You are a stroke of brilliance in the world. I know you get this all the time, but it's for a very, very good reason. I can't believe I almost went through life without realising how amazing it can be when Benedict's body is in the world, being in the vicinity of various things. It's beautiful.
Oh wow thank you! The sheer brilliance of his touching techniques is something that dawns on everybody at one point in their lives. It’s a joy and an honour to share it!
Yeah, that was me. I made it yesterday because I got impatient. But even if you don't technically "own" the idea, I made sure to credit/link to you cause my new tumblr wouldn't exist without inspiration from yours!
I see. Well, Thank you for the credit! Good luck with the blog.
I just couldn't stop laughing about 'Pope Benedict' and the fact that the... (I don't want to say real), erm, german Pope Benedict turned 85 today. I like our Pope Benedict more. The other one looks like Darth Sidious :/
All hail Pope Benedict XVI Cumberbatch. Our Pope Benedict is less Nazi Youth and more TV sleuth…
I really need a life if I come up with rhymes like that.
It may not live up to it’s hype, but by God, we’ll try. 2000 followers is a special milestone (as is every 1000. I just want a good excuse to party).
I’ll be doing a little Q&A and be posting random little pictures during the day, including a few guest spots. So get you’re questions in! I’ll be as honest as I can with the answers!
I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you guys who follow, submit, send in asks and questions etc. Let us love life. Many thanks also for Benedict for being totally unaware of this creepzone and for his roaming hands. Long may they roam.
Here’s to many more still images of Benedict touching paraphernalia.
I actually think that is Benedict. I tried to lighten the picture up some to see his face better, and I think it is him flying up there! Benedict's nose really is huge... and look at the chins! Also, his fingers are the right lengths.
I believe in Benedict Cumberbatch! Get it trending.
I'm afraid that's not Benedict touching high altitudes ... I've read about him doing that stunt himself, too, but it's not him in that particular photo. Look at that nose! that's a long-ish nose, not Benedict's!
BUT WHY WOULD HE LIE?! Benedict never lies!
Never mention the fact he said he doesn’t smoke yet he clearly does.
OMG I just found this blog and now I'm far too turned on (especially by Benedict touching a car door, WTF is wrong with me??). Thank you for this awesomeness <3
There’s no such thing as ‘too turned on’. Benedict touching a car door is one of those pictures…you’re not the first to say they like it. Something about motor vehicles and men. You’re very welcome. Thank you for the lovely message!
I will now start carrying around a printout of this blog so that in the very unlikely event that the Great Cumberbatch and I ever meet, I will be able to whip this blog out and ask him to touch it. I will have this photographed. And then I will enshrine it.
This is the best idea I’ve heard yet. However, may I suggest one small change? Before the proposed enshrining, you should send me a multitude of photo’s of him coming into contact with the blog from a plethora of angles.
Then I shall post them on here and weep with joy.
Then you can enshrine away.
Best plan yet. Yes. I love it. And so does Benedict.
I came on your Tumblr because... Well just because. And then, it made more sense than I thought it would. And I planned on saying something about it, but everytime I decided I'd ask/tell you something, I saw another picture of Ben. And so I scrolled all the way through your Tumblr, and then I didn't have any distraction. And then I came here, to tell you that this is amazing. And I am so overwhelmed by the beauty of this all, that my grammar doesn't make any sense anymore. But I love it :D
Anything concerning Benedict makes more sense than it should This blog makes all the sense and none of the sense all at the same time; the contradiction makes my head hurt.
I’m so glad this vicious cycle of Benedict appreciation is not something of a burden to you, but the very opposite. I’m very happy you like the blog.
Thank you for the lovely message. May Benedict keep touching many a’thing.
Oh hai new favourite thing ever! What is the one thing you would kill to have a picture of Benedict touching on this blog? ^_^
Hmm one thing, you say? Well aside from the obvious ‘Benedict touching a blog of Benedict touching things’ (which is a life ambition), I’d really want a picture of Benedict touching Tumblr just for the banter.
Or maybe Benedict touching something with sass (I love it when he touches things with sass!)
We are fast approaching the godly 2000 followers mark and I want to do something special to celebrate it when the time comes. It’s a way off but I wanted some idea’s on how to celebrate such a momentous occasion now so I’m mentally and physically prepared.
Please note I will never be mentally or physically prepared for 2000 followers. I will probably be sitting here crying tears of joy while unceremoniously melting into a gibbering puddle from the sheer gratitude.
I’ve had a few messages requesting a Q&A but:
I’m a rather dull person and answers may leave a lot to be desired. I literally sit here googling photo’s of him touching things. My life is just a hoot.
There are only so many questions one can ask about touching things.
Although I would love to do a Q&A day, I wanted to ask you all what you would like to do? Seeing as it’s the followers who make the blog, it’s only right.
Leave me a message and we’ll see what happens when the time comes. :)
Here’s a gif of Benedict touching a sparkly rainbow to entice you.
