When I was younger I was a GI Joe fanatic. Every time we played GI Joe on the playground I was Scarlett. My ‘fro turned to a sleek red mane. My tomboyish physique grew about 6 more inches and sported a body suit that made men drool…or at least Eugene Dudley, but that’s another story. The sling shot in my hand became a multi-faceted bow and arrow that could do everything from blow up a tank to roast marshmallows…

So imagine my excitement when the remake of GI Joe came out last summer. I was finally able to see it over Christmas and was blown away—by boredom. I’m sorry! It didn’t live up to the anime cartoons of my youth! But one man kept me sitting through the entire five hour—oh that’s right! It was only two, just felt like five hours—ordeal. Snake Eyes. Whew boy! Now as a young girl I fancied myself in love with Duke but now that I’m a grown woman who appreciates a slick bodysuit that accentuates every muscle on a man’s toned body, Snake Eyes just makes me want to don a turban, grab a flute and charm him right into my bed…err…basket. I meant basket.

He is the epitome of the strong, silent type. As a child, he took an oath of silence when his master was killed by his rival and arch enemy, Storm Shadow. He’s definitely not a commitment-phobe! The man knows how to keep a promise! So besides being a good listener and dependable what else does he have going for him? Let’s see. Phenomenal martial arts skills. I’ll be the first to admit seeing a man kick, punch and slice a sword through the air is an absolute turn on!

Whenever I’ve heard a woman say, “a man’s looks don’t matter”, I snickered. But now I’m a believer. Never—not in the cartoons or in the movie—have I glimpsed Snake Eyes’ face. But it doesn’t matter. Because it’s not just his strength and talent that makes him sexy. He fights for the side of good against the forces of evil. He’s a protector. He’s willing to sacrifice his own safety for that of others.

He’s a hero.

And the air of mystery on a man should never be underestimated.

Neither should a hot body.

While I was disappointed by the GI Joe movie—I guess I’ll have to wait until they remake ThunderCats—I found a new American Hero. Because of your dedication, integrity, strength and great musculature, Snake Eye, you are…Hawtie of the Month!


  1. I haven't seen it yet because my friends who did said I'd just be disappointed. They told me to stick with my Blade movies. LOL.

  2. Bwah! This may be your best hawtie yet.

  3. Hi, Laurann!
    Uh yeah...stick with Blade! My son loves the movie--I bought it for him for Christmas--but then again he's never seen the "real" GI Joe!! They didn't even say "Yo Joe"! *disgusted sigh* How can you not say "Yo Joe"?? But, Snake Eyes...yup. Just didn't show enough of him!!

  4. Hi, Debra!!
    Awww! You're making me blush! Glad I could make you laugh. This movie will make you cry for different reasons, though. Hee-hee-hee!!

  5. You think so, Paula?
    I felt I exhibited my deeper side with this one. I didn't pick him because of his appearance...just his de-lic-ious body!! LOL!! I am showing I'm not so shallow!!

  6. I hated GI Joe and almost fell asleep during. YIKES. Bad doesn't begin to cover it but damn, that Snake Eyes. Total eye candy.

  7. Wow, the ThunderCats. I haven't thought of them in years. I'd definitely see a movie based on that cartoon. I love your Hawtie and thankfully did not have to suffer through the movie to see a picture.Thank you!

  8. Hi, Regina!
    Yeah...that Snake Eyes!! Couldn't sum it up better myself! Hee-hee-hee! I think I pulled out a book and read when he wasn't on the screen! LOL!

  9. You are so welcome, Michelle!! Anytime you want to just stare at him without having to go into a coma by watching the movie feel free to drop by! LOL!

    Now if they make a ThunderCats movie and jack it up like they did GI Joe I'm giving up on the movie industry!!

  10. Way to start the year, Naima!

    Someone still complaining women are sooo superficial? The man is covered from head to toe, we have no idea what he looks like, but do we care? Nooo...

    Happy New Year from The Puddle of Mush formerly known as Dita

  11. Hi, Dita!
    That's what I'm saying, Dita! My sister didn't understand how I could choose him when I didn't know what he looked like, but I had to school her on his other attributes. I mean, the man is like Duncan McCloed and Bruce Lee in a wet suit! What's not to love?? LOL!

    Happy New Year, Dita!

  12. Hi, Christine!
    LOL! Yeah...yuuummmm.....

  13. Snake Eyes is the epitome of bad-assness! He gets the job done without a word! That's my kind of man ;)

  14. Oooh, now that's a line I should've had in the blog! "He gets the job done without a word!" Yeah, that's part of his sexiness!! You hit the nail on the head, Katie!!
