How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 139 (or dragon tattoo removal)


Determined to resist the literary fad of reading The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and its sequels, but tired of defending yourself to fans of the series (while remembering the horrors you suffered by reading the detritus that is the first book in the The Twilight Saga) you’ve decided to answer, “Have you read those books yet?” with the following response:

“I’m waiting for the posthumous spin-off series, The Girl with the Tattoo of Sean Connery Wielding a Flaming Sword While Riding a Crimson Pegasus Charging Toward Michael Caine Who is Carrying a Crossbow While Mounted on a Centaur that is Actually Weird Al Yankovic (Circa 1989) from the Waist Up.”

  1. I read them some years ago and they’re actually pretty good. Nowhere close to the literary goatse that is the Twilight series. They’re actually well written when you look past the fad.
    Amazing response though! I’ll be first in line when that one releases 😉

    • I’ll probably end up reading at least the first book in the series at some point. I learned long ago, that to make fun of something you have no first-hand knowledge of reduces one’s credibility on that issue. That is why I broke down and read TWILIGHT… thus I can make fun of that piece of @#&$ series 24/7.

      I just want to wait until it isn’t hip to read THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO series (unlike today) before I do so. What can I say? I’m a contrarian when it comes to hipster trends. LOL.

      Good to know that you liked them though. It gives me hope that I might as well (in the distant future).
