Looks like BuzzFeed finally abandoned the whole "monkeys with typewriters" experiment and is back to paying crack-heads to write their content.
 
2013-09-24 07:47:51 AM
Well, it's its real, it would have worked on me and they would have gotten 93 clicks as I wanted to read what they would say next!

You mean the homos, chicks, and JJ apologists? He is far from the best onscreen Sherlock Holmes.

"premiere", not "premier". And do women really go for this ... peculiar... look?

I hate slideshows, but that was hilarious.  Well played, Canada.com.

Hmm, not bad, but "Homos" really gives it away.

My cousin is bat-shiate crazy for Benedict Cummerbund - I don't get the attraction.  Good anti-slideshow, though.
 
2013-09-24 09:19:51 AM
I didn't get the Benedict love either. Until I watched Sherlock. Now I want him to plow me.

I went to see Pacific Rim last night at the local cheap theater. (Pointlessly late mini-review: It only works if you ignore all spoken dialogue and pretend it's a foreign movie in a language you don't understand.) It's full of Big McLargeHuge slabs of man muscle who I'm sure I'm supposed to find attractive. But the thing is, they are bland, boring, and I seriously had a hard time telling them apart. They exhibited no discernible personality traits. The Cumberbatch doesn't look like anybody else. He appears to have a personality. He exhibits charm and some amount of intelligence. He has a unique sex appeal. When he smiles, he doesn't look like a sex robot baring its plastic teeth at you.

SuperLorie: I didn't get the Benedict love either. Until I watched Sherlock. Now I want him to plow me.


Yeah, that's what all the ladies say.

I'm hard-pressed to think of an actor/character combination that women find as irresistible as Cumberbatch/Sherlock. Hell, I'm straight and I would probably do him.

He looks like an alien. A retarded alien. A retarded alien with fetal alcohol syndrome. A retarded alien with fetal alcohol syndrome who was recently hit by a bus. A bus full of ugly people. Carrying ugly sticks. And then the ugly tree fell on all of them.

Not to sound twee, but it ceased to be solely about looks after about age 15, and expanded to include stuff like voice, mannerisms, personality, and behavior.
 
2013-09-24 10:10:03 AM
Yeah, he does look like his mother and father were sister and brother, but he has a deep voice and oozes gravitas in that Sherlock role, so I guess I see the attraction.

That last sentence made me snort coffee all over my keyboard. Well played.

Patrick Stewart is extremely attractive. I find Benedict Cumberbatch attractive as well, but I know my tastes in men have always been a bit unusual. I don't go for beefcake boys -- I love my men tall, slim, and geeky looking, when possible. Glasses are a special bonus.

I can't believe that I know this, but the chest was real, not prosthetic.

I'm glad to say I don't know if the mullet was real or wig.

When someone gets around to 3D printing you a Benedict Cumberbatch, you'll understand.  Until that day comes, let me explain it thusly:

Men don't have an obvious, put on display item like boobs.  Women can't judge a man on his trousers alone, so they look for secondary traits like voice, eyes, smile, personality.  There's a whole sitcom genre based around this, the "fat schlub married to hottie wife" genre.  It ain't the fatty's expertise in using his colossal tallywhacker that gained him a second glance, even in real life.  Now you'll say "no, in real life his Rolex and stock portfolio did", to which I point out many everyday poor schlubs with hot girlfriends.

Benedict Cumberbatch may be goofy looking, but he's got it where it counts.

Different people like different things in eye candy, who knew?

OK. So some people have a fetish for retarded-looking aliens with fetal alcohol syndrome. I'll accept that.
