Who is Dos Equis’ new Most Interesting Man in the World?

Well, writes The Wrap:

The beer brand (and its ad agency, Havas New York) have chosen to replace the former Most Interesting Man in the World, Jonathan Goldsmith, with Frenchman Augustin Legrand. Legrand, 41, has been around the French TV and film circuit since the early 2000s, occasionally popping up in an American film like “Flyboys.”

Just goes to show that as soon as you get too old, they’ll replace you with a more interesting Frenchman.

We, however, would like to nominate a few other interesting men. For example, this guy who’s making big bucks building Dungeons & Dragons “castles and caverns, cities and sewers,” or this retired electrician who died recently, leaving a collection of 60 “voluptuous mannequins”:

Mike bought hundreds of elegant retro gowns at resale shops and estate sales, and regularly changed the outfits on his mannequins. He added heels, furs, wigs, jewelry, gloves, purses, hats, tiaras and nail polish. He posed the hands just so. He painted on lipstick and added long eyelashes to the models’ impassive faces.

Less interesting? This guy who got his balls stuck in an IKEA chair and called IKEA about it (“Sitting there and noticing the accident, I bent down to see what the fuck happened, I realized the little nutter has got stuck”). Or how about research that shows that men are getting better at housework—and yet women are still stuck doing most of it? Or that asking for raises benefits men more than it does women, and it’s a myth that men get more raises than women because they ask for them more often, in case you were wondering.

Feel bad? How would you feel if I told you that Matthew McConaughey went fake bald (or real bald) for a movie:


But back to you and the things you’re worried about. Like, what’s the the deal with XXX peep shows? What’s the deal with Guy Fieri? What’s the deal with L.A.’s new football team? What’s the deal with the perfect pour? What’s the deal with babies? And what’s the deal with wives?

A Kansas man robbed a bank last week in order to go to jail and avoid his wife, court documents showed.

Lawrence John Ripple, 70, told his wife following a fight on Friday that “he’d rather be in jail than at home.”

After writing a note stating that he had a gun and wanted money, Ripple walked to a bank in Kansas City, Kansas, and handed it to the teller.

Ah yes, just another reason to never date a feminist.
