Yes I am a Nerd

Author: Bobby Valentine | Filed under: Bobby's World, Humor, Music

Yes! I am a Nerd!

I think this is hilarious. Yes, I like the Far Side too.

I had a conversation today with a elder. He confessed to me today that I am a nerd. That made me think of Weird Al’s great song.

    Amen! You’re a nerd. : )

    If you have time for another video I just uploaded embedded about 6 minutes of Bono’s speech (NAACP Awards) from this past Saturday. It’s powerful appeal for justice on the basis of what he calls the command, Love thy Neighbor. Check it out at http://benoverby.wordpress.com

    You’ll love it, Bobby.

    i am almost crying. I heard about the song but this is the first time I saw/heard it. I love brother wierd al.

    did you know there is also a new genre called “nerdcore” which is rap music by techno geeks, and these people are doing a parody like wierd al. I read about it in time or us news and world report

    I openly confess to being a big nerd too. It’s nothing to be ashamed of at all. šŸ™‚

  5. Greg Says:

    Very funny!

    Count me as a nerd too. Nerds have more fun. They love to explore things outside the box. Pat answers never truly satisfy. We truly desire to know and then share what we know. I think nerds have a greater passion for life. I LOVE BEING A NERD!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Lol… I think we all have some nerd in us. Some more than others.

    Bobby, Bobby, Bobby,…..You must realize that the only reason I recoginized you was I come from a family of nerds. My sister and my brother were both in the “Revenge of the Nerds” movie and my youngest brother played a nerd sooo nerdy even the nerds wouldn’t talk to him in the movie “Can’t Buy Me Love”. My question was rhetorical…I recognized greatness and I am in awe….much love my brother, Bob the Tomato

    Oh great… I find out I’m a blogaholic and a nerd all in the same day šŸ™‚

    Loved the video! Love Weird Al, too.

    So Bobby, it took this conversation with your elder to out you? I have always known you are a nerd!

    You know what they say, “it takes one to know one.” šŸ™‚

  12. Vonnie Says:

    Where did you find that video? You are supposed to be working on your book. Get back to work!

  13. MommyHAM Says:

    Ok – if you’re a nerd, then I am a NERD in capitals. Your nerdiness pertains to your faith, at least. Mine’s just random – such as, your elder couldn’t confess that you were a nerd, but he could confess that he thought [perhaps] you were a nerd. But is that nerd or merely me being a linguistic fascist?

    FWIW, my boss’ hubby is a comic, and he says only the truly nerdy can be funny, b/c it is the exceptionally smart who notice all the ironies that make things funny.

  14. Brian Nicklaus Says:

    mommyham speaks the truth

    some laugh at monty python because it is silly and outrageous but miss the subtle ironies that only the nerdy can appreciate…such as the communist peasant scene from Holy Grail

  15. Zack Says:

    Very funny! Love it! Weird Al is one of the funniest men alive.
    Don’t worry. I don’t think your a nerd. God bless!

  16. Neva Says:

    God loves nerds, too.


  17. Brian Nicklaus Says:

    i have watched it four times today, it hasn’t gotten old yet..

  18. d. chedwick bryant Says:

    I LOVE weird Al… watched white & nerdy ten times before recognizing Donny Osmond, watched it 90 more times, yes I am that nerdy.

    I hate to suggest that the corncob walk to the curb is true, but I can say from first hand experience that when this white boy walks up to gangsta thugs on the street to shake hands, they really do lock their doors and flee!

    Many blessings…
