Rufus From “Gossip Girl” Is A Paradox of Manliness (PHOTOS)

Spotted! Matthew Settle, better known to you and I as Rufus Humphrey on Gossip Girl, was recently seen walking down the street in New York City, caught in a moment that can only be described as a Paradox of Manliness.

You see, on one hand, he’s in the midst of launching a badass tough-guy snot-rocket that would make most construction workers blush (and with enough force to annihilate all of North Korea). On the other hand, he’s carrying around a little Pomeranean in a man purse, which is something girls do.

We’re not sure what kind of effects this paradox will have on the universe, but we like to imagine that every Maxim magazine in a two mile radius spontaneously combusted.
