Oh yea, it happened.

AfterElton.com, home of the best (read: George Clooney has never won) list of hot guys, decided to find out who is the best Gay man of the decade. The final two, (if you haven't guessed yet) are:

Neil Patrick Harris


and John Barrowman


(seriously, that was totally an excuse to post those pics because... well, yea)

The whole thing happened before I found out about it so, sadly :(, I can't tell you who to vote for, BUT, the final days voting got pretty serious with friends and obscurely connected celebrities rallying to each man's side and calling up their respective armies of Tweeps (twitterers? Twitterians?) to vote for one of the other. No seriously they were rallying. Neil Gaiman even coined the term "Big Gay Battle" when he threw his weight behind Capt. Jack. The whole thing was chronicled in ongoing updates on Ed Kennedy's blog here and here too!! (The second link is better)

Also, sure sign of something going viral? There are Lolz about it.

The winner?? By a rather large majority (62% of all votes) is... Ianto!!! er no. It's NEIL PATRICK HARRIS!!!! (cue victory Unicorn parade)
Results and Neil's thoughts (Overall: good, has it's classy bits, joking bits and shout outs to Tweeps, first paragraph is a little awkward though) here
John's thoughts, not as long as Neil's and involving the word "gay-lord", are here

Oh, and just in case I wasn't clear, this was BIG. Big enough to make me wonder why it took me this long to know it was happening. How big you say? The Wall Street Journal ran an article about it, as did FirefoxNews, and The UK Sun sent out a plea asking people to vote for Barrowman. So yea, basically it's a case of geekworld crashing into celebrityworld then spilling into realworld. And yes those are real places.

Hehe, yeah [personal profile] kiki_eng sent me some of that, it's hilarious, and I was going through some of the tweets. It's just insane all of the people who got in on it and took sides.
Though I have to say I haven't seen those pictures and they are lovely!
