Beauty's In The Eye Of The Survey

Huntington, WV's Herald-Dispatch reports the city has a new distinction: men living in the Mountain State's second largest city are some of the ugliest dudes in the United States. (a site I didn't know existed because, clearly, I'm one of those ugly dudes who doesn't think often about his looks) ranks Huntington as having the 5th ugliest population of men, tied with Mobile, Alabama.

By the way, I've been to Mobile. I have friends in Mobile. Huntingtonians are nowhere near as ugly as Mobilians.

Check out this picture of me (far right) and some friends, taken at my recent high school reunion, for proof!

Here's the Top Nine list put out by the beauty site. (I'm unsure why they came up with only nine):

No. 1: El Paso, Texas

No. 2: Hagerstown, Md.

No. 3: Miami

No. 4: Greensboro, N.C.

No. 5: Mobile, Ala. and Huntington (tie)

No. 6: Detroit

No. 7: Philadelphia

No. 8: Houston

Where's A. James Manchin when we need him?

Well I live in Huntington and my identical twin brother lives in El Paso, so maybe they're onto something.

FG and Wabi-Sabi, you are neither one of you ugly...I've seen you both and I know. However, as a woman who used to live in Huntington, I can say that there is a definite lack of male eye candy in that town.
