just a minute ago i saw a local political campaign ad where the guy is touting himself as a nerd, and referencing successful nerds we're supposed to identify him with, and the narrator has zero acting ability and is reading straight off a script, and so his flat monotone delivery turns "shoot, clark kent saved thousands of lives." into "shoot clark kent, save thousands of lives." neither of which makes sense since kent is fictional and saved all of his lives in non-geek guise, but the latter of which makes me think i'd be voting for a puppet of lex luthor. whereas i'm supporting turd sandwich.
