There is no celebrity with Internet fandom quite like the one and only Benedict Cumberbatch. He’s a living, breathing meme (mem? meh!) — thankfully he’s embraced his Tumblr fame and has good fun prodding us all along to see what sort of gif or meme we’ll come up with next. Remember that time he did a Reddit AMA and when asked about Matt Smith and Tom Hiddleston and responded with this?
We like nothing better than buffing our Zygoma. And imagining a horny time traveling long overcoat purple scarf wearing super sleuth nordic legend fuck fantasy. Get to work on that, internet.
Yeah, Cumberbatch gets it, he’s the aribiter of Cumbersass after all. So when he’s not crying about Lupita Nyong’o or photobombing the Oscars red carpet like a BAWSE, he’s just sitting on a heaping pile of soon-to-be-Internet gems.
In the latest of Cumber-news, the A-lister said in an interview with T Magazine, “I am so ready to play a really dumb character…I always seem to be cast as slightly wan, ethereal, troubled intellectuals or physically ambivalent bad lovers.” That he does, and none of us are complaining.
But you know, now that we have that little nugget, we couldn’t just let it sit there. We had to put our favorite smartypants up against some famously dumb lines from TV, film, celebs, and even a few silly Sherlocks.
Ladies and germs, Bustle is proud to present the latest Cumbermeme…Benedict Dumberbatch.
