Benjamin’s Hard Hitting Questions: Which X-Man Would You Be?
July 16, 2009

Well, it seems that the nerd dams have burst ever since I’ve let Shmathan and Sharker contribute to the blog, but you won’t find me complaining.  Frankly, when there’s a party, I’m always inclined to join.  And, to be frank, nerd parties are something of which I know all too well.

For example, if you were Cyclops, you could accessorize in the most fabulous of ways:
