Today’s quiz: Who’s the sexiest man ever?

Is it…

a)  Patrick Swayze in 'Road House'?

b)  Patrick Swayze in 'Ghost'?

c)  Patrick Swayze in 'Dirty Dancing'?

d)  Patrick Swayze in 'To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything, Julie Newmar'?

e)  Patrick Swayze in 'North and South'?

Your best answer please (except for that one guy in the back, screaming 'Donnie Darko' — get some help, dude) but remember — though we all mourn the only man who ever truly rocked a mullet, no amount of grief, good will or genuine affection can ever excuse 'She's Like the Wind.'  I'm sorry but that's just how it is.

Against all odds, Patrick Swayze always brought a weird kind of dignity to even the cheesiest material, a skill dating back to this hilariously awkward underwear ad he did as a young lad in 1974:

 

Oh Patrick, then and now, we kid because we love.  You made a lot of people wish they were Jennifer Grey for a night and that took talent!  Rest in peace.
