What's your first reaction when you see this photo? Our estimated results:

92 percent say it is adorable, precious, delightful or, in the parlance of the UK, bonny

51 percent are thinking "get your mitts off my man/lady"

37 percent are wishing Speedos were still the uniform de rigueur in swimming

20 percent remembered reading this amusing Pat Forde story about Lochte being "eye candy" and are all, "yup"

.05 percent say, "it's nice, I guess, but it's not Dutch field hockey team nice"
