So I was perusing through the Tosh.0 Blog when I came upon that video.
I would just like to say that it isn’t very apt. Okay, sure, we all know that one day we’ll be working for those nerdy kids we picked on in high school (well, not me because I was one of those nerdy kids. Suck it graduating class of ‘07!). The thing is, nerds still aren’t very cool. It’s a highly stylized version of the nerd that’s cool.
The term is called “Geeked Up”. If you’re wearing skinny jeans, a shirt that says “I’d Rather Be Jerkin’”, colorful high top sneakers and some thick rimmed glasses…you’re probably pretty cool. But at the same time, you probably don’t know you’re ass from a hole in the ground.
True nerds will never be cool. I’m pretty sure it’s in the Ten Commandments.
You know the one, “Thou shalt be cruel to thy nerdy peers”. Even though computer savvy geek’s are ruling the world through blogs and social networking sites, they will forever be picked on by brain dead jocks who still live at home.
I guess it’s all good though. Seeing as how we’ll be getting the last laugh.
