11 Signs Your Presidential Candidate isn’t a Geek

The guys at BBSpot have released yet another one of their hilarious top 11 lists: Top 11 Signs Your Presidential Candidate Isn’t A Geek. These guys never cease to crack me up with their humor.

  1. Blames violence, prostitution, poverty, migraine headaches, rug burn, syphilis, and diaper rash on video games.
  2. Thinks Ubuntu is the new President of Nigeria.
  3. Prefaces web sites with the word “the,” like “the Google,” “the MySpace,” or “The YouTube.”
  4. The candidate’s web site makes copious use of the <blink> tag.
  5. Calls his or her National Security plan, “The Matrix.” 
  6. Uses an aol.com e-mail address.
  7. Thinks Firefox is one of those “pokey men my kids play with.”
  8. Thinks DRM is an old school rapper
  9. Praises Ted Stevens as a “guru of emerging technologies.”
  10. Still uses MSN as their home page.
  11. Thinks a Blackberry is a yummy flavor for a pie.

  1. ugh, '1' is really annoying. Everytime I hear about things being blamed on video games, it just makes me want to play them more!

    Btw, funny side note regarding '2'.. I heart Matt L. (Today Show – NBC) say "ubuntu" on the news this morning. Took me a few minutes to realize he meant the actual word* and not the OS.

    * He was doing a story from South Africa.

  3. Just saw the link here from another post, and it reminded me that when someone from Google did an interview with Obama, he was asked what he’d use to sort data. He replied, “well, not Bubble Sort.” He actually knows what Bubble Sort is?! Either he’s got a little bit of geek in him, or he at least knows how to do his research before opening up his mouth.
