U Has Sheep for Wheat?

The following image is one of the best products of internet geekdom so far, distilling three disparate geekinesses into one single hilarious image. Of the people that I know who read this blog, I can only think of three who might see all the connections: Will, Nikchick, and Michael Rawdon. Maybe more of you will — I don’t know. (Many of you will get two of three.)

Regardless, it’s hilarious.

Here are the three geek things taking place here, in order from most obvious to least obvious:

This image is actually just one from a larger LOLTrek series that retells the entire “The Trouble with Tribbles” episode in lolcat dialect. It’s funny stuff.

I get the Cataan reference now that you point it out. When I first read this loltrek it only puzzled me.

Oh man! I’ve read this several times, but never caught the “Settlers of Cataan” reference. Which I’ve only started playing in the last few months (great game!) Lately the whole “lol cats” meme has been my guilty pleasure. The whole thing is just hilariously goofy! I recommend going to ytmnd.com and searching for “cats” or “harbl”. There is a pretty funny little slideshow w/music somebody made that strings a whole bunch of the “lol cats” stuff. together.

Oops. I accidentally posted another entry for a few minutes. Sorry about that. I wrote this one a week ago and scheduled it for today and forgot about it. Then I just wrote a jumbo story entry that posted. You’ll have to come back tomorrow for that.

I dont get any of it. Every single movie and person mentioned is as if you’re speaking Greek! What planet do you inhabit?

They aren’t speaking Greek, they are speaking Klingon.

9 Dave from Bend May 10, 2007 at 17:01

Its not Greek, we’re speaking geek!

Hilarious!

I love stuff like this. I often refer to play money as “Quatloos” and wait to see if anyone gets the reference.
