I stumbled upon this today – retweeted by They Might Be Giants from Boing Boing’s twitter account. It’s quite the fantastic 19 second video clip that quickly states nerds are dangerous because we’re bitter that we weren’t jocks on high school. It’s amazing that he thinks that we’re all bitter because we were unpopular in high school – despite the fact that our culture is now so popular (although costuming for a midnight release still gets you the occasional strange look).
Also Chris Kluwe, kicker for the Minnesota Vikings, announced on twitter today that he’s writing a book, and it’s going to be titled Beautifully Unique Sparkleponies. For those who don’t know Chris Kluwe also owns a miniature gaming store and is quite vocal about his love for all things nerd, geek, and game related. Clearly no one told the man above about Chris Kluwe, or any of the other pop-culture icons that have been coming out of the wood work as huge nerds.
Here are the tweets about the book:
Anyone else find it hilarious, and kind of awesome, that Kluwe refers to most sports as sportsball?
I’m debating about pre-ordering Kluwe’s book. There’s a chance to get a signed copy of the book as well, but I’m not a big enough fan (YET) of Kluwe’s to pre-order a signed copy. You can pre-order Kluwe’s book here on Amazon.
EDIT: I properly embedded the tweets. (Apparently all you have to do is paste the URL… who knew?)
