Shirtless Paul Ryan pic finally surfaces

Ryan with wife Janna on vacation in Oklahoma.

As the unflagging hunt for historical legends like Noah’s Ark and the lost city of Atlantis continue over the centuries, one highly-anticipated search has yielded a find that will be heralded for generations to come: A shirtless photo of Paul Ryan.

As soon as Mitt Romney named the dapper 42-year-old Ryan as his vice presidential running mate, the talk quickly shifted from Ryan’s stance on Medicare to his chiseled jaw line and impressive dedication to working out.

The Wisconsin Congressman is reportedly an avid follower of P90X — an intense 90-day home workout that incorporates strength training and cardio.

Speculation grew over whether or not Ryan sported a six-pack beneath that crisp, tailored shirt of his. “When would the first bare-chested photo emerge?” we all wondered.

And now: it’s here.

TMZ obtained a shirtless photo of him from an Oklahoma vacation he took with his wife, Janna, about six years ago — before he even got hooked on P90X. And it looks like Ryan was in great shape even before the workout regime “totally transformed his midsection.” Imagine what it looks like now…

Be afraid, Joe Biden’s abs, be very afraid….
