Was “Weird” Al Yankovic thinking of me?

White and Nerdy

They see me mowin’
My front lawn
I know they’re all thinking
I’m so White N’ nerdy

Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Can’t you see I’m white n’ nerdy
Look at me I’m white n’ nerdy!
I wanna roll with-
The gangsters
But so far they all think
I’m too white n’ nerdy
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Really, really white n’ nerdy

First in my class here at M.I.T.   (Went to the U of MN – But I did apply…)
Got skills, I’m a Champion of D&D   (Well, not anymore)
MC Escher that’s my favorite MC   (I have several prints)
Keep your 40
I’ll just have an Earl Grey tea (I love Earl Grey, hot)
My rims never spin to the contrary (they don’t)
You’ll find they’re quite stationary
All of my action figures are cherry
Steven Hawking’s in my library (of course!)
My MySpace page is all totally pimped out
I got people begging for my top 8 spaces
Yo I know Pi to a thousand places (well, not that many…)
Ain’t got no grills but I still wear braces
I order all of my sandwiches with mayonnaise (not all, but many)
I’m a whiz at minesweeper I can 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 1 (The original Mac toolbox was designed for Pascal)
Do vector calculus just for fun
I ain’t got a gat but I got a soldering gun (I do)
“Happy Days” is my favourite theme song (Nope. Big Bang Theory)
I can sure kick your butt in a game of ping pong
I’ll ace any trivia quiz you bring on (Bring it on!!)
I’m fluent in JavaScript as well as Klingon (JavaScript: Yes, Klingon? Only a few words)
Here’s the part I sing on

They see me roll on, my Segway!
I know in my heart they think I’m
white n’ nerdy!
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Can’t you see I’m white n’ nerdy
Look at me I’m white n’ nerdy
I’d like to roll with-
The gangsters
Although it’s apparent I’m too
White n’ nerdy
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
I’m just too white n’ nerdy
How’d I get so white n’ nerdy?

I’ve been browsing, 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
Shopping online for deals on some writable media
I edit Wikipedia (I have…)
I memorized “Holy Grail” really well (Who hasn’t?)
I can recite it right now and have you ROTFLOL
I got a business doing web sites (not currently… )
When my friends need some code who do they call?
I do HTML for them all
Even made a homepage for my dog!
Yo! Got myself a fanny pack
they were having 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 (if you discount the freckles)
I was in AV 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? (Kirk. No! Picard. Dammit!)
I spend every weekend
at the renaissance fair
I got my name on my underwear!

They see me strollin’
They laughin’
And rollin’ their eyes ’cause
I’m so white n’ nerdy
Just because I’m white n’ nerdy
Just because I’m white n’ nerdy
All because I’m white n’ nerdy
Holy cow I’m white n’ nerdy
I wanna bowl with-
the gangsters
but oh well it’s obvious I’m
white n’ nerdy
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Think I’m just too white n’ nerdy
I’m just too white n’ nerdy
Look at me I’m white n’ nerdy!

Our choice of clothes can influence how people treat us. That’s a view that every living human agrees upon. Most of us act upon that belief once or twice a day. When I get dressed, the first two questions I ask myself are 1) “Who is going to see me?” and 2) “What do I want them to think of me?” You probably do the same thing. If not, there’s something deeply wrong with you, or possibly you’re an engineer.
