  3. That’s great, I’m glad you liked it. You know I could really go on, but somewhat limited by the six panels!

  4. Are those Starbucks cups? Mmmmm, Starbucks…

  5. Good eye! Special Christmas Starbucks cups!

  6. I am something of a Starbucks fiend. Just when I thought this cartoon couldn’t get any better, you throw in one of my addictions…

    Interesting comment about Titus and Lucius. Some of my favorite characters in a T.V. show at the moment. Thanks for sharing all the neat info! Please keep it coming…

  9. This one was really great. I kept waiting for her to bonk him on the head, so surprising too.

  10. Thanks! I had to edit the bonk on the head because I ran out of panels!

  11. I am not fully briefed on nerd cheesecake. =]

    Audrey Hepburn, not Grace Kelly?

    Ok, what about from the other side of the gender divide?
    Gordon Brown, not Tony Blair?

    Comment by London — January 12, 2009 @ 2:26 pm

  12. Now your getting it! Grace Kelly = stunning beauty, was mad to find out she was married when I was 9 years old and my mom told me. Audrey Hepburn = cute, waiflike, not intimidating but alluring.

    Other side of the coin? My gender is not as capable of recognizing in other guys what women find appealing. Frankly I’m surprised most of us procreate at all, we are quite disgusting. But if I hazard a guess, I would say the male equivalent of nerd beefcake is the actor who plays Seth Cohen on the “OC” or Jake Gyllenhall PRE personal trainer, or great Canadian Ryan Reynolds as well before the gym, and regular beefcake would be Clive Owen or Daniel Craig.

    And you are correct, Blair is waiflike and Brown is a hard ass when he’s not on Youtube picking his nose, so you are on the right track there.

  14. Male version.

    Regular cheesecake = Eric Dane (better known as McSteamy from Grey’s Anatomy) or Brad Pitt

    Nerd Cheesecake = Zach Braff (the male lead in Scrubs) or Edward Norton, post American History X

  15. I think you are all over it. But you must dilineate between nerds who are attractive to the opposite sex, and people who attract nerds. That is the subtle distinction. Though I came with the term when I was working at a telecom company to describe a gal that was both hot and nerdy, it was her legion of adoring techies that followed her that made a critical component of the theory. Though “nerdiness”, which is associated with intelligence with is linked with not being shallow, enables nerds to think they have a shot when they really don’t (because ostensibly smart people look beyond the shallow characteristics of looks, car, etc., and value intelligence, sense of humor as attractive, which is generally true), true nerd cheesecake must be earmarked by the adoration of nerds who would, if given the choice in their wildest dreams, opt for nerd over regular cheesecake. It’s a subtle, but important distinction!

  16. Glad you added the “post American History X”, neo-fascist musclemen so do not fit with the term ‘nerd cheesecake’.

    Thanks for dropping by an providing some illumination on the matter. I have my classifications down now I reckon. 🙂

  17. “I think you are all over it…”

    Now I am confused again… 😉

  18. It’s very scientific…

  19. “…true nerd cheesecake must be earmarked by the adoration of nerds who would, if given the choice in their wildest dreams, opt for nerd over regular cheesecake.”

    I don’t think I grasped this part fully at first. Now, I love it even more! I am proud to be Nerd Cheesecake!

  20. Like a badge of honor, that’s the only way to wear it. Also, nerd cheesecake traditionally trades up when it comes to, what’s the word…”mating”.

  21. Now that is just plain funny.


    Thank you Anthony

  22. So funny – even nerd cheesecakes deserve a great match! Check out my blog for help finding a great match, nerd or not! http://www.astramtch.com/blog

    Nerd cheesecake traditionally trade up when it comes to partners, and they always have legions of nerds on stand-by just in case.

  24. Great fun. Thanks very much Unemployed Dad. You know I have a job waiting for you at the convenience store any time you’re ready.


    Thank you Ram. I may take you up on that!

  27. Trades up? Please, explain further…

    It’s like in the movie “Closer”, Natalie Portman (whose role as a stripper made me super uncomfortable because she’s such a waif-like ingenue, almost girlish) was bouncing between Jude Law and Clive Owen, trading up from her nerd cheesecake level to actual male beefcake. Or when Brad Pitt was with Juliette Lewis a few years back…or Ryan Reynolds and Alanis Morissette.

    It happens because hot guys don’t have to choose between nerd and regular, and regular can be really high maintenance and annoying, whereas nerd can be a lot more fun as they are typically less shallow. Though sometimes I think it’s a strategy for hot guys to date nerd cheesecake, it makes them appear less shallow (not just about looks, will respect them for who they are) to hot girls and paves the way for them to have an easier time getting regular cheesecake (Ryan Reynolds and Scarlett Johansson, Brad Pitt and every girl since Juliette Lewis).

    It doesn’t work the same way back, only regular cheesecake can date male nerds, i.e. Christie Brinkley and Billy Joel, or Julia Roberts and Lyle Lovett, because their ego orientation allows for it (i.e. “everybody knows I’m super hot and can have any guy I want”). The nerd cheesecake typically doesn’t have as much confidence in their hotness and compensate with boyfriends who are hotter than they are, which cycles me back to the second paragraph…

    Hope that helps.

  29. Tom Hanks is Nerd Cheesecake!!! Right? I think I’ve got it for men. And yes, besides being fun to read, the explanation helped.

    Comment by j.k.lynn — January 20, 2009 @ 12:01 am

  30. You tell me, are you a nerd with a crush on Tom Hanks? I could see that though, he has a charisma about him.
