2. Alive and Dead

9. I don't know, but I know what a Wookie is, and have since it came out in '77. Do I get partial credit?

10. "It." Because of this, there's no need to bring them a shrubbery, big and expensive, or otherwise.

No, I'm not the ultimate geek. But there's a trace of it in me nonetheless. *G*

Tony believes in, "Don't live to geek; geek to live" :)

I'm not giving answers yet, but md, the title is from the song "Pencil Neck Geek" by Freddie Blassie. It's a classic. The line preceding the one I used in the title is "Mom said, "Sell it to the circus, what the heck?/ Dad said, "Nope! This one's a pencil neck!"

Nancy Bea Miller said...

Hah! I was just waiting to see if someone would attempt to illustrate the original meaning of geek (person who bites the heads off live chickens at circus sideshows)! You are the winner!

100% flunked your geek test. But there are other ways of being geeky, methinks. (Like being a person who loves to use the word 'methinks'!)

Funny illo, Tony! I failed the test.

DaisyB said...

Aw Tony! Those are some hard questions! I'm no geek....

But you wanted to know how to make a digital clock by hand? I answered you on my blog. Funny illo :)

HARDWAX said...

I think your brain contains too many facts already, so I'm not gonna tell you the answers.
Great depiction of a traditional geek, makes me wanna swallow.

Jennifer Blake said...
