I Must Confess…my anti-freebie list
This confession was inspired by a number of bloggers who may have been under the influence at the time…
For those of you not up with the lingo (so to speak), the Urban Dictionary describes a freebie list as follows:
A list of 5 celebrities who, should the opportunity arise, one is allowed to sleep with without it being considered as cheating by your significant other.
As I recall (and in the interest of transparency and honesty, it’s all a little hazy), there was a discussion about “freebie” lists and an animated discussion about who should or shouldn’t be on them.
Of course being a blogger at a blogger event, I did what anyone would do – decide to use it as a prompt for my linkup!
Now I have confessed to those celebrities that I find rather attractive before – and I stand by my top 5, as well as all the honourable mentions that really made it a top 10 list. Go on and check it out before you read any further.
(tapping my foot)…
Okay – now you know who I find attractive, I thought I should confess to the opposite end of the spectrum. My anti-freebie list.
My friends, the following list of men of questionable morals and those who are just not aesthetically attractive to me has been compiled with great care. These entries represent the cream of the crop – those who make my skin crawl the most – those who I can emphatically promise NEVER to have sex with even if the fate of the human race depended on it.
1. Clive Palmer
Oh, Clive. I know you are rich and powerful in Australia but you are as far from my freebie list as possible. And it’s not just because of your looks. It’s more to do with your racist remarks, self-servitude and general disengagement with the people you are supposed to represent. You pretty much represent everything I am against – so “zai jian” Clive (that’s goodbye in Mandarin, in case you were wondering…)
2. Tony Abbott
Tony, I must confess I have never liked you and it’s just not because I am a woman. Your ears and your speedos have done you no favours but the real damage has been done in your endless negativity, staunch political idealogy and those painful three word slogans. I cannot respect you, especially as Australia’s PM which is the main reason you are a headline act on my anti-freebie list.
3. Steve Buscemi
Steve, you are a fantastic actor and I love you in most of the shows I’ve watched you in. You are very funny and not afraid to take on most roles. But you are unfortunately, a very unattractive man.
4. Vladimir Putin
Oh, where do I begin? Well, putting a goddamn shirt on when in the outdoors would be a great start. And maybe also working towards ending the bloodshed in the Ukraine. But even with those measures, there is never any chance of you getting off my anti-freebie list.
5. Christopher Pyne
It’s a combination of looks, cultured nasal whine and unfortunate political statements and leanings that place you in a prominent position on my anti-freebie list. You do, unfortunately, continue to remind me of a ferret and I stand by that tweet of many moons ago…(I wish I could find it but I can’t!)
