View Full Version : AW's Coolest Nerd...

Look, we're all writers, so we're all a little bit nerdy. Get over it. It's okay, though, because you can still be cool. Hell, nerd is the new cool. And I used to think I was the coolest nerd on AW. I even thought for a moment there that I had introduced the slang "Word" as meaning "I wholeheartedly agree" to the board, and watched proudly as its use started to slowly spread (amongst about two or three people).

And then I stumbled onto this (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showpost.php?p=1814859). III, I humbly bow to your awesome cool-nerdiness.

In one post we have the greatest avatar in history (complete with gleaming guitar that was certainly a viking battle-axe in its past life), a mention of the Wonder Twins (courtesy of Siddow), and then Jay gets started.

He opens his commentary with an enthusiastic "Word up!" (bringing "Word" back to its old school roots) followed by him one-upping Siddow by referring to each Wonder Twin by name, then capping it off with a name-drop of Snarf from Thundercats.

How many guitar-playing, slang-flipping, comic-book-and-cartoon-referencing rock stars do you know?


If you knew any more your mind would explode from trying to comprehend how so much cool could possibly be duplicated.

Jay, my man, I nominate you as the coolest nerd the site has ever seen.

Got my vote. I thought it was JComp, too.

I've got the nerd part down, but I can't even pull off cool if I'm outside in my Star Trek jammies.

See, told you I had the nerd part down.

btw, JComp? Mad props for the Animaniacs reference.

Since when DOESN'T "cool" go with "nerd"?!?

Jay=nerd, therefore Jay=cool.

hmmm..... " i i i Cool Jay. "

So close, and yet, so far!

You betcha, word up!

(I'm more of a dweeb than a nerd.)

But now that we're old, they're young again. It's the circle of cool...

The circle of life. I'm beginning to like the sound of that.
