Straight Guys: Predictable, But Not Hopeless

Gay Guy,

The results are in.
AOL's men's lifestyle site, Asylum.com, recently asked what celebrity most guys wish to party with. Of the more than 83,000 respondents, 40 percent named Megan Fox, while 31 percent chose Tina Fey. Trailing the Transformers sex symbol and the 30 Rock life force, respectively Рand by quite a distance Рwere Paris Hilton, Pen̩lope Cruz, Kim Kardashian and Lindsay Lohan.

No surprise to me. I noticed Tina Fey a long time ago when she transitioned from head writer at SNL to anchoring the Weekend Update skit. Smart, sassy, self-deprecating. She's got it going on.

Fox is just the latest ce-web-rity whose internet fame far exceeds her current accomplishments. How could you possibly know if you'd enjoy the company of someone, even given the fact they they bent over rather attractively in a "Transformers" movie... which I have probably never seen.

I guess the word "party" is open to interpretation, and I'll admit that straight guys get this wrong quite often. Just because you crack a can of Michelob in the 7-11 parking lot and scream "part-eee!" at the top of your lungs does not magically make it so, dude. But if I was single and given the choice, I'd probably find myself in the back of the room snarking on the idiotic shenanigans, and Fey would be welcome company.

So give us a little credit. Even though if you dig through the results a little deeper, you'll find out the Asylum readers' ultimate party involves beer-pong at the Playboy Mansion.

George Clooney and Owen Wislon topped the list for male party companions.

Readers, GG, who are your party picks?

Wanda Sykes, hands down. I'm married so I'm not looking for a hookup, and she's the funniest person on the planet. Tina Fey would be snarking in the back of the room and Wanda would be in the middle of the room doing her snarking toe-to-toe. Invite some raw meat like Ann Coulter for WS, and I'd be cracking open a Michelob screaming "Par-tee!" at the top of my lungs.
