Hmm.
Man, I really could have used a laugh....
That wasn't it though.

The Leonord Nimoy sings the Ballad of Bilbo Baggins on the same site is much much better.

hehe, he dances good. What a rude wedding party though, don't crash the LAN party across the hall if you don't want geeks dancing at yours.

Ah, but what if there were a wedding with a LAN party....

(actually, that's a possibility with some of my friends.)

good idea. don't forget the jolt-based cocktails.

Make those Red Bull-based cocktails if it's a European LAN Party / Wedding.

Look closely. Then ask yourself.... who is the bigger geek?

The dancin' guy in the Batman shirt?
Or the pseudo-DJ in the corner wearing a black fedora?

Or Jolt-and-Red Bull-based cocktails if it's an Australian LAN Party / Wedding.

Best of both worlds.

When it comes to caffeinated soft-drinks, at least.

That guy has nothing on this guy. I assume that this is an oldie but goodie, though I don't ever remember seeing it on the blue.

The "How to Impress a Date" piece is perhaps even better.

sigh, I read that as:

Damn geek genes.

Confession: I don't know what exactly a LAN party is. Also, I meant "geek" in the nicest possible way.

LAN party = Setup many computers in the same area on a Local Area Network (LAN). Often desirable by gamers as you are able to reduce the "lag" associated with playing games over the internet, as transmission times on a LAN are extremely low latency.

It is considered a bit of an "equalizer" in that all the players are playing under the same conditions on the same network. Also, it allows people to observe other players to insure there is no cheating.

Also, it serves as a major social function for those of the geek persuasion.

Sadly, that's how most of us geeks dance.
