Today I’d like you to meet Torso Guy.
“But, Chris,” you’re thinking, “couldn’t most of the guys in these stock photos be called Torso Guy?”
Why, yes, that’s very true. But usually they have something that stands out (not like that! sheesh), such as that candy cane in the very first picture I ever saw of Candy Cane Guy. With Torso Guy? His torso-osity is what stands out. Here’s one of the several very similar stock photos of him:
Torso Guy always had a

Very funny, Chris. That huge hunk of man-titty certainly puts himself about :).

I know Mayhem! You just know he’d spend way too much time at the gym than doing all that stuff he’s supposed to be doing.
You know, he’s a little too ripped for my liking.
.-= BrigitteÂ´s last blog ..A Crack in the Armour =-.
Russian River Rat? Seriously? That’s a title? Sigh.
His boobies are a bit big for my taste but nice abs.
.-= TamÂ´s last blog ..Back in the Saddle on Monday on Sunday =-.
The good boys don’t appear on romance paperback covers, Princess.
Tam, maybe he’s in the process of a little gender reassignment…?
.-= trekÂ´s last blog ..In which trek reviewsÂ Â Â Â Â Changes =-.
I have to agree with Tam – those titles are ridiculos..
Mayhem – Mommy is having fun looking at nekkid boys… your time will come hon…

Russian river rat? Oh my, Torso guy sure travels a lot 😉

Chris- I’m not into the man-boobs. That’s what they are, no matter how you look at it (them).
.-= LorraineÂ´s last blog ..Does That Come in Size "Huge"? =-.
He is a bit pec-ish for me. I noticed that the cover artists don’t seem to like his right nipple very much.
Torso-osity: I love it when you make up words!
.-= wrenÂ´s last blog ..Four And A Half Kisses =-.
’tis a bit nipply today on the blog
.-= furiousballÂ´s last blog ..a night of sweaty Scotsmen =-.
Oh my… lol!!! This one was very good Chris! **applauding**
Mayhem honey, yes, Mommy is having fun looking at those nekkied boys…
I think I did see a book of very black kitties for you… I think Mommy is trying to hide it from you…. go sneak off and find all those delicious kitties just for you!
Hope you had a wonderful weekend Chris!!! Hugs to you honey!
Gah! Now I want to call him Torso Boy and listen to Weird Al.
.-= Seanna LeaÂ´s last blog ..æœˆæ›œã°ã‹ =-.
I love misadventures in stock photography! Always makin’ me smile. 🙂
Lol, he is very well developed.
.-= LilyÂ´s last blog ..Mondays… Music and Man Candy =-.
Oh, I love that little torso handle…so chiseled and sculpted and….
Whoa! “A tit bit nipply” is right. What the heck happened to get him “In the Mood”? That is some serious fuzzing going on. Perhaps date rape drugs?
🙂 Happy Monday
.-= MirandaÂ´s last blog ..REVIEW: Sin on Skin =-.
You hit the nail on the head Mayhem.
Nice work. LOL. The only horrific improvement would have been if one of the cover artist added long platinum locks or like I dunno, money sticking out of his jeans.
.-= JessaLuÂ´s last blog ..One more timeâ€¦ =-.
I am a good boy. At least that is what my Momma says. I have 6 pack abs but you can’t see them and I don’t flaunt them.
.-= RufusÂ´s last blog ..Not much to do with fiber arts =-.
K- Torso guy scares me in Wandering Heart. That’s just freaky. Although if you look at it closely his abs kinda look like a mouth and the circle around his nip is his eye. No, I’m not stoned just creative! lol
I don’t mind this kind of repetition at all. That is a DAMNED fine torso!
.-= K. Z. SnowÂ´s last blog ..My Pix of the (Alternative) RT Convention =-.
Torso Guy needs a bra — or at least a camisole — for those man-boobs. Just sayin’…
.-= kmkatÂ´s last blog ..No-Hater Rolling Dance Super Bike Mega Party 2010.0 =-.
Lovely abs and biceps, but I have to agree with some of the others – Torso Guy has some serious moobage going on. Looks like a B cup, maybe even pushing a C.
And May…sorry, sweetie, there is no end to the naughty boys. 😉
.-= Ava MarchÂ´s last blog ..The Author Under the Cupboards =-.
May, Sweetie. Define good, please.
Torso Man looks gooooooooood. I shall never tire of seeing his man boobies.
.-= KC (Smokinhotbooks)Â´s last blog ..OMG May Book Releases & Giveaway Winners =-.
Whoa, Torso Guy gets around. And those pecs are too much!
.-= Val KovalinÂ´s last blog ..Jury Duty Day 1 =-.
Wow! I have to say that I don’t mind seeing that torso over and over again. I’d like to see it up close and personal. 😉
.-= EyreÂ´s last blog ..Hate =-.
May, boys with torsos like that are always trouble. Its just something we’ve had to come to accept. Now a torso like my husband’s (which is minus the 6-pack) never brings trouble, just lots and lots of pet treats. That’s what you need to have chris look for, Italian/German men who love pets. Of course they aren’t photogenic necessarily so thus finding stock pictures of them is probably impossible.
.-= RebekahÂ´s last blog ..Hello Dolly =-.
OMG you are hilarious Chris.. “was a drop dead gorgeous Russian river rat”. LOL
That “More Than Make Believe” cover is um… suggestive!
I love misadventures.
*waving at May* The good boys are few and far between sweetie…
.-= LeaÂ´s last blog ..In The Air Tonight =-.
May, they’re all naughty boys in the romance novels.
LOL at torso-osity! I agree that the man boobs are a little too much for my tastes but otherwise, it’s a fine torso.
.-= SydneyÂ´s last blog ..Cloudy With a Chance of Tornados =-.
I think you could’ve called him pec-boy because those are some serious man-boobs there. Wow.
Nice torso and tale! 🙂 Can’t wait for the sequel.
.-= ErotRomReader JannaÂ´s last blog ..Reading List – April 2010 & Mondayâ€™s Hot Couple =-.
LOL. He makes it with a river rat?? My kinda guy! Yee ha!
.-= Carolyn CraneÂ´s last blog ..My podcast is up, I’m off to RT, and other items! =-.
Huh. RRR can keep Torso Guy, as far as I’m concerned. Not to my tastes… though it does make for an amusing MiSP post! (Are we REALLY on #21? Oh. My. Goodness.)
.-= NicoleÂ´s last blog ..MayÂ Goalpost =-.
But usually they have something that stands out…
The indentations…I want to fill them up with putty!
.-= oranniaÂ´s last blog ..Books 2010: April Update =-.
His boobs are almost as big as mine, and that’s just not right! Hopefully he and RRR will be very happy together.
Could you pick that torso out from a line up?
.-= mrspaoÂ´s last blog ..Happy Days Part 1 â€“ Cardiff =-.
OMG. That’s great. I thought about doing something like this, but couldn’t pull it together.
I’m just going to stay in the bowed position.
