Master Chief Is On Maxim's "Dudeliest Dude of the Year" List

In the Internet equivalent of a gang war, Maxim has responded to Askmen.com's declaration that David "Kelp Pore Mask" Beckham is 2007's epitome of masculinity by creating their own list of five people who just so happen to have external genitalia and proclaiming them to be the template upon which their perma-adolescent demographic ought to base their lives. The list ranges from laughable (Robert Rodriguez) to shockingly valid (Lemmy), but the most confusing and intentionally provocative -- selection has to be the inclusion of Halo's Master Chief.

The fictional character represents the same kind of stoic strength traditional masculine role models have always demonstrated, but doesn't his existence as a complete fabrication sort of nullify their ability to nominate him? Bungie created him specifically to be the definition of that template, and assuming he wasn't spawned that way specifically to avoid the acquisition of complex character traits, he must almost be a parody of everything Maxim is claiming he represents.

The story is too old to be commented.
