Before we get on to today’s comment diversion, a short announcement: I’ve heard from a couple of our readers (many thanks to them), that they’ve been hassled with some really shitty pop-up ads on the site that might have even had spyware attached. To anyone else that has experienced this problem, I apologize profusely. I hate advertising, I really do. But it allows us pay for the site. However, I’ve finally decided to enter 2007 and disable pop-up ads on the site permanently. It may mean squeezing an extra ad unit in somewhere (God knows there’s no space left), but henceforth, Pajiba won’t burden you with pop-ups, pop-unders, or floating ads. And I also promise never to run in-text ads, which are horrible for those like myself who tend to read with their computer mice.

Now, today’s comment diversion is one I’m running by request: Many of you, over the months, have asked that we run a same-sex top five diversion. When we ran the Five Freebies a few months back (which resulted in Pajiba’s Most Bangable Celebrities) I was surprised that most of the lists concerned Top Five Male Freebies (which is why the Bangable list had 7 men and only three women), but I now understand why. According to that Blogads survey that many of you took (and our sample was very substantial — thank you), our readership is 77 percent female! There were a lot of stats that didn’t surprise me (93 percent of you have attended at least some college; only 8 percent are Republicans; 70 percent don’t shop at Wal-Mart; and 30 percent believe in UFOs), but I was stunned with the way we skew female, especially considering that, until a few months ago, we were an all-male staff. Anyway, for those of you who’d like to see the site demographics, you can check out all the results here and find out all sorts of things, like that Corona is your favorite beer and that about 43 percent of you are either Atheist or Agnostic heathens.

Anyway, on to the diversion: Same-sex top five (or what many of my sex refer to as “man crushes”). Don’t be ashamed, now. Fess up, heteros. Admit there’s at least five celebrities that you’d switch teams for. And for our gay readership, please offer up your opposite-sex top five. Have fun.

Here are mine:

1) Ryan Reynolds
2) Vince Vaughn
3) Mark Ruffalo
4) Kyle Chandler
5) Ben Affleck

*Honorable Mention: The director of Dodgeball, Rawson Thurber. What can I say? I’m a sucker for chiseled game-show host/frat-boy features and bad haircuts. Plus, I just wanna man that’ll make me laugh, you know?
