7 Reasons Benedict Cumberbatch Is The Ultimate Catch Of 2016

You don't have to be a Sherlock to figure it out. 

I’m not the only gal who would like to snatch me a little Cumberbatch. From his perfectly make fun-able last name to his undeniable good looks, and his sultry British accent to his undefinable je ne sais quois, British actor Benedict Cumberbatch has hearts around the world flitter-fluttering, and it’s easy to see why. A drama guy with a sense of humor, this guy is walking on debonair. Here are lucky 7 reasons why.

1. . Endless Wordplay Available With His Last Name

With a name like Benedict Cumberbatch, he’s the Engelbert Humperdink of our time! I’d let his Cumber-buns fertalize my Benedict Cumber-eggs, if you know what I mean. Want to play along at home? Check out the Benedict Cumberbatch name generator! You don’t have to be a Blubberbutt Cabbagepatch to know that saying silly words outloud is fun.

2. . He Identifies As A Feminist

When his swarms of female fans started calling themselves “Cumberbitches” the actor intervened saying, “I won't allow you to be my bitches. I think it sets feminism back so many notches. You are... Cumberpeople.”

3. . He’s Just Enough Of An Asshole

He cried on the red carpet premiere of Star Trek: Into Darkness because he was so overwhelmed by the reaction of his fans. He recently got married, and commonly references his belief that being a good father will be his greatest lifetime achievement.

5. . He’s Kind Of Weird Looking

I don’t know how this started, but I hope it never ends. At some point, the internet started mashing up photos of Cumberbatch side by side with lovable otters, then they did a bit about it on The Graham Norton Show. Now there’s a tumblr dedicated to Benedict vs. Otters. Amazing.

7. . No Seriously, He’s Down To Tell A Joke

In a world of cooler-than-thou celebrities, I think this last reason really takes the Cumber-cake, and that is whether he is an asshole in real life or not. He seems like a pretty cool dude in the press, in no small part, because he’s always down to Cumber-clown. From doing the dragon voice for a fan, to sassy comebacks (re: twitter), it’s f*cking hard not to like this dude. Though I’m sure plenty of folks out there on the internet are trying their hardest.
