The men’s magazine Maxim has an unusual addition to its Hot 100 list of the world’s sexiest women. Coming in this year at no. 69 was… Stephen Colbert.
The magazine allowed its readers to vote and due to a huge write-in campaign, Colbert slipped in at no. 69 ahead of Kat Dennings, Sofia Vergara, and Lois Griffin (yes, that Lois Griffin).
The Huffington Post reports the text of the award reads:
In special recognition of his continued efforts to bring to light the issues, both real and imagined, that face women, and generously putting a male voice to their struggles, which is far louder and therefore more convincing than a female one, Stephen Colbert, with the approval of most of the women around the office, is conferred upon the title of ‘Honorary Woman’ with all the honors, privileges and nearly the same rights as men.
Maxim explained Colbert’s auspicious prize this way: Democracy isn’t always pretty: “Sometimes it’s downright handsome. With a massive write-in vote campaign, the Colbert Nation proved they’re not only loyal but also incredibly horny.”
