I know we’re not supposed to pick favorites among the heavenly hosts, but here are my top ten anyway…

1. Moroni
2. Michael
3. Gabriel
4. The one who wrestled Jacob
5. The one from Rent
6. The one from Buffy
7. The one from Led Zeppelin t-shirts
8. Michael Landon
9. Joel Pineiro
10. Warren Worthington III

I can't believe the one who appeared to Alma the younger gets no love from you!

Warren Worthington deserves to be higher than Michael Landon! He's got ACTUAL wings!!!

Matsby said...

Yeah, the one who stopped Alma the Younger is okay. And the one who stopped Abraham from killing his kid is cool too.

But are they in the top ten? Eh... No.

And the reason Warren Worthington got knocked down a few notches is just because of his questionable relationship with Apocalypse a couple years back.

I'm surprised the Victoria's Secret Angels didn't make your list.

You might even classify them as legion...for they are many.

That you left off Paul Hogan only proves that you didn't make it to the end of the movie.

Goody said...

Clarence's dive into the icy water to save Jimmy Stewart from a aterlife in the Telestial Kingdom didn't earn him a spot in the top 10?

That's just unamerican.

Christy said...

I vote for Clarence.

Jason Miller said...

Not a single one of Charlie's? Seriously?

Roma Downey and Della Reese would be very disappointed for not being on the list. After all, they filmed in Utah.
Besides, if you just mentioned the Touched by an Angel stars, you'd include: Bill Cosby and lots of other cool people as angels. Then, in the last episode, they also had God on. That's a MAJOR cameo appearance.

I think Datin'Kait is on the right track here.

Zach Parker said...

Joel Pineiro? I honestly haven't been that impressed. How about Kendry Morales, Bobby Abreu, Hideki Matsui, or Jered Weaver? (I'm still bitter about losing Lackey and Figgins)

I was linked here by a friend.

The "angel" from Led Zeppelin t-shirts is a reworked version of the sun god Apollo from William Rimmer's "Evening: Fall of Day", used as part of the logo for their Swan Song label; and according to Robert Plant it's intended to be Icarus the son of Daedalus.

BUT, if it makes you feel any better, a lot of conspiracy theorists believe it's supposed to be Lucifer/Apollyon!

I like Castiel from the not-so-popular show "Supernatural" that I enjoy and you would too if you don't already watch it. With you being a Buffy fan and all.

Found you from Brock's blog. Very funny stuff here!

I like the one in the outfield. He was also in back to the future. Guess he was moonlighting there.

Matti Kaye said...

what about the one from angels in america?

The Hays Family said...

I just found your blog and now I'm hooked. Love that Angel from Rent made your top ten list. Although many find it unquestionably inappropriate- it's my favorite Broadway show.
