Okay, so I’m not even going to pretend I didn’t spend half my morning looking for sexy pictures of birthday boy Andy Griffith in an attempt to do a Monday Hotness: Mayberry Edition but y’all, and I say this after EXTENSIVE INTERNET RESEARCH, there just are no sexy pictures of Andy Griffith on the internet.* None. He’s a good looking man, but he’s just too aww-shucks goofy to ever bring anything approximating hotness.
So what’s the next logical progression? Adam Ant!
Mr Ant, née Stuart Leslie Goddard was a bit before my time pop idol speaking, but my stars and garters that was a good-looking man.
Not only was he in what is clearly one of the GREATEST COMMERCIALS EVER
(this is the European cut with a surprise ending!)
(incidentally, Ms Russell –in one of the famous publicity stills for The Outlaw– was wearing the world’s first push-up bra, supposedly created by Howard Hughes out of structural steel. My breasts and my spotless driving record salute you, Mr Hughes!)
Just beautiful. Also I totally want to do my guest bathroom in that wallpaper.
Okay, I’m a little weirded out by this one because he looks shockingly like a fine young priest I know. Emphasis on the FINE. He and his equally hot wife and I would take my Cadillac and go down to Lockhart for a Saturday afternoon full of barbecue and antiquing. He wore a white silk scarf as favored by the posher pilots in WWI and it suited him perfectly. That’s called panache, folks.
He also predated the Balmain military jacket phase that is current running rampant all over Vogue. and to better effect, might I add.
So there, that’s not the Monday Hotness I wanted, but it’s the Monday Hotness I’ve got, and if YOU have any hot pictures of Andy Griffith, send ’em on over. I WILL make this happen.
*Yes, I just got paid to write that sentence. How awesome is my life?
