I'm white and nerdy...!
Apparently Wierd Al Yankovic has a new CD coming out, and lilithlotr had a link to a review, which included the lyrics to one of his new songs.

Just how many of these lines apply to YOU!?



They see me mowin’… my front lawn
I know they’re all thinkin’
I’m so white & nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
Can’t ya see I’m white & nerdy?
Look at me, I’m white & nerdy
I wanna roll with… the gangstas
But so far they all think I’m too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
I’m just too white & nerdy
Really, really white & nerdy

First in my class there at MIT
Got skills, I’m a champion at D&D
MC Escher, that’s my favorite MC
Keep your 40, I’ll just have an Earl Grey tea
My rims never spin - to the contrary
You’ll find that they’re quite stationary
All of my action figures are cherry
Stephen Hawking’s in my library
My MySpace page is all totally pimped out
Got people beggin’ for my Top 8 spaces
Yo, I know pi to a thousand places
Ain’t got no grills, but I still wear braces
I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise
I’m a whiz at Minesweeper, I could play for days
Once you see my sweet moves, you’re gonna stay amazed
My fingers movin’ so fast, I’ll set the place ablaze
There’s no killer app I haven’t run
At Pascal, well, I’m number one
Do vector calculus just for fun
I ain’t got a gat but I got a soldering gun
“Happy Days” is my favorite theme song
I could sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong
I’ll ace any trivia quiz you bring on
I’m fluent in JavaScript as well as Klingon
Here’s the part I sing on…

They see me roll on… my Segway
I know in my heart they think I’m white & nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
Can’t ya see I’m white & nerdy?
Look at me, I’m white & nerdy
I’d like to roll with… the gangstas
Although it’s apparent I’m too white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
I’m just too white & nerdy
How’d I get so white & nerdy?

I’ve been browsin’, inspectin’
X-Men comics, you know I collect ‘em
The pens in my pocket, I must protect ‘em
My ergonomic keyboard never leaves me bored
Shoppin’ online for deals on some writable media
I edit Wikipedia
I memorized “Holy Grail” really well
I can recite it right now and have you ROTFLOL
I got a business doin’ web sites
When my friends need some code, who do they call?
I do HTML for ‘em all
Even made a home page for my dog
Yo, I got myself a fanny pack
They were havin’ a sale down at The Gap
Spend my nights with a roll of bubble wrap
Pop pop, hope no one sees me… gettin’ freaky
I’m nerdy in the extreme and whiter than sour cream
I was in A/V Club and Glee Club and even the chess team
Only question I ever thought was hard
Was, do I like Kirk or do I like Picard?
Spend every weekend at the Renaissance Faire
Got my name on my underwear

They see me strollin’… they laughin’
And rollin’ their eyes ‘cause I’m so white & nerdy
Just because I’m white & nerdy
Just because I’m white & nerdy
All because I’m white & nerdy
Holy cow, I’m white & nerdy
I wanna bowl with… the gangstas
But oh well, it’s obvious I’m white and nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
Think I’m just too white & nerdy
I’m just too white & nerdy
Look at me, I’m white & nerdy

Something called "Ridin'" by Chamillionaire... never heard it.

Here's the link to the review that Lilith linked to: http://channels.lockergnome.com/windows/archives/20060913_im_white_and_nerdy.phtml

I've always proclaimed my non-geekness, so I'll work a bit harder at knowing nothing at all.^_^

Well, gosh, we'll see. I just don't think I have the endurance to be a good geek, you see. :D

Hehehe, I just like to drool sometimes, that's all. ^_^
I do have some endurance, but to do what tootsiemuppet does (live and breathe the whole fandomness), I tend to only do that with music. But then I'm sort of a music-geek. Does that count? lol!

Yep... that counts!

Are you into Therapy, Depeche Mode and Placebo, by any chance? One of our English friends is a big music fan.

I know bit of all of them, but I'm more of a metal-geek. Though I'm getting the knack of gothic-electro-dark wave things too. :D And I know a bit of every other genre, from classical to 80s to current.
