Don't Call Yourself A Nerd Unless You're A Nerd PSA

This is a public service announcement from that show Portlandia about not calling yourself a nerd unless you actually play D&D every Thursday and buy comics on eBay and dream of having sex with anime characters or whatever. Brian here is an "actual nerd" and doesn't like it when people call themselves nerds who aren't. Here's my problem with it: who cares? I don't understand why there's this thing right now about trying to call out fake nerds and geeks. Almost everyone is trying to pretend they're something they're not, why are we calling them out specifically? Don't you have something better to do? Arguing about somebody's nerd credentials doesn't make you more of a nerd, it makes you a dork. And nobody likes a dork.

Hit the jump for the video.

Thanks to WonderBagel, who sounds like a GREAT IDEA. I was actually going to make a bagel with lox this morning but opted for a drinkable yogurt smoothie instead.
