LIAM or PIERCE: you be the judge

There is absolutely no redeeming social value (or knitting content, for that matter) to be found in this post. The eye candy should make up for that.

Help save a friendship! Nancy and I are locked in a fierce battle. Yes, two grown married women are arguing over which married movie star is better. No, the two grown married writing knitting women will never in a million years meet either of the happily married movie stars (nor do they probably really want to because then they'd have to buy all new clothes, get their hair done, shave their legs, buy shoes, etc., etc.) but still the battle rages.

So it's up to you. Which Irishman do you prefer? Are you all about Liam or does Pierce float your boat? Tell us in the Comments section because, quite frankly, I think Nancy is inflating Pierce's numbers. This is clearly Liam Territory. (Right, THE Wendy?)

Our future is in your hands.

And, for the record, when was the last time you saw Mr. 007 with his shirt off?

Who needs American Idol when you have Dueling Irishmen (who would probably love to knit if some kind woman from NJ whose initials are BB [no, not the other kind woman from NJ whose initials are NH] would take time from her busy schedule to teach them what was once and is on the way to become yet again a very manly art.

The polls are now open.

Who better to settle this issue than a woman natally named McKenzie-McCoy?

So while I'm waiting for THE WENDY's book to arrive, here's what I'll do:

First, I'll try out the scrawny one.

Then the brawny one.

And then, when I've sufficiently recovered, I'll report back to y'all.

It's a dirty job, but I can do it.

Fran, I like your methodology!

Barbara cheated in this post by using a photo of Liam that's taken from a weird angle so you can't really see what he looks like.

You're a remarkable woman, Fran. Always thinking of others.

You'll regret those words, Ms. Herkness. There are pictures of Liam out there that would make you forget all about What's His Name.

Okay, ladies. I have the definitive response.

One of my staff is RELATED to Pierce Brosnan and she prefers Liam. Hands down. So much for family pride.

My best friend L-B who has impeccable taste in men and yarn prefers Liam. Hands down.

Don't even think about playing the 007 card because Sean Connery is 007. Now and forever.

Just sayin'.

Barbara I will be emailing you shortly. When I find the words. :-)

Oh, Liam. Definitely Liam Neeson. That picture of him in the Rob Roy costume is absolutely wonderful. More please!

Liam has to be the winner. Not only is he a hunk but he is intelligent.

Obviously Barbara is paying people to say nice things about Liam.

While I agree with THE Wendy that Sean Connery is the definitive James Bond, if you can't have Sean, Pierce is a very good replacement. A lot better than Roger Moore or Timothy Dalton.

While Sean is The 007, I'd take Pierce over Liam any day. Pierce is definitely lovely to look at.

Put me in the Liam column. I can't resist him in a kilt.

I've been a Pierce fanatic since his "Remington Steele" days. Liam, who?
