This is not part of my Nerd’s Burden series (see part 1 from earlier this evening), but I thought this English class parody of Rudyard Kipling’s White Man’s Burden (which you can read here) by McClellen of Not So Realistic Fake Apple is pretty good. Read one of the verses:
Take up the Nerd’s burden.The savage wars of stars.Don’t let others be fooledThe original trilogy is best.When your goal is nearSomeone won’t have seen it.And punish heathen blasphemyAbout the special effects.
Now go and read the rest of the poem. While you are there, read McClellen’s self-introduction – I don’t know much about here, but her introduction paragraph is hilarious.
