Good morning, sir. Stephen Fry as my valet.
On my flights to and from California, the in‐flight entertainment promoted two new TV shows with bearish leading men. Looks like we’re making the mainstream!
First, of course, there were Richard Karn in Home Improvement and Kevin James in King of Queens. But now we have two romantic leading men: Kyle Bornheimer in Worst Week and Jay Mohr in Gary Unmarried.
If you search around (even on the series websites I link to above), you’ll find several furry shirtless photos of each.
Show your stuff! A different kind of sermon contest.

INTP — The Thinkers
The logical and analytical type. They are especialy attuned to difficult creative and intellectual challenges and always look for something more complex to dig into. They are great at finding subtle connections between things and imagine far‐reaching implications.
They enjoy working with complex things using a lot of concepts and imaginative models of reality. Since they are not very good at seeing and understanding the needs of other people, they might come across as arrogant, impatient and insensitive to people that need some time to understand what they are talking about.

(A tip of the hat to, yes, Andrew Sullivan–hey, the guy has staff. I promise I’ll come up with something original soon. Or maybe point to Kottke. Yeah, that’s it, I’ll switch to Kottke for my next post.)
