Excerpts from the most recent Nerd of the Week Nominations
Marcia W's teacher from OK " is a computer teacher nerd, and she likes the purple nerds." I sure hope she is referring to the candies!
Andrew H from CA "is constantly working on homework for his classes in Physics, English, Programming, etc. He is always working and he rarely ever does something 'normal,' going to parties for example. He recently wrote a 20 minute speech on the history of SPAM." Where can I get a copy of that speech?
Jimmy the Tee from NJ claims he has been a "Total nerd for more than 50 years. But as in "Revenge of the Nerds"--- the women love me! High IQ and low dough. I go back to the days of the pocket protector and the slide rule. Love to read and outwit the system anyway I can. Long live NERDISM!" I wonder if he is related to Eddie the Hammer
Liz Ts Lover claims that she "teaches herself dead languages when she's not reading magazines about the new paradigm of modern life. she's got a website devoted to nerdy girls" I'm ready to tell you my secret now...I see dead people
