CHICAGO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – There are a lot of beefcakes out there, and now they’re finally uniting. quite simply posts a compilation of famous men who share their monikers with meat, such as Meatloaf, Kobe Bryant, Angus Young, and Jon Hamm.

The website came about after a discussion about eating Kevin Bacon, which lead co-creators Aaron Kraus, Henry Birdseye, and Vince Portacci to drum up a list of every famous man with a meat name they could think of.

So far they have 31, and Portacci says, “I feel like my brain hurts at the amount of time put into this.”

The guys have been Googling “meat names” and have even been studying “meat charts” with juicy butcher’s cuts in hopes of finding new entries.

However, they say there’s a “pretty strict code of ethics” regarding who’s allowed on.

Kraus explains, “If you can order the name off a menu and not sound stupid I’ll accept it.”
