Hunk O'The Month:

Win it Fair and Square.
Due to compromised results, we are RESTARTING the voting process for Hunk O'The Month. I would like to inform the public that our Shamelessly Promoted Hunk O'The Months are men of INTEGRITY and their devotees have been truly inspired by their prescence. PLEASE CAST YOUR VOTE AGAIN. All prior votes have been erased.

Go ahead. Influence the vote. Give a speech. Lobby. Add details on what makes this month's nominee a man you're glad exists. For every good one we hear of, there has got to be more. We just need to let them know it's okay to come out and play...

Your voting system is completely flawed. You and I both know people are clearly voting over and over again...including myself. I love you Thom!!!!

i feel like this is Olympic Figure Skating judging scandal revisited. Someone made a deal with the devil here.

I would like to point all the voters to my acceptance blog at ThomCarter.com

I don't believe in cheaters, ThomCarter.com!
I go away for a few short days and the entire integrity of this award has been COMPROMISED! I left this poll open for multiple voters, should readers like to inspire their coworkers, roommates, etc. THIS was unexpected. I am ashamed, embarassed, and scandelized. Please include, "Thank you for tainting these efforts."

I am tempted to simply award Tanner, since he and Some Guy Named Jordan are clearly the only pure votes.

I would like to add, I have SEEN ThomCarter.com's Blogg campaign speech, and he DOES make a very VERY convincing speech. I have no doubt he has put forth the most effort in recruiting new votes.

Best of luck to you the second time around, ThomCarter.com.

ThomCarter.com said...

This is typical West Coast biased. I set up voting locations in Princeton, Montgomery, and Newark, NJ as well as NYC and I get called a cheater!

Taking advantage of the system is not cheating . . . there was no stipulation on who could or how many times people could vote.

Since I am sitting on an airplane with no ability to engage my grassroots campaign and the other candidates can go door-to-door to campaign, I question if I want my people to be invloved in such a biased program.

It seems clear that this contest is only for people from the West Coast, those who can promise physical goods, and/or where the administrator wants them to win/nominated them herself.

While in the air I will be evaluating the merits of this contest.

I OBJECT, ThomCarter.com!
CLEARLY you are well-loved and adored the world over, have multitudes lobbying and making speeches on your behalf...I am simply shocked at how far this voting fiasco has gone!

This whole experience has tainted my return and I will have to make serious thoughts as to where Hunk O'The Month will go from here.

Tannerama said...

I think my opponents' actions speak louder than any lobbying I could enact.

While I am supremely grateful for the nod. I don't need to win. Sure, it would be nice to receive some recognition. To know that the fairer sex appreciates my hunk-iness. But if I lose, it will make me no less of a catch.

ThomCarter.com said...

Because I refuse to be apart of this West Coast farce and refuse to let complete strangers call my name and intentions into question, I withdraw "competition".

Those of us on the East Coast have no need for validation, as my opponent suggests. Maybe if issues of validation are the "problem" that the fair sex blog about out there.

My ability to turn out the vote was just that...to turn out the vote. My supporters and me acted within the guidelines, or lack there of, defined by the administrator.

Tannerama said...

My comment directed toward my opponent was meant in jest. Since it would be in poor taste to seriously call into question the integrity of a total stranger. Thom, I sincerely meant no harm. Just joking around. You know how it goes.

O my goodness. O my goodness!
This is SO Not What It's All About! Hunk O'The Month is not a popularity contest- nor is it a veiled vehicle for flirtation (although, since our readers are unduly attractive AND interesting, we will totally endorse that kind of behavior). It is MOREso an opportunity to encourage Good Man behavior and let the men around us know that their goodness does not go unnoticed. That (while they may believe that Good Guys finish last), the ones we really admire and appreciate are the men who are kind, thoughtful, intelligent, funny, and interesting.

That being said, I think you're all winners. Love ya longtime.

aaronymous said...

wow, this escalated quickly.
i LOVE to feel appreciated, which is very different than 'getting the credit' for something. really at the end of the day, just hearing thanks, goes a LONG way.
i know this is mostly all in the name of fun but as a guy who has definitely met the business end of nice-guys-finish-last a time or 2, i appreciate the recognition f*bomb is attempting to give.
ps Tanner should win it, he's good friend and a better man

f*bomb. said...

All of a sudden I realize (again) why I love Aaron so much.
He consistantly gives props to men who deserve it. What a guy.

Farce O'The Month on ThomCarter.com

Also, why don't you ask Bree about Hunk O'The Month?

Sarita said...

This is why I hate polotics. Sometimes. Can't we all just get a long?

Vanilla Vice said...

I have to tell you all that Thom yesterday proved why he should be Hunk 'O the Month, and why the men on the East Coast are superior to men on the West Coast. It's amazing that all my friends over the past two years have IMPORTED their husbands. Not a coincidence. Food for thought. I will be writing a comprehensive blog today on why Thom Carter should be receiving this honor, and why he concedes WITH HONOR! This is a sham! A SHAME! Aaron started the voter fraud and since there were no rules, Thom Carter played the game, and I along with his supporters continued to vote as outlined in the no rules guideline. If this isn't American Idol, and this is American politics, let's set some rules Farrah. And since most men in Orange County aren't commiting anyway, I bar them from Hunk O' the month. I demand credentials and a platform with a history of commitment! There's my rant.

Hahhahaahaaaaa!

People. People.
I have been out of town and away from the internet for 4 days. All I know is I got home and this poll was OUT OF CONTROL. This is not a popularity contest- it's merely an opportunity to let men know that we notice the good things about them. Hunk O'The Month is simply the figurehead representing behavior we value and appreciate.

He does not need to have friends on Blogg. He does not need to be a blogger. In such case as "Some Guy Named Jordan," he doesn't even read and I don't even know him! But he was nice and he was respectful and I appreciated that, so I nomiated him.

If the ladies would speak up a bit more and nominate, these would not be MY nominees. As for The Rules- those have been outlined multiple times. As for the voting, I simply allowed multiple votes because many of you have said you have coworkers who like to read. I wanted to give equal opportunity to vote. And I even understand voting a few times. But 900 times?!?! That's just freakin' nuts.

ps-
When I was in Baltimore, I sat beside the New York manager, and I gotta say, MAN! Do I love the East Coast. It became so very clear that, down in the core, I am most definately an East Coast girl.

ThomCarter.com said...

In the words of Lloyd Benson -
"I know East Coast Girls, and you are NO East Coast Girl."

k8 said...

speaking as a girl who has done the dating scene on both coasts i submit that there are great guys everywhere just like there are lame guys everywhere. same goes for girls. boys on the east coast could get just as lost in their studies and their 60 hour work weeks and boys here can get in surfing and Halo. The good ones deserve a little pat on the back now and then no matter what coast they happen to live on.

f*bomb. said...

um, ThomCarter? You are OFFICIALLY not making sense. Like, AT ALL.

aaronymous said...

i've been trying to play along in fun and game. but apparently this is all for REAL. how did I start the voter fraud?

Sam said...

How old are the people on this site??? 12??

Aaronymous said...

Tannerama-
I think your booty is fly. If only one of us were lucky enough to be born a lady...

Tannerama said...

Oh Aaron... you flatter me.

f*bomb. said...

How has something so beautiful turned into something so spiteful and just ugly, ugly, ugly?

I'll just be over here, clinging to my own knees and rocking back and forth until voting is over this weekend. Someone come and find me.

Salt H2O said...

I must comment, if we're comparing sterotypes- westcoast guys to eastcoast guys- I'll take a southern gentleman any day of the week.

f*bomb. said...

Some Guy Named Jordan was from Virginia. Which could explain why he was so down-to-earth and friendly.

Tannerama said...

Aaron,
Sometimes I put a wig on you when you are sleeping and then I spoon you.

It's not gay, because I'm pretending you are a lady. MY lady.

f*bomb. said...

HAHAHAHHAHAHAAAAA!!!

O, man. Do I ever love my friends. Wow.

k8 said...

tanner for Hunk of the Year!

Tannerama said...

wow... I can't even take credit for that last comment. Apparently I need to change my password... I mean what they wrote was funny.. but it wasn't me.

Tannerama said...

It was me/you. You're schizophrenic, and you just haven't realized it yet.

f*bomb. said...

I love both of you. You're so hot. Hot like a curry. So hot you are making me sexist.

PS - today is my birthday. You should all call me and tell me happy birthday.

Tannerama said...

Man, my other self is pretty clever... what are the odds of having multiple personalities and both of them being really funny?

aaronymous said...

someone s having a laugh. but not me. some of those comments are not mine, which leaves me wondering in all honesty do i need to change my info, or is someone really going to the trouble to create their own profile with my name and tanner's name? THIS is why the internet gets stupid!

Sarita said...

Happy Birthday Farrah!

And yes, multiple desirable personalities are very...desirable. Never knew that schizophrenia could be so hot.

k8 said...

Farrah! Now it makes sense that you are going to see Cake tonight!!! Happy Happy!

Salt H2O said...

I thought Farrah's birthday was in November....hmmm...

Sarita said...

I have a sneaky suspicion that a whole lotta deception is going on.

your Bro said...

Wow. You all are taking this way seriously. At the risk of sounding immodest, maybe you need to all try to be a little like, well, me, and chill out a bit.

My good friend David Bowie once said: “I'm always amazed that peole take what I say seriously. I don't even take what I 'am' seriously.” He also lived in space for awhile.

f*bomb. said...

ick.
I feel really violated.

So if someone has hijacked Blogg and is impersonating me and several others...does this mean I need to change my password? Have my bank account, credit card, and email been compromised?

Thanks a lot, HiJack. You're a bum. Go home.

f*bomb. said...

PS-
My birthday IS in November (thanks, Kory!) But I DID just get a new phone and hardly any of my numbers transferred over, so call me anyway and leave me your info.
xoxox,
