Speedos or Speedon't


Did you see these hilarious pictures of Jerry O'Connell* in People Magazine a while back?

Yay or nay to the Speedo? Does it depend on the person wearing it, or is it always a bad idea?


*Huge, hearty clap on the back to Jerry O'Connell for having the balls (?!) to appear in these hilarious pictures. :)

Always bad, no matter what or who!

Way to go Jerry!

Stacy said...

MAJOR NAY! NEVER, EVER, EVER! And OMG, my DAD used to wear one!!!! I'm still traumatized!

Melanie's Randomness said...

He's hilarious!! I gotta give him credit but generally Speedos are a no-no. Unless you look like the model Tyrese. He can wear whatever he wants, but generally No. And I think that needs a repeat of NO NO!!

Awful. Like looking at plastic Ken, de-sexualized thanks to Mattel comp.
I'd rather prefer guys in boxer shorts or something... let me name it: prettier ;-) then Speedos...
Just my 2 cent.

Tia said...

Wow. Speedos make me vomit in my mouth. Its like seeing a grown man wear whitey-tighties. Not okay. I like my men a little more covered up. But Jerry is hot, and Im not going to lie, there are definitely things Id like to do to him in that banana hammock.

WendyB said...

He's a good sport!

Trixie said...

ALWAYS BAD. They're a bad choice no matter what age or shape. Just not flattering. nope

Iva said...

OMG!! I totally LOLed when I saw these!! BUT its even more funny on for some reason here!! LOL. and I love the headlines for each one, hilarious. Total props to him for sure for doing it..like you said balls. LOL...although the 2nd picture...apparently MIA?

Dancing Branflake said...

No No NO! Ew. Give me board shorts any day.

Iva said...

UGH sorry my computer is going haywire...

Tangerine Speedo by Caviar...I'll listen but I don't think I want to look!

JenRem said...

For some strange reason I think he looks rather hot in these photos. Speedos are not a favorite and not what I wuld choose - but he looks yummy and that is all that matters :)

Morgan said...

A definite bad. For anyone!

Caroline said...

Only on a hot sexy ripped Italian man (who wants me and is giving me "those" sexy eyes) on the beach in Capri. Otherwise never!

bananas. said...

Ahh haa! I always giggle like a gay tranny when i see a guy in a speedo. It's just humorous no matter how good looking the guy is.

Old men with their old balls are the funniest though.

Christiejolu said...

Daniel Craig in a speedo was pretty hot!

Jerry doesn't look too bad either.

I do think it depends on the person.

Ela said...

Hello my sweet drolly!

NAYYYYYYYYY

Whoa. Those are some hairy freaking legs!

He has always bugged me. Remember My Secret Identity???

Gabby said...

Hmm. It's pretty much always bad - BUT he is hilarious! Love it.

Karisa Tells All said...

whoa! I think he looks good actually! in general though, speedon't please

Kitty Stampede said...

hahahhaahaha...NO! But they are damn hilarious to laugh at, so for that I am glad they exist. And these photos are too funny. I don't like speedos on guys but i actually dig the look of tighty whities on some guys, my man...hahahaa, i find its adorable for some reason....some men have a particular body shape that pulls them off.
i hate when you can see every little detail on a man's wonk in speedos...the ones on jerry are slightly loose, so it's not as humiliatingly moose knuckledom.

Phoenix said...

Only two men should be allowed to wear a speedo, and that's Michael Phelps and Daniel Craig.

Everyone else, invest in some swim trunks, for the love of God.

Claire Kiefer said...

I think that as long as it's done with humor, it's all good. These are funny. Speedos!!!

Pretty Little World said...

The Speedo is pretty much always a bad idea unless you're a member of a swim team. But I love Jerry O'Connell and so he totally gets away with it.

starbox said...

'I'd rather go naked'- Say no to speedo ;)

Bathwater said...

I got to admit about 25 years ago I used to wear a speedo. I can't remember what I was thinking back then.

Kathryn said...

I vote Speedon't and would say the same thing to thongs - leave a little bit to the imagination.

Even on a well built, well endowed guy it is a bit...distracting. It makes you wonder it they are that quick to almost display what God gave them with every stranger on the beach that they may have already been sharing it with every stranger on the beach and continue to do so in the future.

I think they should keep the Wizard behind the curtain and only reveal the magic on a discretionary basis.

ticklishfromadistance said...

No, NO, NO, NO, hell no, NO, NEVER!

PR articles said...

To show his sense of humor I can accept them. Otherwise, speedos are reserved for divers, maybe, if hey really have to, just don't overdo it by showing a diving competition while I eat.

Karls said...

Nay! Nay! Nay!

Living on the coast, I occassionally see men in retirement, leathery tan, running up the beach is a speedo. Dude! Girls wear bra's for a reason - ain't nobody need to see your dick flapping around in the wind - or when you get half a bar!

C.B. said...

Well, he's come a long way since Stand By Me. When it comes to Speedos, I don't think they look good on anyone. They look too similar to panties.

Farah said...

i dont know. But still a pat on the back to Jerry O'connell for doing this. ;)

Pink Blog Girl said...

I have never been a fan of speedos, but these photos are too funny :)

Asylum Dolly said...

No to the speedo!!! Although these pics are funny, and kudos to him for having the ..ahem..balls to go through with such a shoot!
Laughing my ass off at Carolines comment. She does have a point. As may the man she is speaking of, if ya know what i mean, hahahahhaa

adrienzgirl said...

Hell Nay! Hell to the N to the ay!

G-ross!

Jennifer DeDonato said...

Oh, he has balls alright and we can all see them. NAY!

Cheryl said...

Looks like Jerry has a really good sense of humor. I still think of him as the fat kid from Stands By Me.

Mmm, I'm pretty neutral on the speedo thing. And hopefully whoever I date will be neutral to thumps up on my lovely choices of underwear...

carina said...

it doesnt matter who's wearing them, they are bad. real bad.

Krystal said...

interesting...because before seeing those pictures i would have said no - but he was adorable!

SabinePsynopsis said...

Yay! We want to know what they've got, don't we?

...love Maegan said...

I DIE for your title ...THEBESTEVER.

vint junky said...

hahaha! i think it depends on the bod and he certainly has the bod

xx

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

Nay. Nay nay nay nay nay. (Wow, I sound like a horse. But seriously. Nay.)

Funny, because Curtis and I were JUST talking about Speedos. My opinion is that even if you can wear a Speedo, you shouldn't. Creepy.

frenchie said...

speedo no no.
but the pictures and the dude are def doing it second degree and then it is funny and therefore ok.

TheBeautyFile said...

Omg...I haven't stopped by in a while either....but I'm SO glad I just did...holy shit. He's whack!!

Diana said...

if a man is wearing something i'd wear, it's a big no. those would be cute boy shorts on a girl, not speedo's on a guy, haha

Hanako66 said...

hm...no to speedos, unless you are a swimmer or something. but i have to admit that he looks pretty hot here.

adrienne said...

haha that's hilarious! and he reminds me of chace crawford in these pictures...
