But in case someone comes up to you and says "Hey, you! Show me something nerdy!"
You can ask "Nerdy and awesome?"
If they say sure, ask "Nerdy and awesome with throwbacks to ZOOM and the painter dude from Sesame Street who used to paint letters and numbers everywhere?"
If they nod their head, ask "Nerdy and awesome not only with throwbacks to ZOOM and the painter dude from Sesame Street who used to paint letters and numbers everywhere, but also a palindromic mnemonic for pi involving group sex?"
Once they finally give in, show them this QuickTime video.
Then they'll say "Hey, you didn't mention the guys in wizard's robes who look like they escaped from Napoleon Dynamite."
Wow. I was just watching my old Noggin videocassettes (because I want to be Jennifer of the Jungle this Halloween) and I caught a bunch of the painter dude's bits. Love the piano music that goes with it, and also the fact that he seems to run into Stockard Channing everywhere.
That video is hypnotic.

It hypnotized my 8-month-old baby, I gotta say,
Woah. that is definitely the coolest thing i've seen in like forever. I can never seem to remember past 3.14159265358979462643383 ... i wonder if i listen to the song over and over if it would help... probably because the singing speeds up a bit just there. Wicked track, thanks.
Thanks, Spatch! Now I'm pissed off at Linux again!
Got it to play, eventually. Well, the video. Sound? Who wants sound in a primarily sound-based gag?
What the hell did I just watch?

Uhhh yeah. What in the holy fuck was that.

You know they ripped on Steve's childhood obesity in every clip.
He's even eating in his intro shot.

That's what clinched it for me. He wasn't just eating, he was scraping food into his mouth from his plate.
Dignity, that's all the fat kids of America ask! Dignity! That, and fewer swirlies, wedgies, and de-pantsing in front of girls. And please stop throwing our clarinet case on top of the school, it's really mean and the janitor keeps blaming us when we ask him to get it down. And stop stealing our lunch! We really want to be brave and not cry but it gets hard when everyone teases you and..
Uh, pretend I didn't slip into the first person plural there. I meant THEY. THEIR. Stuff like that.
And fewer zappings by mustachioed math wizards!

I'm confused, in a good way.
Magnus stopped watching Sesame Street to watch that video.
What precisely was Strong Bad doing in there?
I think he's just a common Masked Mexican wrestler.
The video on that site for Atom And His Package's "Undercover Funny" is pretty awesome too.
