It's My Civic Duty

It's a long weekend up here where I am and I'm exhausted from trying to keep up with my kids. Pool parties, sleep overs, football games with streakers. 

I have no energy. At this point, my idea of fun is fresh sheets and a soft bed. I don't even care if anyone is in it. I'm tired yo'.

I'm so bushed I don't even have the energy to settle the age old Canadian debate my kids are trying to suck me into.

Who is hotter:

Ryan Gosling or Ryan Reynolds.


It takes a lot of energy to analyze that much pretty. Energy I am currently trying to conserve because I need it to shake the water out of my ears from being repeatedly dunked in the pool on Saturday night by one teenaged kid after another. 

I asked Facebook who was hotter. Facebook was of no help. My kids? Split down the middle. My husband? He can't keep either of them straight and insists the one with the bigger boobs is prettier. 

A Canadian long weekend is never complete with out a good old fashioned debate about the Ryans. Until hockey season starts, it's either argue about this or local politics. And dear lord, I don't know if I can handle that much boob talk.

Consider this argument my civic duty on this here Civic holiday


Being a Canadian is so terribly hard sometimes.

Gosling, hands down.

Don't get me wrong, Reynolds is hot, but I just find Ryan Gosling much more attractive.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBecki

Gosling is "take home to meet momma" hot. Reynolds is "do wonderfully dirty things to" hot.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterDorieF

Definitely Reynolds. He looks grown-up and masculine and he's smokin'. Case closed. :D

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterMichelle

Reynolds. Definitely Reynolds.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSarah

The one who DOES NOT shave his chest is automatically hotter. :-)

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKari

I have no idea who these guys are? isn't that bottom guy with the crooked boobs the guy from 2 guys a girl and a Pizza place?
Better question, what is today's Holiday called? Here it's a Provincial Holiday, YAY! Happy New Brunswick day.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkyooty

Funny, for me Reynolds is the take-home to momma one and Gosling is the one to do naughty things with, then again I'd like to do naughty things to both of them, maybe even at the same time. Oh my!

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJen

Ryan Reynolds hands down.

Gosling. He's got a boyish charm and quite frankly, Reynolds' face totally undoes what is under his shirt for me. ;)

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBC

I would have easily said Ryan Gosling until I saw Ryan Reynold's hairy chest, if that is truly his chest, then he wins hands down. Drool.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAlwaysARedhead

I heard Reynolds has to paint his abs sometimes. Gosling pulls people out of burning cars and knits. Now don't get me wrong, I wouldn't kick either out of bed but Gosling is my vote.

Reynolds. No competition.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNikki

150% Gosling.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNichole

I have to go with Ryan Reynolds. He's dreamy!

No wait! Ryan Gosling! He's dreamier!!!

No, I'm going back to Reynolds. He's built like...

Then again so is Ryan Gosling...

I'm of no help! They're both so pretty...

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterHeidi Eckl

I was so sure of my answer. Reynolds. And when I looked at the first two pictures, I was confident there was no way I was wrong. When I compared the second two pictures....my brain went to mush and I forgot the question.

I think Reynolds, but I'm damn glad they're both here.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterangi

I stick with my first choice of Ryan Reynolds.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterThe Redneck Princess

See, Reynolds has that look like the guy from Tangled. "The Smolder." Like he's trying to really work it. Like someone said, C'mon, Reynolds, you can be sexier than that Gosling dude.

Gosling just exudes this, "Yeah, I know. I was born this way" kind of vibe.

Clear winner = Gosling

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterBexx

Gosling. No wait, Reynolds. Nope. Gosling.....nooooo Reynolds? I don't even know ... those pictures turn my words into puddles at my feet. Both?

Why must we choose?

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPeach


August 5, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterskeeve

Don't hate me, but I've never seen the fascination with Gosling. He's dorky looking. Sure he's got a nice body, but no thanks. Not a huge fan of Reynolds, either, but he's my pick between the two. Now just don't get me started on Bradley Cooper. Yum!

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKelly

Reynolds is way better! Gosling is a bit feminine for my tastes.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterLex Lemon

Reynolds. Definitely Reynolds. There's something almost girlie-pretty about Gosling and that turns me off. Reynolds is man-pretty and has sexy chest hairs.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterSusannahS


August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJessicaJ

Reynolds!! I actually think they are both hot, but for me- Ryan Reynolds has ALWAYS been hot.. While Ryan Gosling wasn't hot until Crazy Stupid Love and the whole photocropped moment. And then I was all Wow, when did he get drool worthy? So all that to say Reynolds wins just for the sheer luck of always being hot.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKelly- Momma Chaos

Do we have to choose.... we want BOTH!!!! But if we must, I would choose Reynolds!

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTC

My best friend went to school with Gosling. I have it on good authority he was a bit of an arse back then.... but oh... soooooo.... pretty! :)

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterA.

Gosling makes me drool. Reynolds is okay from the neck down but I fell in love with Ryan Gosling in The Notebook.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterPaula

I am not really into either (I know), but my son and Ryan G have the same birthday so I'm going with him.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterZak

Reynolds, hot and funny for the win!

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJo

Reynolds! No question. Hands down.

August 5, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Without being able to to do the adequate, err, road testing of each individual, I'll have to go with Reynolds because *droooooooool*

August 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterNicole

Oh man! It is a hard choice but I am going to go with Reynolds. I like dark over blond :)

Now if we added Hugh Jackman in the list there would be no contest ;)

August 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterStephanie

Wait, what? I'm sorry. Was somebody talking...?

August 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTerri

Reynolds- I love the quick comebacks and lots of other... traits :)

August 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterShina

In the second set of pictures of the guys? The first guy is already showing signs of the dreaded "beer belly". If he's as fit as he thinks he is he wouldn't look slightly puggy around the middle when he's sitting down.

And I apologize. I have absolutely NO idea who these guys are. I'm guessing actors or underwear models. It's all the same.

August 6, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterKaren

I always thought Reynolds was hotter, hands down. I just didn't care for Gosling's look. And then I saw Crazy Stupid Love, and I started to like Gosling. Then I read about some of the just regular, nice-guy things he does. And now I think I'm team G.

August 7, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterkootnygirl

I we can agree that I dont think we have to choose. But since you asked I like me a bad boy and Gosling seems to fit that image. Am I the only one who needed a shower after this?

August 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterAlma

no contest -- Ryan Reynolds.

August 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterJulia

Reynolds. Hands down.

August 7, 2013 | Unregistered Commenterchantelle

I'm rather 'meh' about both of them but then anyone who knows me would know that it is Hugh Jackman for me all the way - Hubby calls him my second husband.

I read the above comments with interest as Beautiful B would go with Reynolds, she has dragged me to the cinema so she can swoon at him, but I cannot see how Gosling has a beer belly - all I see is a six pack on someone sat down who isn't sat ramrod straight up. If that is a beer belly I am thinking I need to tell my Hubby that he looks pregnant....lol

August 7, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterTina @ ribenamusings

I'm Australian and don't know who either of them are. But they're both hot. Can I have them please?

August 8, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterChristina

i dunno... reynolds is pretty to look at, but there is something about gosling that makes him so much sexier.

August 9, 2013 | Unregistered Commentermissloopy

Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds. Reynolds.
Did I say Reynolds? ;-)

August 10, 2013 | Unregistered CommenterVee

Hmm. That is a toss-up. Guess I'll just have to keep looking until I decide!
