Unrealistic Beauty Standards...and a Contest!

I'm personally responsible for the eating disorders and low self-esteem of thousands of men, incapable of attaining the unrealistic beauty standards I inflict upon them.



For those unaware, this is Darren Hayes, a London-based Australian musician, former lead-singer of Savage Garden. In most pictures, he is unspeakably delicious looking, so the unflattering picture I started with was a bit bizarre. But, he isn't the only incredibly attractive man to be done a horrible disservice by an ugly, ugly picture.

Yes, I am, of course, speaking of Brandon Flowers. I just don't believe I have the skills to do anything about that monstrosity from NME, but I bet one of you does. And, in an attempt to beautify the world beyond reasonable expectations, Parthenogenetic is going to have a contest.

The Contest:
  1. You must use this picture. It can be added to, but the original picture must be identifiable.
  2. Send all entries in .jpg format to Deadline is May 15, 2008.
  3. Entries will be judged by popular vote right here. The picture with the most votes will win. Voting will be from May 16-May 26, with the winner announced on May 27.
  4. The winner will receive his or her choice of t-shirt, some buttons, and bragging rights for having made the world a slightly prettier place.
Good luck!
