    Very funny! Not sure about Pierre & Marie Curie popularity among geeks. This will definitely raise my status at the next Christmas stand-up ;-)

    haha, clearly a stargate fan!
    good stuff, keep it up!

  • Andrew

    I knew all the people sending the gifts except the Goa’uld and the Vorlon. I bet a lot of people won’t know what an Ocampa is.

    Vorlon is from “Babylon 5”, awesome show, I had to work it in there :)

  • Andrew

    It’s supposed to repeat the previous gifts.

    Yep,
    I know that Ferengi, he promised me a lot of things, even a private moon. I hope Odo’s able to find him before next christmas !
    I think I’ll buy him a parachute and push him off the towers of commerce. For 3 strips of latinum I’ll buy any defective parachute.

    What is Goa’uld? Anything to do with beautiful Goa?

    Haha… very funny – you really made my day with this post. Great stuff :)

      I am glad you enjoyed it, I have to admit – it was a lot of fun to write as well :)

    What is it with everyone assuming geeks are addicted to bad sci-fi films? I’m a geek and I can’t stand them.

    • http://www.skorks.com Alan Skorkin

      You would have to admit that you’re probably in the minority then :).
      Then again what might seem bad to you is brilliant to someone else. And I think anyone would agree that Babylon 5 for example was brilliant, not the best production values but awesome story, characters etc.
