Staring in, straining to catch a glimpse of your sophisticated virility. You know it, I know it, chicks know it, and finally Ted knows it, at least we pray that's the case. Predictably, his date was awesome. And let me tell you it was Lengen... dary

Lebanese girls have shot past half-Asians and taken over as the new preferred tasty cake. Sandwiched between Syria and the Mediterranean Sea, Lebanon is known for its natural resources of limestone, timber, and exotic bunnies - so gorgeous they'll cause any man to Bei-root for a little Middle Eastern piece.


Lebanon. Chief exports include citrus, wool, and legs.

So for those of you updating your Hot Flavor Lists at home, it now goes…

  1. Ladies of Lebanon
  2. Half-Asian Chicks
  3. Concert Tee Girls
  4. Senators' Daughters
  5. Castaways
