Hello Friday: Fiercest Nerds on the Block June 5-11

Warren Beatty, Clive Cussler, Darth Vader, and OKKKKKKKKKK-lahoma all showed up in this week’s comments. Check it out:


Bonnie & Clydere: Fierce OR Nerdy: Bank Error in Your Favor, in which slpc presents us with the ethical dilemma of whether we would run off with millions of dollars that were accidentally deposited into our bank accounts or return it. Of course she used a picture of Bonnie and Clyde to illustrate all of this.

(Thought) Chuck: You have to admit that, scruples aside, given the opportunity to escape with a young, totally gorgeous Warren Beatty at the wheel of a hot 1930’s vintage car to the tune of “Foggy Mountain Breakdown,” who WOULDN’T run?!?!?!?!


re: Single White Nerd: The Break-Up Bookshelf, in which Michael Kass puts forth the theory that putting a lot of bad books on display might be a great, no-conflict way to get a girl to break up with you.

SeaKat: I really think you should throw in a series of Clive Cussler novels. Nothing says “RUN from this man” like a little Dirk Pitt. One or two could be passed off as a gift, though, so you’ll need to invest in at least a dozen. Don’t worry, I’m sure you can get them for pennies at the local used book store.


re: NewlyNested: Looking for a Father’s Day Gift? in which Debra Goykhman gives a bunch of suggestions for fun F-Day gifts. Sadly, one of our commenters had already been burned by one of her picks: the Carnivorous Bug-Eating Garden.

Josh Grelle: I got that bug eating garden for my brother, but it didn’t work…. : (


re: Buy Me This: Death Star BBQ Grill, in which CH geeked out over a BBQ grill designed to look like the Death Star.

Justin_Time: Vader: “Don’t be too proud of this technological terror you’ve constructed; the ability to flame-broil a burger is insignificant next to the power of the Force. “


re: Thought Chuck for June 11, in which Charles Cron informs us that there is a law banning whale-hunting on the books in Oklahoma. Oh, Oklahoma…

DebraB: And all the whales in the Red River are grateful for that.
