List #41: Men whom I can't take seriously after hearing the sound of their voice

1. Mike Tyson. Big strong man with the voice of a 12 year old girl.
2. David Beckham. Please, David, shhhh....
3. Bill Simmons. You know they say some people have a face made for radio? The Sports Guy has a voice made for print.

any others?

Absolutely agree on Simmons. I was excited when I figured out how to listen to his podcast at work. Excited, and then horrified. Jeez.

George W. Bush?

I don't know that I've ever heard Beckham talk. That's disappointing.

Yeah Simmons just sounds like such a wuss, to use a middle-school term. I can't handle the podcasts!

Oh and I couldn't take W seriously ever since he fell off that Segway.

As for Beckham, he has this soft, squeaky voice- hope that you never have to hear it, it really ruins the mystique :)

Walter Payton of the Chicago Bears had the same thing as Tyson. Very manly until you heard his high-pitched voice.

I'm just the opposite, really. Folks don't expect a low baritone-upper bass from me.

I don't think I've ever heard Walter Payton speak, but I definitely would have never expected a girly voice.

I am so with you on Beckham. He is the yummiest piece of Yum, but not even the Brit accent can save that man!
