Chicks only love vampires when the bloodsuckers look like they jumped out of a Prada or Giorgio Armani ad. How many girls would swoon at the sight of an ugly vampire like Nosferatu?

Perhaps, but Nosferatu is the exception. Literary vampires have been portrayed as suave Byronic seducers since at least 1817 . . . .
I had no idea that the romantic vampire archetype was so powerful today. Then I attended Comic-Con's Twilight panel, where an audience full of teenage and twentysomething girls could not stop screaming. I managed to escape from Hall H before I went mad from the noise.
Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be debunked.
