Today’s Comment Diversion comes to you via Facebook, with a suggestion made by frequent Pajiba commenter, Angeleno Ewok. AE has what what some might consider a deeply, shameful crush on actor Shia LaBeouf. Try though she might to convince others of the human Fozzie Bear’s cuteness,
she is usually mocked and derided for what she calls her “Socially Unacceptable Celebrity Crush.” But fear not, little Ewok—you are not alone. We are Pajibans, and by definition we are full of socially unacceptable desires. So today, we shall come together as one to admit our (perhaps) previously private, potentially pitiable penchants for particularly unpopular people.
I’m not afraid to get the ball rolling here…my inexplicable and embarrassing crush is the giant-lipped and physically awkward:
As if it’s not bad enough that Jemaine Clement looks like a complete dork with his hipster glasses, his giant, almost Julia Roberts-ish smile and his goofy expressions; I’ve also found myself attracted to his doofus, pretend personality on “Flight of the Conchords.” I remember watching the show and being embarrassed that I was laughing at his idiotic songs and the odd expressions and physical accompaniments. Dude is all around strange, but I kinda like it. And tell me he doesn’t rock those lips?
Your turn. Strut that nasty shame like your own “Project Runway” piece of crap.
