Vampire attractiveness chart

Count Duckula. Attractiveness: alluring [citation required]

26

  1. Link works fine for me

    Count Chocula: Comical/Delicious/Tasty snack

    At least everyone seemed to agree on that

  2. The citation for Count Chocula’s milk sogginess weakness is my favourite:

    D.M.R. Georget, R. Parker, and A.C. Smith, ‘A Study of the Effects of Water Content on the Compaction Behaviour of Breakfast Cereal Flakes.” “Powder Technology,” November, 1994, vol. 81, no. 2, pp. 189-96.

  3. Hilarious! I love the entry on the vampires in Underworld:
    Attractiveness: Kate Beckinsale.

    Very pleased to see Bunnicula there, too. I really enjoyed those books as a kid.

  4. My favorite was
    Attractiveness: Only to female rabbits

    These are some pretty fantastic tables. Someone put a lot of work and research into them. Now I only wish there was a similar set of Wikipedia tables on werewolf movies, which I find more entertaining that those d-mn bloodsuckers.

  5. This is why wikipedia is very stupid, in my opinion.

    In the grand scheme of things, do we really need data like this?

    An encyclopedia should be as much an archive as it is an active reference. If articles can’t remain relevant, they should not be there in the first place.

    The article in the OP reminds me of a similar Wikipedia aggravation i had before. Looking up “ROTC” would give a disambiguation list, one option being a single episode of Dr. Who named “Rise of the Cybermen”. Who, searching for “ROTC” would want that as a result?

    Thankfully it appears it has now changed, but when I made the initial edits changing the disambiguation page, I was met with the temper of several angry elitist nerds that seem to run Wikipedia.

    This is why Wikipedia won’t last (or why I don’t want it to.)

  6. Count Duckula’s been hanging out at the bottom of my Netflix queue for about a month and a half. someday . . .

  7. Count Von Count: Preternatural counting abilities.

    Excellent.

    An aside to Anon Party Pooper #12: Sorry that the information contained did neither inform or entertain. Here’s your refund. Obviously there’s an interest in this kind of information, your benediction of ‘stupid’ notwithstanding, otherwise no one would have taken the time to make the charts and annotate them so throughly.

  8. Count Chocula is the only non immortal vampire. How tragic: his expiration date is printed on his box!

    This is brilliant. How is this allowed to live within the dry humourless wasteland that is wikipedia? Quick, let’s take snapshots of it and never let them take it down.

  9. @ #10: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tables_of_werewolf_traits

    Get to work. Let us know how it’s going.

    @ #12: Wow. What a load of no-fun. You know the things about wikipedia? If you don’t like something, you can fix it; also, as it is (notionally) infinite, it is not necessary or useful to apply too strict an “important to everybody” filter.

    And, well, why should you give a crap? I hate to be cliched here, but “don’t like it? Don’t look.” It’s not taking anything away from you. There are plenty of other resources.

  10. My favorite bit, from the table “Similarities in plot settings”, where the first column compares each setting with whether or not Dracula exists in it:

    Bram Stoker: Title character
    Alucard: retcarahc eltiT

    1. How can anything on Wikipedia be a fail? It’s not complete, but I think there’s spare pixels around, just add it in. Especially Star – Attractiveness: Rowr
