Vampire vs. Frankenstien

Melissa at Hope for the Hopeless asked in part, "If you could be a vampire or Frankenstein which would you chose?"

This one took like two milliseconds to figure out! Who would pick Frankenstein over Vampire?

I mean c'mon, Vampires can fly, they are practically immortal with eternal youth, get to sleep all day and get all the sex they want with anybody they want. (other than flying they are strangely like cats?) I mean the only drawback to being a vampire is trying to comb your hair or for some of you, do your make up, without a mirror. Pfffft. You are going to get sex with anyone you want anyway so seriously, who cares about your hair and make up?

Now, compare that to being a strong but realy ugly, slow, clumsy, freak with a speech impediment, fast temper, a squinty eyed hunchbacked best friend, total psycho dad and a wife who screams (and not the good way) at the very sight of you.

I mean then, just to top it off you have to cope with the whole issue of angry villagers chasing your clumsy ass around at all hours of the night. Shoot, and you thought the Homeowners Association was bad? And seriously, one little windmill fire and you are toast! No thanks man!

Vampire all the way.

Alright, so we know how you feel about that question, what about the rest?

Thanks for the giggle. I'm not sure I knew that vampires have that much sex, thanks for filling me in....

But Rob, we just discussed that your dressing gown sleeve has been dipped in garlic and you have recently purchased not one, but TWO modes for crushing up more!

HOT! you could score major points if you read it! by the way it is a YA novel but still . loved it! TRUST ME!

I'm with Melissa. I never knew vampires are out there being such sluts. In case I was ever in doubt, that fact alone makes it quite clear I'm not a vampire.

Manic Mom said...

Vampires are way cooler, plus, I bet they have more sex, not that I'm into sex or anything, cuz, well, I'm not.

But anyway, I am into blood these day!

And PS--I wrote my comment BEFORE I even read anything more than VAMPIRE OR FRANKENSTEIN! So I didn't even know about the sex part! Hahahah...

And thanks for the compliment over at Manic's about WW. I left you a comment regarding it.

Now, have you thought about giving blood lately? I don't want to have to come suck it outta ya! Bawhahahaha. I am sooo freaking funny, aren't I not???

Robin said...

The book "Vampires having sex" is by Laurell K. Hamilton. Read some of her series, Anita Blake, Vampire Executioner, you will thank me.

Jules said...

I agree, though I was stumped for a minute because I don't think that a Vampire can pull off a song like Puttin' on the Ritz quite like Frankenstein can.

Stephanie said...

ha ha! I thought the same thing. Who'd pick Frankenstein over Vampire?

Rob said...

Melissa and Sauntering- What? My goodness, that is how they get to bite people, they seduce them just by staring and the victim is powerless. The bite generally comes at climax. The sexuality of it all is a big reason for the genres initial and enduring popularity. When the original book came out during the sexually repressive Victorian era it was HUGE deal because of all the sex!

Erika- Yeah, I sure am working hard to make sure I don't get to become a vampire eh? :)

Kat- Yep, I can't argue with that! :)

CrazyMomma- Young Adult *and* hot? Wow, things have changed since my Boy Scout days! :)

Manic- Yep! You are funny all right! I am going to leave that right there! Not gonna touch it. Nope, just let that sit Rob. ;)

Robin- So I have two vampire reading posters here eh?

Jules- I dunno? Vampires are already in a Tux most of the time and if they just sing with a mouthful of blood the effect might be pretty close, "PUBBON ONA ‘ITS!!"

Stephanie- One of Melissa posters did. Only one. I was real curious why too. This is how we got this post! :)

Dizzy Ms. Lizzy said...

Frankenstein and the bolts on my neck isn't too appealing!

But - - Being of Sicilian descent, I don't think I would make a good vampire, with that whole "garlic" thing and all . . . unless maybe there is some sort of garlic 'allergy remedy' I could take . . . :-)

Tanya said...

Wow this is a question I have never considered. I guess a vampire would be better, than Frankenstein, but not being a vampire is better than being one. I can still have lots of sex.
:)

Melissa said...

You guys are going to die laughing when I tell you where that question came from....

Rob said...

Ms. Lizzy- Doh! I forgot all about the bolts thing!

Tanya- Sure! Just go ahead and rub it in then why don't ya! :)

Milissa- Uh oh!

Mags said...

Yeah, but...you could never eat garlic bread again. MmmmMMMMmMMMM

Rob said...

Mags! OMG, I had not thought of that! The HORROR!

OHmommy said...

Oh my. I had to cover my eyes. I read the word SEX eleven times in one post/comments.

You sure do deliver to your female readers.

SEX.

There you go. SEX read thirteen times. 13 is lucky.

Rob said...

I won't notice how you actually took the time to count them but thanks for chipping in and keeping the count up OhMommy!

Beth said...

vampires are soooo sexy. Frankenstein is just gross...all dead and stuff. You know he smells really bad too.

Susie said...

i voted vampires right away too, but because of the whole Brad Pitt thing--and wasn't George Clooney in a vampire movie? dusk from dawn or something?
I had forgotten about the sex--thanks for the reminder. Now I'm thinking about sex and brad pitt and george clooney. Wow. how fun is that?
