THE MORE YOU KNERD: A PSA From The Portland Nerd Council On What Constitutes Being AN Actual Nerd

Nerd, Portlandia, Geek

I am constantly amazed by how many people in skinny jeans and Sally Jessy Raphael red faux glasses call themselves a nerd when really, they are just a bunch of attractive people who happened to find a few t-shirts of The Avengers at Hot Topic.

Maybe I’m bitter, after-all my Junior High and High School experiences revolved around mental abuse by the cool kids for wearing Dr. Martens and a She Hulk t-shirt during a pep rally, but the moniker of nerd/geek/dork should only be reserved for those that have felt the refreshing flush of a swirly given before 1st period.

So, for the love of all things Chewbacca, if you happen to be the kind of person who sports a few pre-distressed comic t-shirts or got into Red Dwarf only after you read about the reunion on the internet, listen to this PSA and understand the difference between you and the guys that got Atomic Wedgies for wearing glasses.

Thank you.
