So, I'm in Love with Henry Grubstick
|Christopher Gorham as "Henry Grubstick"|
In a way, Andrew Allan James is partially to blame for this because after seeing him play a hotter version of his nerd self in the latest ep of Awkward Black Girl, my infamous love of nerds has increased with a vengeance. He was the primer for what came after.
And by Gawd is this a (well-written) nerd. Henry Grubstick is an accountant and next-level mathlete who knows random stuff like the circumference of the Earth (24901.55 miles/40075.16 kilometers, thank you very much). Since he can't dress up for Halloween at work, he pulls a Superman/Clark Kent. Henry goes to restaurants inspired by the European Middle Ages, and critiques the mutton. He drinks milk to coat his stomach before he imbibes alcohol...and then gets drunk off wine coolers. He can't dance for shit. He bowls for a team of accountants called The Debitz (I know), and he apparently has a thing for thick women of color.
I hope America Ferrera savored every single kiss and hug she shared with this man on set. You wanna talk white boys I dig? Shoot Henry Grubstick to the top of the list.
Neo-Prodigy...take it away.
