Nerd Lunch Episode 13: Cartoon Crushes
Unlucky episode 13. This will probably end up being “creepy” episode 13. Our topic this week is to discuss our cartoon crushes. Yes we talk about cartoon people that we find attractive. And to up the creepiness factor, we categorize them into categories like “Dream Date”, “The One That Got Away”, “Bad Girl”, etc etc. So not only do we actually have to think about our crushes and put a label on them, most of the cartoon crushes we talk about are supposed to be, well, a little younger than us. So yeah, we toe the line of being awesome and getting a visit from Chris Hansen.
In a move designed to make this episode seem less creepy and lecherous, we are joined by Kristin from the Geek Girls Network. You are going to love her, she’s hilarious. And yes, we actually talk about half human half turtle babies. We go there. And Kristin is the one to bring it up. I am so in love with this episode.
Again, this is a very visual topic (like the Nerd Decor episode) so I thought I’d give you guys a visual reference to some of my cartoon crushes. These are in no particular order, listen to the podcast to see what category in which I put these lovely ladies.

Elise – From the SSX snowboard video game franchise.
