Zac Efron? Well…I suppose it was a poll aimed at children. I’m glad that an author and a (so far) decent politician are ranked in the top three. Random Disney stars will always have their day, the only consolation is that they will soon disappear. On a more positive note that lego portrait looks amazing, I wish I could make something as half as cool.
