GQ’s Men Of The Year

Yesterday marked the annual Men Of The Year ceremony where GQ Magazine unveiled their (mostly) testosterone-driven covers for October.

I have no clue why they choose to announce one woman of the year?  Why pick the aging Dutch model Lara Stone? (And by aging I mean she’s older than me, which is older than the pyramids in that industry)…

Someone also please explain who Benedict Cumberbatch is? Is he Hubert Cumberdale’s long-lost brother from Salad Fingers?

Here’s the list of honorees from the ceremony:

Actor of the Year: Benedict Cumberbatch
International Man of the Year: Bradley Cooper
Band of the Year: U2
Cultural Icon of the Year: Trevor McNunn
Politician of the Year: George Osborne

[Out of these 18 people I’m familiar with 7 of them. How many do you recognize?]
