Nerd Tatts Of the Week
by Chris Hardwick on May 17, 2010
So I’m buying jeans at the Beverly Center Mega-Mall complex and Shopatorium today and a dude comes up to me and says, “I love your blog!” which is exciting to me because I enjoy being acknowledged. I reply with the clever, “Thanks!” (as you should do in a situation such as this) and go to shake his hand. When I look down, I see some decorative flesh art that is so epic that I start taking pictures of it almost before I ask if it’s okay.
The best part is, THEY’RE NOT DONE. Soon lightsabers will adorn each finger. He said he felt weird because, “If I were Caucasian, Obi Wan would look right, but because I’m Mexican, he just looks kinda tan,” to which I reply drolly, “Well, Tatooine IS in a binary star system.” *snort laugh*
So to this fine young gentleman with exquisite taste in online periodical literature (whose tweetstream is @matthewebone) I say, “NICE TATOOINE TATTS!”
Btw, don’t bother cutting off his right hand. It would only become more powerful than you could possibly imagine.
