Who loves Will Shortz? They love Will Shortz

I have been remiss in my reportage, but it's never too late to make up for it. (At least, it's never too late until someone I know personally blogs about it first.) And so I am pleased to report that fellow National Puzzlers' League member (and Holy Tango blurber) Will Shortz has won the "love him for his brains" division of Gawker's "Hotties of the New York Times" contest. Will was not nominated in the "love him for his body" division; if you would like to wax enthusiastic about Will's physique in protest, please avail yourself of the comments.

I didn't vote out of protest. They had pictures of all the "love them for their bodies" candidates. But in the "love them for their brains", did they have a single picture of the candidate's brains? No.

I have Will Shortz's Favorite Puzzles book (or whatever the title is), and there's a picture of him on the back. I have always assumed, since you can't see his lower legs in the picture, that he must be wearing shortz. In fact, that he must wear shortz at all times, thereby displaying his sculpted, manly calves. Mmmm. Will Shortz.

Will Shortz has the kind of body I like to look at both across AND down.

Actually, quite seriously he looks about 40 years younger than I thought he would be.

What? No "Love them for their mustaches" category?

Francis, this is quite possibly your best title for a post ever.

If you dare love Will Shortz, Nair for Will Shortz?
