Sanjaya Malakar: The Maxim Girl of the Day

by at . Comments

This honor may be more rewarding that a spot in the finals of American Idol.

Or maybe not.

But it's certainly a lot funnier: Sanjaya Malakar is today's Maxim magazine Girl of the Day.

We know what you're thinking: Isn't new sex tape star Olivia Mojica a much better choice? And, well, isn't Sanjaya a dude?

The answers, of course, are: "yes" and "most likely." But here's how Maxim defends its selection:

You've no one but the Devil's lawyer to blame for this androgynous American Idol stowaway, who, despite being detested by the judges, somehow remains in the hunt for the show's coveted prize as this year's top 40 footnote. We stopped watching after the auditions (the only digestible part of the show), but it's our understanding that we have Sanjaya to thank for the "ponyhawk," a hair-novation destined to tickle your underarm as you noogie hordes of copycat hipsters.

Makes sense to us.

But if we were going the Idol route for a featured female, Alaina Alexander or Haley Scarnato would come before Sanjaya. That guy can't win everything.
