[Hey guys! I'm on vacation this week, so please enjoy this I Love Television™ classic from 2011, in which I talk waaaay too much about my nipples. Good luck!—Humpy]
IN A WEEK filled with crappy season finales, there's one TV show I hate—yet "hate" to see go. Yes, this week brings the final episode EVER of Smallville [which in 2015 you can watch on iTunes]. As a young TV columnist, I grew up with this hilariously operatic teen drama featuring post-pubescent hunky hunkster Clark Kent (played by the muscly if not particularly talented Tom Welling). I've written umpteen columns about Smallville, all of which have devolved into lengthy, practically unreadable essays involving Welling whipping off his shirt, accompanied by intense descriptions of the height, circumference, and hue of his nipples.
Well, those days are kaput, my friends—and not because my previous columns have landed me on several pedophile watch lists. Just as Superboy has grown into a SuperMAN, I, too, have matured. No longer do I drool like a hormonal tween at a Justin Bieber concert—because frankly? Tom Welling is like 34 years old now (!!!) and his nips look like shit.
The show lost my interest a few seasons ago—thanks to deteriorating storylines, and the departure of Michael Rosenbaum (Lex Luthor) and the maniacally hot Kristin Kreuk (Lana Lang). In fact, I wasn't even upset when Welling stopped taking off his shirt, because, as mentioned earlier, his nips have become a national embarrassment.
Where once these teats were a model of structural perfection—a luminous coral hue, areolae 1.2 inches (30 mm) in circumference, and nipples five-stacked-quarters high—they are now a sad leathery shade of brown, cracked around the edges, and drooping in unceremonious defeat. ARE WE TO BELIEVE THESE ARE THE NIPPLES OF A SUPERMAN??
"Hey, hey, Humpy! Easy on Tom Welling's nipples, already!" I hear you cry. "You're no spring chicken. I seriously doubt your nipples are much better!" OH, YOU WANT TO SEE MY NIPPLES, DO YOU? Well, here! WHOOSH! (That's the sound of me yanking my shirt up, BTW.)
Observe the nipples of a god!! As you can plainly see, MY nippolinis are the stuff ancient sculptors would spend their lives trying to recreate. My areolae? A hot 25 mm in diameter. The color? A perfect blend of eumelanin (brown pigment) and pheomelanin (red pigment)—or in layperson's terms, the color of a glorious sunrise. As for my nipples? Look up "perky" in the dictionary, and you'll see their picture! At their most erect, they rise (majestically, I might add) to a whopping 14 mm—long enough to hang your average hat or participate in a ring-toss competition. They often cause those who are 5'4" to receive ocular damage. Why, yes—they DO have the ability to cut glass. And if I fall forward, it's unnecessary for me to put my hands out to catch myself—THAT'S how perky my nipples are!
That being said, I will absolutely watch the final episode of Smallville to see what we've all been waiting for: Clark finally donning his Superman suit. (For which I've graciously volunteered my services as Welling's "nipple double." NO NEED FOR THANKS. Just wear eye protection.)
