Am I Hotter than Hitler or not?

Wish I could take credit for spotting this one, but it was dagbrown who gave out the URL.

For those unaware, Am I Hot or Not is as fundamental a use of the internet as any you're likely to find. People post their pictures, other people rate them from one to ten. Egos are shot down, esteems are swollen, self-perceptions are corrected, bandwidth is wasted and productivity is destroyed. Good fun for the whole family.

The problem, of course, is that... well, I'm Not. There is, after all, probably a reason why no one has taken a picture of me in over ten years. The simple fact is, if I dive headfirst into the pool of humanity, I'm gonna end up wanging my noggin in the shallow end. I can't compete with Brad Pitt or Ewan McGregor. I can't even compete with John Smith and Joe Average.

But, I ask myself...

Could I compete with Hitler?
