King Carl XVI Gustaf: 145th hottest head of state

Ranking hotness is certainly frivolous but this site does it anyway.  And why not.  There must be some redeeming value to ranking hotness of the world’s heads of state (and government, see FAQs.) Of 217 heads, the Swedish king, Carl XVI Gustaf, is the 145th hottest head of state.

King Carl XVI Gustaf

That the Pope Benedict, Kim Jong-il  and Gaddafi round out the bottom of the hotness barrel seems a no-brainer, but I am not sure Queen Elizabeth and Hugo Chavez  deserve higher rating that  Carl Gustaf.  (Well, they’re only squeaking by on the higher scale at 139 and 140 respectively.)

Well, the authors of the list did qualify that hotness is a subjective value. And they empower you voice your opinion:

“If you disagree with our rankings, we encourage you to voice your opinion by leaving a comment at the bottom of this page. Like any good sham democracy, we will take your comments under advisement.”

Who would you shift around and why? I would knock Putin down a few notches. His “ick” value gives King Carl Gustaf’s blah value a much weightier rating.
