Snape Celebrates National Poetry Month

If loving Alan Rickman is wrong, I don't want to be right. And many of our readers agree with me!

While posting her list of character crushes, Maren said, "I look over that list, and realize that most of my fantasy character crushes are assholes and/or evil. Troubling. Which reminds me, add Professor Snape to that list."

Fist-the-Dead clearly agreed. In a later post on the same topic, she said, "I was dragged to "Harry Potter" by my friends thinking it would be totally lame. Then I saw Snape. I have to agree that he is an object of lust. He was like Trent Reznor, but a Trent Reznor who could give me detention for not wearing panties. And that my friends, is a good thing."

Love of Alan Rickman: clearly, it's a sign of fabulous taste. After all, the Smart Bitches agree with me--so much that they've posted an MP3 of Rickman reading Shakespeare's Sonnet 130. Hurray! This has got to be every brainy bombshell's secret fantasy. Shakespeare and Professor Snape, together at last?

Yes, please.

So take this moment, before April ends, to celebrate National Poetry Month. Melt a little, courtesy of the Bard and the Potions Professor.

I think he's a wonderful actor but I guess he's a little too good because I can't stand Professor Snape! I know I'm in the minority though lol.

I have listened to that recording approximately 77.77 times in the last week. I'm a puddle. His intonation of "reeks" and "speaks" and "by Heaven" asphyxiate me.

I showed my daughter, 14, this picture of SNAPE on your blog and she was like, wow, he is so handsome!

I had NO idea he was so yummy!!

Don't worry, I won't steal your crush. I am madly in love with Hugh Jackman at the moment. It's a secret passion but my husband knows and is okay with it... as long as I stick to my adage: Honey you are the internal hero, he is the external shell.

If you had not posted that this was Alan Rickman, I NEVER would have guessed! Yikes! He looks...very...yummy!
