Top 5 Tuesday...

Today I thought I'd start a new feature and see how that works out for me.  I think Tuesday should be Top 5 Tuesday!  I've had this idea in the works for a while, and really, it started out as one post about a disturbing trend I noticed.

Has anyone else been paying attention?  If you have, you may also have noticed a strange and somewhat disturbing trend taking place in pop culture over the last twenty or thirty years.  It started one day when I was trying to think of anyone else who was even remotely as disturbing as our #1 person this week, and I realized there was not, but there was a litany of other things that fit into the same category!

So, without further blather, I give you...

Top 5 Cross-dressing Aliens:

5)  Sally Solomon

I know, I know.  "But she's a woman!" you're saying.  Oh, no.  If you've ever watched 3rd Rock From the Sun, you'd know that she didn't get to pick her body when she was transported to Earth, and in fact isn't a woman at all.  So, although she may look the part, she's actually a man wearing the whole body of a woman.  That's where much of the show's humor comes from.

4)  E.T.

If you aren't like me and you saw E.T., then you remember this.  This was the image that made you check your closet for aliens before you went to bed...and maybe made you distrust anyone in a wig.  But it is yet another alien in drag.  And can you believe there are no pictures from this scene on the internet?

3)  Condoleeza Rice

Not an alien, you say?  Just look at that photo and tell me I'm wrong.  She looks like she's thinking about eating everyone in the White House right now.  And have you seen that Adam's apple?  Okay, okay, this spot was going to go to Rosie O'Donnell, but I couldn't find an image of her wearing anything even remotely feminine...

4)  A.L.F.

This is another one I could find no actual photos of.  I seem to remember Alf dressing in Kate's clothes on more than one occasion.  You remember, Willie flips over in bed and Alf is rummaging through Kate's drawers, putting on her jewelry to go with his hat or gown.  And yet, no photos of this online.  Someone should remedy this problem.  But yet again, this is an alien in women's clothing.  Am I the only one who thinks this trend is disturbing.

By now you're probably thinking, "But Justin, you left out someone...someone glaringly obvious to anyone who has ever looked at a Marquee on Halloween.  Oh, no I haven't.

1).  Dr. Frank N Furter

Yes, that sweet transvestite from Transexual Transylvania sashays his way into the number one spot with high kicks and unabashed sexiness.  I mean, look at those legs!  Lipstick?  Hair?  And the corset!  It's Tim Curry at his best and most disturbing.  And his most popular.

So there you have it, folks.  Viewtiful_Justin's Top 5 Tuesday picks for the top five cross-dressing aliens.  Were there any I missed?  Anyone you thought should have been higher or lower on the list?

Feel free to discuss!  And, as always, I'm taking submission for Top 5 Tuesday lists you'd like to see in the future.  Nothing is off-limits.  See you next week!

I love the Picture Show! More to the point, I want to be Dr. FNF for Halloween.

Not the one pictured, but rather the more modest one with the green lab coat and pearls 8)

Certainly Mork had to have been in drag at one point... or twelve.

I thought of that, too...but for some reason it never stuck in my brain long enough to research it.
