Asylum compiled a list of the 100 most-searched-for "hotties" on the web. I think we're running out of themes for hot women countdowns because this one is a new low.
First of all, there's a reason people don't just hop onto Google Trends to find hot women: Just because a woman is a "hot search topic" doesn't mean she's all that "hot." "Hot topics" can be influenced by all sorts of things. Take Asylum's #100 on this list: It's Ashley Judd. The highlight of her last 12 months was a disagreement with Sarah Palin over hunting laws. So though Ashley Judd may be a decent looking gal, she probably didn't eek out a spot at the bottom of the list from guys searching out her latest pics. A more likely scenario is that those searches came from other women after seeing her story on the Today Show. By this logic, everytime Oprah opens her mouth we'd have our latest "hottie."
Secondly, search trends are a compilation of what the general public is searching for. The general public is generally screwed up. I do not want their opinion. If I'm going to check out a movie, I'll read the latest Joe Morgenstern review, because if I took advice from the general public last weekend, the box office would have me seeing Couples Retreat. No thanks.
My point? Leave the hot-women picking up to the editors at Sports Illustrated. And if you don't believe me, there's 98 more reasons not to trust public opinion over at Asylum.
