I’m still trying to recover from last weeks bomboshell that the Nerds in line at Graumans bought Arclight tickets but it seems this isn’t the least of their scams. It looks like they are telling people they want some pizza and that they need pizza and to bring them pizza but in fact, they already have pizza! Yes, it’s true, and Jessica Stover (who has joined our righteous quest to inform the world about the Nerds), who brought pizza to the line waiters last week is feeling quite taken advantage of. She says:
I was getting to know the Alpha Nerd by reading her blog to understand just how much she hates Wil Wheaton and loves the Bible when I came upon this:
Friday, April 08, 2005 — Courtesy of a TOTALLY AWESOME Detroit radio station we are getting PIZZA delivered to the line.
Oh what the fuck.
They already had pizza? Damn those nerds! I’ve been duped!
I also found out that The Empire Strikes Back played at the Egyptian this weekend. It wasn’t publicized, so of course I didn’t know about the screening. But guess who went? Yep, all of the nerds. And did they e-mail me, their new friend, to tell me about it? Hell no.
How you gonna play a ninja like that, nerds? I thought we were pals. I thought I was totally breeching your inner circle of nerdom. I was
hopingexpecting to be let into your Jedi rituals. I mean, you gave me the number to your secret phone line, for Yoda’s sake! Does that mean nothing to you? Nothing?! I guess all I am to you is a free pizza. I just need to know one thing: Did you… Sorry this is just really hard for me– Did you… let someone else answer your phone? No! Don’t tell me! I’m better off not knowing.
Apparently, the nerds want Star Wars all to themselves. I phoned my so-called new “friends” to confront them on the matter…
She’s got the transcript of the phone call on her site and it’s shocking to say the least. Unfortunately it seems that she didn’t read BoingBoing before making the call, otherwise she would have known about this awesome Darth Vader helmet and chestplate that changes your voice to sound just like Dart Vader’s which would have been endlessly useful for such a confrontational phone call.
