The first Hot Dead Guy Sweet 16 Tournament!

May 9, 2012 — 41 Comments

We’ve seen 16 historical hunks so far. So let’s make things more interesting, shall we?

I was never interested in March Madness but these are the kind of brackets I can get excited about:

There are eight choices below. Photos of all 16 gentlemen can be found just under the poll. Select which historical hotties you’d like to see advance to the next round. Voting is open until 11:59pm Eastern time on Sunday, May 13th, and results will be posted as soon as possible.









And to refresh your memory about our contestants, here are their photos again for your convenience and consideration:

    I didn’t do them all… (how could I… they are all dead… and I’m straight)

    What a great idea! There were some tough ones, you paired up some mingers together.

      Thanks! Yeah, I probably should have paired them off more like they do in tournaments where the better seeds are paired with the lower ranked ones, but this will make for some interesting competition, at least.

    Can we vote more than once?

    I enjoyed this. A lot. This isn’t meant to be morbid, but the hot guy of mine who died yesterday LOVED March Madness and thought hot dead guys post was funny when I showed him a couple weeks ago. In some way, it’s kind of fun that a hot dead guy likes it 🙂

    (ignore me, this is my way of grieving…I never said I was good at it)

    Thank you for giving me five more minutes of pure distraction from the work I should be doing. 🙂

    They’re all better looking than I am so no help there. I only voted for Alexander Hamilton because I think that getting shot and killed by Aaron Burr puts you in a category by yourself.

      But who knows, Mr. Curmudgeon, years from now, after you and I are long gone, someone may add you to their own Hot Dead Guy Sweet 16 tournament.

      As for your selection of Hamilton, I think that’s entirely reasonable.

    Fun poll. In a future Hot Dead Guy poll you might want to consider including the animator Shamus Culhane.

    This is fun! Also — I wondered about the award that you nominated me for — am I supposed to click on something to get it? At first I thought I was supposed to wait until I was chosen out of all the nominees — ahahahaha!! I’m a spaz I’m afraid — only just learned how to manipulate a couple of widgets on my site the other day! I apologize for being slow. A couple of weeks ago you were looking to do something in the city that didn’t require you standing on line or dealing with hoards — did you come up with anything fun to do?

      I guess the word “nominee” is misleading because it does sound as if the results are still percolating. So really it should have been “awardee!” So if you just click on the jpgs of those awards and save them to your computer, you can post them on your own site and brag. It’s pretty straightforward, assuming WordPress hasn’t mucked around with anything else.

      I have not yet found anything fun to do but that’s because my overwhelming urge to sit on the couch and watch television has won out over any desire to do anything else. One of these days, maybe.

    Can I add a write-in candidate? Is Heath Ledger historical enough? He’s definitely hot. And unfortunately? Dead.

      It is very unfortunate that he’s dead. And although he’s not my type, he’s definitely a good-looking guy. I’ll have to start adding more recently dead hot guys to the proceedings. Good suggestion, Stacie!

    Some hotties and some notties. Rupert Brooke, Pierce McKennon, and naturally, Gary Cooper leading the hottie pack. HF sent me over here. Once again he’s picked another great post!

      Thank you so much for visiting from HF, I’m very glad to have you here! Not all of these guys are everyone’s of tea, but I’m glad there have been some to your liking. And yeah, Gary Cooper is just painfully hot.

    Since I need to look up about half of these, I can’t vote just yet.
    Are we voting just on hotness? As a straight guy, I have no idea how to rank them. But anyone wth frills automatically loses.

      No need to do research, I would never make anyone actually *work* for this! Merely scroll down to the bottom of the post and consult the hovertext over each picture to see who’s who. I probably should have noted that in my original post, shouldn’t I.

    Hotter? Can’t we have some other measure, like who won the most battles, commanded the most men or invested the best sandwich?

    I’m going to throw caution to the wind and bet that Wellington comes out on top.

    Cheers!
