Maybe someday being a Jerk will be cool. Be careful about labeling people. :-)
I feel his pain.
You just can't win.
The only fake Nerds are those Gummi Nerds.Seriously, Wonka. You shit the bed on that one, and you owe all candy fans an apology.
I really do feel for this guy, but now I'm wondering which are the RIGHT comics? Is there a list somewhere?
No list. You just need a rage-o-meter when you're talking to a fan.
He might be a fake nerd if he's never had to defend his comic choices to other nerds before now.
Fake nerds are becoming the new cool thing. But true fake nerds never complained about being called so.
Fake nerd? What exactly are the wrong comics? Ones that aren't being made into movies?
I suspect it's ones that HAVE been made into movies. Now that everyone knows who, say, Rocket Raccoon is, he doesn't work as a touchstone for the sort of people who base their self-worth on the breadth and obscurity of their comics knowledge. So instead of saying, "Oh, you don't know who Rocket Raccoon is?" and making a smug face, they now say, "Of course you like Rocket Raccoon; he was in a movie. If you were a real comic fan, you'd be into Ch'p." And then they make the same smug face.
Hey, wait a minute! I know who Ch'p is. I even know who M'nn'e is! I must be cool now!
It's not just females getting called "fake nerd" anymore?
But... but I DO like Ch'p!
You don;t like Ch'p. No one likes Ch'p, not even Ch'p. Now is also probably a good time to mention that I don't know who or what Ch'p is.
Or how to use a semi-colon.
Ch'p was a Green Lantern from a planet of sentient raccoons. And I couldn't even type that with a straight face.
Ch'p was a squirrel, not a raccoon.
Ahh! You're right. Stupid failing memory! Seriously, though, thank you for pointing out my error.
