Unlike what the innernets might try to tell you, a Nice Guy isn’t all that uncommon, nor are they passsive-aggressive jerks who want to be patted on the back.  The worlds of pop culture are filled with ’em, from Jimmy Olsen, the Daily Planet’s ace photog, to Police Chief Marge Gunderson of Brainerd, MN to Launchpad McQuack, sidekick to two different adventurous lunatics in two different cities.  Those examples even prove that you don’t have to be a “guy” or even a human to be the proverbial sweeheart, leading to today’s affable query…

About Author

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.
