Because Debbie Harry was awesome hot back in the day, when I was a young joey.

Def, blonde, but not dumb in the least.

First, some administrivia: there will be no Rule 5 Sunday this coming weekend, but please continue to submit links for the Month-End Double Stuf Makeup Edition on April 29. As for this week’s belated parade of pulchritude, insert the standard disclaimer here.

Laughing Conservative hits the beach with Emily Ratajkowski, Subject To Change has some ladies in the kitchen, and Randy’s Roundtable chips in with Sarah Stephens. Ninety Miles From Tyranny contributes Lingerie Ladies and a Morning Mistress, and Mark Krikorian suggests this Daily Mail article on a controversial brassiere study. FOR SCIENCE! Fishersville Mike notes the imminent arrival of Jana Kramer, and Animal Magnetism is back with Rule Five Friday and the Saturday Gingermageddon.  Lowering The Boom adds some Kate Upton to the mix, and EBL remembers Annette Funicello. Also, Everyone Link Dan Collins Day with bonus art by Rubens!

A View From The Beach posted Ana Beatriz Barros, Bras Are Bad, Progress! (Kentucky), Best Werewolf Prank Ever, more on Ashley Judd, Topless Protester Confronts Shirtless President, Japanese Weirdness, and The Big Night.

Soylent Green started with the Monday Motivationer, followed by Afternooner 8, Tuesday Titillation Bambi, Humpday Hawtness, Evening Awesome Red Riding Hood, Falconsword Fursday Vintage, Chain Bra Linky Love Barking Moonbat Early Warning System, Not So Snow White, Overnighty Hillary, Corsetcare Confabulation, Evening Awesome Kimberly, Mornin’ Muffin, and the Chain Bra Linky-Love Reach-Around: RSM.

Proof Positive’s Friday Night Babe was Radha Mitchell, his Vintage Babe was Ginger Rogers, and Sex in Advertising this week is Refreshingly Brazilian! At Dustbury, it’s Paulina Porizkova.

The DaleyGator’s DaleyBabes included Shay Diggs, Zulay Henao, Pat Benatar, Momoka Kanou, Catalina White, random hotness, Marielle Roselli, Lisa Morales, Tamala Jones, Maya Koizumi, Jayde Nicole, Caitlyn Winters, and Christine Nguyen.

    I fell in love/lust(same thing at 16yo) with D. Harry around 1980. It helped that I enjoyed her singing as well.

    You can’t have a photo of Debbie Harry without embedding a video!

    The end of disco, the beginning of New Wave and growing up in Houston. That was a wild time. And you’re right, it was a GREAT time to be a teenager.

    I always preferred Dreaming, myself. Closer to the sound on their first two albums.

    Just a few comments and thoughts regarding Rule 5.

    Let me preface this by saying that I’m not bothered (much) by Rule 5 and that I have no big issues with some cheesecake/eye candy (and sometimes appreciate it myself).

    First of all, just a thought, without referencing any particular Rule 5 post on any website: is there anything more tarty and tacky on just about any garment on any woman than leopard spot prints? Seriously, any piece of clothing fitted with leopard spots, on whatever woman and however cut, worn or combined, it just seems to be impossible to make it look any good and not just plain tacky. It seems to be leopard spots just can’t be made to look classy and sexy. Just tarty.

    Then, a few honest questions. I guess this blog will have caught flack for Rule 5 many times already, and I do not intend these questions as an attack.

    First, is it not perhaps true that Rule 5 to some extent (?) appeals to the baser interests/natures of people (men in particular) and not so much to higher interests? While I think much of the feminist ‘objectification’ rhetoric is nonsense, do not perhaps Rule 5 and similar things somewhat appeal to and broadcast a view of women as merely candy for mens’ eyes and things of beauty and arousal? I do sometimes feel like Rule 5 is maybe a bit of a ‘base’ aspect of culture.

    Second, what would people here say about young men (teenagers, perhaps), like possibly your sons, viewing things like Rule 5? And what about your daughters, sisters, wives et cetera being in things like these?

    Welcome to the internet junk drawer, where concepts are stored. One would find hot babes (rule 5 stuff), photogenic dolls, red meat and other cool junk
