On whom do you have your most embarrassing/scariest crush?
Okay, it’s probably grounds for divorce, but I totally have a thing for Lex Luthor on Smallville. Yes, my husband is one of the biggest Superman fans. And yes, superheroes are fine and dandy, saving the poor and helpless, doing good, blah blah blah.
But sometimes a bad guy is fun too. Not all bad guys are truly bad, and Lex seems a little darker and more complicated than farmboy Clark with his picket fence, happily married parents, and high school freaking sweetheart. Barf.
Lex drinks scotch, drives fast, plays the piano, and dresses better than I do. He’s got a wicked sense of humor, all kinds of daddy issues, and for some reason, I don’t think he wouldn’t steal all my hair gel.
Maybe most importantly…. he’s got this sexy bump on the back of his head. I know it sounds weird… I certainly thought it was weird at first. Ron (my husband and fan of all things Superman) has all 7 seasons of Smallville on DVD and we’ve been watching them in order since about December. Around about Season 2, I recognized the bump and felt this strange desire to lick it. I accidentally told Ron, which wasn’t the best idea. He was not amused by my attraction to the sworn enemy of his most beloved hero. I tried to explain it to him, but he was firm in his lack of understanding.
Imagine my relief when perusing the boards at Television Without Pity, when I discovered a lexicon of fantalk. Lo and behold, the sexy bump has a name. It’s formally known as the “Knob of Sexitude” and is defined as that little bump on the back of [Lex Luthor's] head that all fangirls want to lick.
So at least I’m not alone in my twisted crush.
