Hunk of the Day: Joe Manganiello

Joe Manganiello

To paraphrase Julie Andrews, an egregious error has been made, and while I would never refuse to accept a Tony nomination, I must admit when I’ve been neglectful, and right the wrong as soon as possible. In this case, it’s the stunning overlooking of Joe Manganiello as Hunk of the Day. Now, in my defense, Mr. Manganiello has been featured here before, notably shirtless in this post, in which I admitted that he wasn’t my idea of an ideal man, physically – but I’ve posted a number of gentlemen who don’t personally stoke my own eclectic fires, so let’s give this werewolf his day in the sun.

He’s had his share of moon moments as well, when we pitted his ass against Channing Tatum’s butt in not one but two butt-battles. In the first one, I think it was a dead heat, and in the second one it was all but impossible to give the edge to either one. Clearly a third tie-breaker round is needed.

This post will also complete the ‘Magic Mike’ stripping quintet, thereby giving each of those strapping strippers a turn as Hunk of the Day. That’s right, Mr. Manganiello joins the already-annointed Matthew McConaughey, Channing Tatum, Matt Bomer, and Alex Pettyfer in all their half-naked glory.

And while the Battle of the Butts is fun and fine, the real war will be waged with these questions:

Long hair or short hair? (I vote for short.)

Beard or no beard? (I vote for short beard.)

Cigar or no cigar? (I vote for cigar. Who doesn’t love a big fatty between their lips?)
