Putin takes a mancation -- and everyone cares?

This is pretty hilarious. Russian President Vladimir Putin apparently went bare-chested on a recent trip to Siberia, and the the world has gone crazy.

Folks are wondering if this is some kind of political statement to other countries, a show of machismo or even some kind of sexual hint.

I suppose I will let the articles and photos speak for themselves.

My question: Does it really matter? I don't think it would be controversial if he weren't a politician. Anybody out there think it's inappropriate? Or would you like to see other topless world leaders?

Easy....Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan. She's smokin hot and I've always had a thing for middle eastern women. Indian president, Pratibha Devisingh Patil, would have to be a close second. I dare you to google her. No man can resist a seasoned seductress like Pratibha. I knew a young man once who tried.....damn you Pratibha.

I can think of one Times staffer whose man-hooters I'd like to see, no wait, maybe there's four, no, five, I'd like to see.

Perhaps we could do a calendar of HOT TIMES MEN! Please put this is the suggestion box.

Ha! Kathryn: If you tell me who you'd like to see I'll see if I can arrange it for you! LOL. I'd love to know who you wanna see...

I bet she wants to see John Andrew Prime's "man-hooters."

I'm not sure I want to see ANYTHING on a MAN that might be referred to as "hooters".

I actually wrote them down and it looks like the number is eight.

Four are in one department, three are in another and the other one is his own department.

And too bad y'all can't hire Joe Haynes away from Channel 3 so he could be a part of this project. My 19 year old daughter agrees with me that Mr. Haynes has a nice chest.

Awwww photo boys. That department's like the rough and ready percussion section of the high school band.

Wow... sorry everybody. I was in Vegas (where there are lots of bare torsos visible), so I was not as active in our little online community as usual. Thanks for all the comments, although this one quickly went its own way!
