Possible? It Could Happen.

The other week we got into a conversation with Corey's moms about people we found attractive; musicians, movie stars, sports figures, etc. We joked about how some had aged and our interest in them faded because they just became too old. Harrison Ford is a perfect example. Hot as Indiana Jones; not so hot as Mr. Calista Flockhart.

During the midst of the conversation, one of the moms took us by surprise. "You know who else is hot? Kim Possible."

We reached back into our minds to try and remember what movie or band she was in.

"Wait a minute...isn't she a cartoon character?"

She nodded. "Yep, she and Jessica Rabbit are totally doable."

We all laughed on silly it was that she could find an animated character attractive. In a world of utterly hot folks to put on your freebie list, why would anyone pick someone where even the most remote of chances are...well, Kimpossible?

She defended herself quickly and asked if we had ever found a cartoon character attractive. I thought back and realized...shit, guilty as charged.

Every Saturday morning as a kid, my crush would join his friends for an hour of battling the Legion of Doom. With a bulging chest, pecs to die for and a nice form fitting Lycra suit, Aquaman was definitely the hottie of his time. And watch that guy run...woof!

I'm a huge fan of superhero powers, though I seemed to be attracted to the one guy with slightly limited uses. Though skiing on the backs of manta rays is cool, there's not much action one can do if all the danger is land based.

Besides I have a tendency to prune up real bad when in water for long periods of time.

It turns out that in the comic books, my prince did eventually find his bride. I'm sure she could appreciate the aquatic culture more than I, so it's probably better for both of us in the long run.

Did you ever fall for a cartoon character or is that limited to Corey's nut-job parents?

First...Aquaman? Really? Not even hairy Aquaman? (http://www.monitorduty.com/mdarchives/Aquaman%20fish%20army.jpg)

Second, I have to confess that the list of hot cartoon characters for me is way long. Daphne from Scooby Doo, Betty Rubble, Princess Jasmine from Aladdin, the Baroness from G.I. Joe, and...in a confession that probably warrants psychotherapy...Smurfette.

It's not my fault that I was discovering my sexuality while watching Cheetarah on Thundercats...

There is some really rude Thundercats porn fanfic on the net if you look for it. Not that I've looked for it you understand.

I totally LOVED Aquaman. He was my favorite! I can't believe I'm not the only one.

I knew we were kindred spirits.

I have to admit a bit of a crush on Jessica Rabbit too. Those curves!

Jessica Rabbit is the obvious one, but some of the superhero girls on Justice League are pretty hot.

The Aquaman on there is much tougher too.

I am almost embarassed to tell you how many hits I got on my blog after posting something about Save Kim Possible some time back how many Google hits I got from things like, "Kim Possible Naked", "Kim Possible Bukkake" etc.

So, no I don't think finding a "crush" on a comic character weird... some people can obviously take it to that level.

WonderWoman always kind of did it for me. Don't know whether it was the big hair or the technicolor bodice.

Meanwhile, i think Tony needs professional help. Having a crush on Smurfette? Man, that's just sick!

Kim is hot, but she's still in high school. Jasmine is too; and Esmeralda in the Disney Hunchback of Notre Dame. I was also into the girls in the Archie comics as a kid. So either this is normal or we'll all freaks.

Peter Parker and/or Spiderman. This has been since I was like 5 (I'm 36 now), so it isn't just a reaction to the beauty that is Tobey McGuire. I like the humor and the sarcasm, even before I really knew what that was.

Penny Century from Love and Rockets. Hottest comic book character ever. Oh, and Miss Grundy from Archie comics.
