The end of the year is nigh and 2011 is peeping its shy little head just over the horizon, like a curious meerkat, or just like another new calendar year, if you're boring.

Below is a list of 20 well-known men. Choose which one you think best displays the qualities of a modern man. Then tell us why and remember to mention your man's name when you do.

When that's done, you can opt for your ultimate modern man skill from our list. Then when you've done that you can pat yourself on the back and have a HobNob. A chocolate one.
