IT’S HAPPENED.

Someone has finally ranked the world’s heads of states according to hotness.

The website Hottest Heads of State bills itself as “scientific and unbiased” and ranks a whopping 199 world leaders in order of hotness.

So, who is the ridiest world leader?

That would be His Majesty King Jigme Khesar Namgyel Wangchuck of Bhutan.

But where does Enda Kenny rank?

That would be 71st.

That’s still technically in the top half of the list, but crucially below the likes of Alexis Tsipras (10th), Barack Obama (13th),Vladimir Putin (32nd) and David Cameron (56th).

But…

It is above Queen Elizabeth II (87th), Angela Merkel (92nd) and Francois Hollande (100th).

Silver linings and all that.

Meanwhile, Michael D. Higgins is languishing away in 166th place…

Whatever.
