Other blog readers think you’re ugly

Officially, it was Detroit that was named the “World's Least Sexy City” by 33.8% of voters on Gridskipper.com, a "hip" online guide to cities. In the end, however, it was “too close to call right up to the end: Detroit and Washington, DC (33.5%) really fought hard, but Detroit slouched over the finish line with a winning margin of only 4 votes.”

This very official competition also had us pitted against Munich, Tel Aviv and Zurich.

Seeing as how well over half the vote went to the two American cities, I’m just racking my brain to think of what they have in common that these yuppie asses would nominate them for this aspicous award…what, oh what?

That's thoroughly messed up. Anyone who thinks D.C. has a lot of fug going on doesn't spend enough time going to blogger meetups. :)

Yeah, if the nerdiest of the nerds are cute, then what the hell do they want.

Also, one word: Interns.

True, true. People ask me why I still live in D.C., and my answer is inevitably "7:1 ratio." The looks I get when I explain that are worth it every time. :)

DC is many things, but it certainly isn't "sexy". What year is this anyway? 1979?

I'm with Sean on this one...DC is so far from sexy it's scary. Hands down one of the least attractive cities I've been to. Excluding bloggers of course. OF course.;-)

I'll be honest: DC is so not sexy. Fun? Definitely. Cool buildings, incredible history? Of course. Sexy? Not so much.

Although that girl (we'll call her Kelly) sounds pretty hot...

Have fun with Dan this weekend. I'm insanely jealous. Why do you guys have to live $250 away?
