BOSTON, Massachusetts (Reuters) -- Comedian Gilbert Gottfried, the voice of the Aflac duck in television commercials for the insurer, was crowned "unsexiest man in the world" by an alternative newspaper Tuesday.

"The parrot-voiced, pickle-faced comic is to sexy what Kryptonite is to Superman," The Boston Phoenix wrote.

New York Yankees pitcher Randy Johnson came in second followed by film critic Roger Ebert, television psychologist Dr. Phil McGraw and Fox television co-host Alan Colmes.

Even actor Brad Pitt made the list, as the newspaper's 100th-least sexy man.

Osama bin Laden clocked in at number eight.

George Steinbrenner, owner of the Yankees -- arch-rivals to the Boston Red Sox -- also made the list.

"Come on, we live in Boston, you knew it was coming," the Phoenix said.

Others included pop star Michael Jackson and nasal-voiced rapper Mike Diamond (Mike D) of the Beastie Boys.

Gottfried has had numerous television and film roles, including a year as a cast member on NBC's "Saturday Night Live."


If I NEVER hear another AFLAC commercial It'll be too soon. I can't stand them. I hate Gilbert Gottfried now because of these commercials. Prior to them he was just annoying - now he's like fingernails on a chalkboard.

I think I watch about 10 times as many Aflac commercials because Aflec is one of MLB's biggest sponsors; the commercials are on EVERY commercial break of EVERY game. It gets pretty nauseating.

"What insurance is that Yogi?"

"If you get hurt and miss work, it won't hurt to miss work."

Speechless.

Yeah, I really hate that whole "saturation" thing they try to do. It turns me off big-time to see the same commercial EVERY SINGLE TIME they take a break. Can't freakin' stand it! 8-o
