Interviewer Swaps Usual Convention Questions To Find The Real Fake Geeks [VIDEO]

Jennifer Landa decided to do some investigative journalism at San Diego Comic-Con to sort out this whole “fake geek” issue. And she enlisted help from our good friends Andre Meadows and Dr. Andrea Letamendi!

I never recommend reading the comments but I find it hilarious several folks on YouTube missed the satire part of this whole thing. For instance: “Yeah, I hate to break it to you, but most of the female cosplayers aren’t any nerdier or geekier than the males you accuse of fake nerdom. I find your video incredibly derisive and insulting.” Ah, life.

Wil Wheaton Sends A Message To Fan’s Newborn Daughter About Being A Nerd

Wil Wheaton had a panel at the Calgary Comic & Entertainment Expo over the weekend and something extra wonderful came out of it. A mother asked Wheaton to tell her newborn daughter (via video to be watched later in life) why being a nerd is awesome. He hits just about every point I try to hit when someone asks me what it means to be a nerd – it’s not what you love, it’s how you love it. We’ll allow Wheaton to explain further…

President Obama Confuses Star Trek & Star Wars, is a Fake Geek Girl

We’ve previously confirmed the United States has the geekiest administration in history but earlier today we found out we might have been duped! President Barack Obama is not a “real” geek as we assumed but a horrifying Fake Geek Girl!! While speaking on his sequester plan, the President was asked why he can’t force Republicans and Democrats to cooperate by locking them all in a room together. He replied, “The fact that they don’t take it means that I should somehow do a Jedi Mind Meld with these folks and convince them to do what’s right.” Big mistake, Mr. President. But the White House was quick to respond with the above image tweeted from their official Twitter account and www.WH.gov/JediMindMeld smartly redirects to “What You Need To Know About The Sequester.”
