These are the new nerds. The old nerds have been usurped. The old nerds used to ask their girls around them if they could pronounce their name in Klingon. But these new nerds, they ask the poor long suffering females if they can pronounce their name in Elvish. I think it went something like this:
Nerd/1990s and before - "Hey, doll, wanna hear your name in Klingon?"
“Uh, actually I have this..thing that I -”
“Tavana Azetbur Aperokei. Gurr.”
"...I have to go now."
"..I'll be waiting."
Nerd-2000s – “Hey, doll, wanna hear your name in Elvish?”
“Gosh darn, y'know there's this thi - ”
“Idril Culnámo Elanessë.”
Neither attempt resulted in what the vast majority of the population like to call ‘pulling'. But this is not the point. This is the point. Gone! Are the pointy ears and angular blue suits. In! Are the broadswords and the chainmail. he question is, which nerd do you prefer? And which nerd shall come next?
