"The 100 Unsexiest Men in the World," published in the April 18 issue of the Boston Phoenix, was the number-one story on MSNBC's "Countdown with Keith Olbermann" yesterday. (Transcript available here; scroll way down.) Associate Editor Bill Jensen was on hand to defend his choices, from Gilbert Gottfried at #1 to Brad Pitt at #100. Of course, Olbermann was most interested in #58, Fox News' Bill O'Reilly, with whom he has been feuding. Jensen explained that O'Reilly made the list because of his "splotchiness" and "bullying," and the falafel affair: "I think, any time you are going to, you know, talk to a woman on the phone and say you want to rub her with a sandwich full of chickpeas in the shower is -- is not going to help your sexual quotient."
