I Feel I Failed To Impress You With My Esoteric Star Trek TNG Joke

"So, I said to him, 'Who do you think that I am, Q?' It was too funny. Maybe you had to be there. Wait, why are you looking at me like that? Q! You know, that wily trickster guy from Star Trek: The Next Generation. The one who's always pulling Picard's pigtails. He's an omnipotent being and always arguing about how lame humans are. He's homies with the Borg. No? Nothing? You have no idea who I'm talking about, do you?"

YOU SAID YOU LIKED NERDY GIRLS! What nerd is worth his nerd salt if he doesn't know who Q is? Sorry I didn't go for the obvious Geordi La Forge joke. That guy wears a banana clip for shades. Lame, right? *nervous laughter*

Honestly, I thought my esoteric Star Trek knowledge would impress you. I now see that I have failed to do that.

I am ALWAYS impressed by a good TNG joke.

Also excellent: Picard impressions.

I can understand if he is a die-hard Star Wars junkie and doesn't care for Trek, but if that's not the case I don't think he could call himself a nerd.

I think the problem lies in that it was a TNG reference! No nerd worth his salt is at home on Saturday night watching season 5 of the Next Generation on DVD. We need to hear jokes from the original series. Maybe a joke about Captain Pike's stupid wheelchair or Shatner's lazy space karate.

I love the fact that you coined the term "nerd salt". Anna, you rule <3

I miss the good old days when "nerd" meant someone that read books. Even occasionally books that weren't about vampires or space ships.

So women want nerdy guys who dig Star Trek jokes, memorize keyboard shortcuts, fix computers and win science fairs, but don't want to put up the introversion or awkwardness that so often accompanies such nerdiness.

Uh, I do/did all of those things and I'm fun as hell. I also went to space camp, was in the Latin club for four years, and was on the debate team for two. Am I dreaming the impossible dream to expect the same level of radness from my fellow nerds?

Good god, I wish I could meet women who make TNG jokes. That shit's straight out of my childhood.

My first ever sweep through Shmitten Kitten, today, has just been made completely worthwhile.

Because of your explanation of Q: that
"He's homies with the Borg".
