Get Your Sparks Plugged: Electricians Are The New Dude Of Choice

Turns out Pamela Anderson isn’t the only star dating an electrician. British pop singer Leona Lewis has been getting loads of flack for staying with her boyfriend of seven years, Lou Al-Chamaa, also a master of all things electric. She’s pissed that everyone’s heckling her. “It does make me angry,” she said. “Because he’s a great person. And it doesn’t matter what you do in life, what your job is, where you come from. For people to think that you should leave someone because, all of a sudden, you’re a singer and you have opportunities. I feel very sorry for them.” Leona’s sparky (which is apparently slang for electrician) also happens to be hawt, which sweetens the deal. [People] I suppose if you’re going to date a normal dude, electricians are the way to go since they’re often good-looking, they wear sexy hardhats and tool belts, and they can rewire your pad. Plus, they’re probably pretty smart and mechanically minded, and—unlike every guy I’ve met this year—they’re probably still employed! As a bonus, you can also make all sorts of sexual innuendos about how they “turn you on” when they’re “roto-splitting your cables” and “fishing their wires” into your “closed cavities.” I tend to have fantasies about the gas guy as well, for some reason. Which fix-it guy do you fantasize about?
