heart attack combo. The rest of America has reasonable odds of not dropping dead tomorrow.

    7-Eleven

    2014's fast food atrocities
