This kind of thing is interesting to me. Itâ€™s one thing to say that their humor makes FOTC sexy but that canâ€™t be the only thing because, as an example, no matter how funny Todd Barry is he doesnâ€™t become sexy to me.

I guess I can understand it but that doesnâ€™t mean I support it. LOL. And whoâ€™s to say what was really intended? Jemaine admitted that they themselves put the idea of their own sexiness into our heads (he came up with the names Jemainiac and Breterosexuals as well) thereby creating the effect they now have on a significant portion of their female following. It may have been a surprise to them that it caught on but Jemaine has never seemed to show anything less than enthusiasm for it, even if it may freak him out a bit.
The more I see and know of FOTC the less I care about what they used to be. The fact that there seems to be essentially very little difference between what they were doing then and what they are doing now makes me nothing but proud of them at having garnered success on their own terms. I think their type of success story is a very rare and special one.
