For those who understand Spanish here is the actual video clip:



An english version of what happened is here.

I know I shouldnt use the word epic unless swords and knights are involved but in this case an exception is justified. In short this is what happens when someone pretends to be a geek, note the groovy beard and the Marvel comics T-shirt. However us real geeks actually wear such T-shirts because we are fans and know something about the cthulhu, Settlers of Catan or comics T-shirt. This so called Marvel fan got the question: 'What is Steve Rogers in the Avengers?' A correct answer would win the guy EURO 100,000 so more than a hundred thousand dollars...

Yup. But gentrification of geekdom obviously doesn't go down well in all quarters. So it goes.

He's a "señor" too, isn't he? Or do they take that "I'm not a mister I'm a doctor" thing more seriously in Spanish?

Reminds me of when I was a carpetbagger in Durham, NC. I'm originally from Iowa (yes, Iowa fought for the Union) but we moved south from New York City, yankee HQ.

My twins were small then. When I'd meet their little friends I was introduced to them by their parents as "Mister Justin".

Always eager to put my yankeehood on display, I took every opportunity to find a dig for any "charming" Southern custom* I could, so I would say (to some 6 year old), "Actually that's DOCTOR Justin" (I have a PhD). It never ever got a laugh from either kid or parent so I stopped doing it.

*This particular custom seems to have spread to Iowa now, which irritates me for no good reason.

I was a nerd when being a nerd was uncool. Now I'm a dad, so apparently, I get to miss every stage of being hip.

Typical.

All the guy had to do was to look down at his own shirt for the answer.

You missed it already - being a geek was cool like 10 years ago - now we are not cool again.
