|Mrs. Severus Snape in the house

Snarksexual, because sarcasm is hot.
I just bought the t-shirt ('Mrs. Severus Snape') and had to broadcast it. I can't wait to wear it to the next HP movie on opening night. Anyway, hi, I'm a new girl on the block, thirtiesgirl, live in Loss Angeles, and of course have a weakness for snarky men. I'd *definitely* agree on the snark appeal of Dr. Cox from Scrubs. That red headed crazy man gives me a boner every time. Dr. House, too, although less so visually than mentally. Spike from Buffy the Vamp Slayer is another one. Damn, that bleach-headed Billy Idol wannabe gets me every time. Hot, hot, HOT.
I'd add another name to the list, too: Sweeney Todd. Not Tim Burton's version, as played by Johnny Depp, an essentially humorless character with nothing but revenge in his heart. But the original Sweeney from the Broadway musical, as played by George Hearn. While Hearn's Sweeney was definitely a man with a deadened soul, motivated by revenge, his Sweeney still had an element of the snarkiest, blackest humor, in my estimation. When paired with Angela Lansbury as pie shop owner Mrs. Lovett, it was snarky magic. (Although one might not think of Lansbury as a prime purveyor of snark, her darker, more demented demeanor was on full display in Sweeney Todd.)
As evidenced by their infamous duet, "A Little Priest," in which Mrs. Lovett presents Sweeney with an untraceable disposal option for his victims... erm, excuse me, *clients*... it's a snarkfest to end all snarkfests.
Being the Broadway musical geek that I am, I have to post one more bit of Sweeney: the opening scene which sets the tone of the whole play. Get a load of Hearn's most snarky sneer as he delivers the last lines of the song. It sets my snarky little heart on fire.
