Important Questions

Just to get serious for a moment:

1) Angelina Jolie, or Jennifer Aniston?

2) Ginger, or Mary Ann?

3) Did your answers to questions 1 and 2 line up on the "wholesomeness" scale, or on the "dark hair vs. fair hair" scale?

Discuss. All are invited to comment, though comments by straight men and gay women will be weighed more heavily in this very scientific survey.

1. Aniston
2. Ginger

The was skewed for me, because I have an irrational hatred of Angelina Jolie, but I suppose I went with "fair haired."

I'd be content to just stay here thank you very much but since you asked two questions

Mary Ann.

And I don't know the why to either answer but I am absolutely certain that I am right.

Mary Ann.

Wholesome trumps. BUT you've gotta admit that Mary Ann's outfits were much hotter than Ginger's, so I am not sure where that leaves the wholesome quotient.

But I like Brunettes ....

Are we talking marriage?
Or "other"?

Which ones would tell us the winners to their "Name My Business" contest? Although I realize that since I asked twice, I'm sure to be automatically disqualified! Better than losing, I say! You probably wouldn't have allowed substitutions on the prize anyway...

The question? Brunettes, definitely!

Jolie, Mary Ann. Must be the brunette thing (like I didn't know that...heh! I've had a thing for brunettes since oh, about kindergarten or so.)

But to echo DeeDAGo, I have to take some exception to the "wholesome/hot" dichotomy, because Mary Ann was most certainly both. I always thought that maybe under all the glitz and glitter, Ginger was actually frigid. Overcompensation, y'know.

Maryann wore pigtails. And her outfits didn't really show off her bust that well, IIRC. I'd say her legs were on display a bit more. Though of course it's been a long time.

Jolie, Mary Ann.

Has more to do with the underlying personalities, I guess. Aniston and Ginger were whiners - I see Angie and Mary Ann doing what it takes to get by. Call it the "resourcefulness" factor.

Besides, both Ginger and Jennifer fake the hair color.

It's not about what is exposed so much as what is revealed. It's something more fundamental than square inches of exposed flesh that makes Mary Ann hot.

New Daisy Duke vs old Daisy Duke? Catherine Bach, hands down! Must be the brunette thing again...

Jessica Alba.

And Mary Ann.

And old Daisy Duke, definitely.

Mary Ann

Jolie just doesn't do anything for me despite my preference for brunettes.
Ginger looked like she was trying to be sexy, Mary Ann was sexy.

Oh, and the original Daisy Duke.

About Joy W. McCann: I've been interviewed for Le Monde and mentioned on Fox News. I once did a segment for CNN on "Women and Guns," and this blog is periodically featured on the New York Times' blog list. My writing here has been quoted in California Lawyer. I've appeared on The Glenn and Helen Show. Oh—and Tammy Bruce once bought me breakfast.
My writing has appeared in
The Noise, Handguns, Sports Afield, The American Spectator, and (it's a long story) L.A. Parent. This is my main blog, though I'm also an alumnus of Dean's World, and I help out on the weekends at Right Wing News.
My political philosophy is quite simple: I'm a classical liberal. In our Orwellian times, that makes me a conservative, though one of a decidedly libertarian bent.
