This weeks Marry Boff Kill is perhaps the most contentious in recorded history. We will be deciding the fates of three of TV’s handsomest men: Ben Wyatt (Parks and Rec), Shawn Spencer (Psych), and Damon Salvatore (The Vampire Diaries).
Marry Shawn Spencer: Anyone who doesn’t think that Shawn is marriage material is an old sponge with hair hanging off of it. He’s funny, self-employed, and he kinda looks like a young Andrew Lincoln. Also, because Shawn and his BFF Gus are something of a package deal, I would be getting two smokin’ hot men for the price of one. To not take that deal, I would have to be just like Topher Grace walking on the beach at the end of In Good Company.
Boff Ben Wyatt: Is it ethical to boff someone out of curiosity? I mean, we know Damon can boff with the best of them, and Shawn has a long-standing reputation as a ladies man, but Ben Wyatt is something of a mystery. So I’d boff him, you know, just to see what the deal is. Does that sound slutty? I’m sure my mother will let me know.
Kill Damon Salvatore: I really have no problem killing Damon because he is a lead character on a show that is notorious for killing people and bringing them back to life. I’m pretty sure that the writers of VD will think of some supernatural plot device that will have him up and dancing on that banister again in no time.
Whitney, you ignorant slut. This is the only real course of action…
Marry Ben Wyatt: Ben Wyatt has all the qualities that this girl looks for in a mate. Namely, that he would be a most faithful, lifelong Comic Con companion. I would support him in his every endeavor, whether they be lackluster claymaish shorts or his Low Cal Calzone Zone. We would enjoy nights of Game of Thrones viewings and lively debates on the value of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. How can a real fangirl not marry this fellow nerd? Ben Wyatt, I like you and I love you.
Boff Damon Salvatore: Whitney, you shock and amaze me. How can you post your above picture of the infamous bannister dance and NOT boff Mr. Salvatore? And look at that cock of the eyebrow. I could never resist. I think I can safely say that if Damon Salvatore is ever in a round of Marry Boff Kill, he is always the ONLY option for boffing. I don’t want to marry into all that broody, self-loathing, immortality. But a night of passionate vampire boffing? Check, please.
Kill Shawn Spencer: As is the case with most killings in this game, this one grieves me. I love Shawn Spencer and a life with him would one full of laughter and adventure. But… he’s also a manchild and this girl likes men. While I take much joy from watching his childish antics every week (or when USA deigns to air this show every six months to a year), I don’t think I would want a lifetime of them.
Who got it right? What are your answers?
– Whitney and Ellen

Sorry Whitney, Ellen got it right!
You WOULD side with her.
First of all, Whitney I found a grammar error. Next, Marry Ben Wyatt for most of the same reasons that Ellen would, boff Shawn Spencer because a one night stand is about the length of his attention span, and kill Damon because I am no VD fan and pretty boys like him are really boring.
And…gross. Thanks so much for forcing me to imagine you having a one night stand. P.S, your idea of foreplay is explaining gerund phrases to him. Hot.
I agree with Ellen 100%. Whitney, who in their right mind would EVER kill Damon? And I think it’s pretty obvious that Ben Wyatt is the best choice for marriage. He’s adorable, sexy, hilarious, AND smart. Not to mention he can really rock a skinny tie.
Hey Hailey, how’ve you been? Everything good? Oh, and on a side note, FRIENDSHIP TERMINATED.
I don’t want to pull favorites here, but I’m gonna have to go with Whit on this one. I’ve been wanting to marry Shawn Spencer since the Pilot! And I would also boff Ben just for the heck of it….. Aaaand I could honestly care less if I killed the VD man, I, like Whit’s mom, am not a fan of the show. Besides, if you marry Shawn, you can boff him all you want…. Bonus.
Yikes. This is very hard. I can see validities to both arguments, but I’m gonna have to go with Ellen on this one. Ben’s the total package. And always reliable. Yet spontaneous enough to plan a wedding in one night. And if I’m gonna have a one night stand, I’m gonna do it right. And Damon Salvatore is as right as they come. Plus Shawn has gotten a little chubby over the years.
HOW DID I MISS ALL OF THESE COMMENTS? Love everyone’s arguments (especially all of you who are siding with me).
