Cupcake on the brain?

By Sam Nielson


Remember that Lando shirt I bought during the Star Wars Celebration? Well, John also got a shirt. This one:

Yes, it's a Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch shirt.

The instructions are on the back:

*giggle*

And speaking of which (only not the kind that weighs the same as a duck), Brandon Hardesty is currently re-enacting Monty Python and the Holy Grail - by himself - in short video snippets. And yes, it is positively brimming with geek glee:


Ah, that's good stuff.


So, have you guys seen anything especially geeky/gleeful this week? Share and link in the comments!

  2. My sister is getting me a pair of converse from solecreator but they were supposed to be for my birthday on the 15th but I am being so fickle with my designing it changes every day!! my current swaying is to make them look like tardises to hide my fairly-big-for-a-petite-girl feet.

  3. I'M GOING TO A MAKE YOUR OWN STEAMPUNK JEWLERY THING AT MY LIBRARY :D

  4. I went to the Lego store last week at Disney Westside (or whatever we're calling it now.)

    This was right after our annual trip to the T.Rex Cafe right next door for my son's birthday.

    And when I snuck off to buy b-day presents for my son, I also acquired a Chewbacca minifig keychain for myself!

    THAT'S geek glee.

  5. I couldn't help but show the Star Wars/Transformers image to my hubby. Of course, his first comment was "I don't know what's with the gray Optimus Prime, though." Any ideas?

  6. OMG... I love that the guy is wearing a Burger King crown and just crossed out "Burger."

    ReplyDelete
  7. I luuuurrrrvvveeee the first pic! I laughed and laughed. My 7yo DS loved it, too!

  8. This is so weird. I actually just stopped by to give you this link before I knew of this post.

    Wookie the Pooh

    Great fun for Star Wars and Disney geeks. My youngest loves Pooh bear so it is very close to my heart.

  9. What? Ridden on a horse? With a Burger King crown? That is pure genius!

    ReplyDelete
  10. I want that shirt so bad. One...two...five! Three, sir! Three!

    ReplyDelete
  11. *giggles insanely* Love it :) Esp the first pic, that was awesome.

    Hm....can't say that I've seen anything really geekly lately...

    Unless you count trying to make chibi-fied figurines of fave games/movies out of oven-bake clay and failing....

    ReplyDelete
  12. Where...do I get that shirt online? Oh my god, WANT!!

    ReplyDelete
  13. I must check out the Monty Python reenactment.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Not particularly geeky but hilarious no less: The The Impotence of Proofreading

    He-Man said Hey

    Dune re-dub (There's some mild language but nothing you don't really hear on TV already) They also redub The Thing and Predator which are also hilarious but have some language so I didn't feel comfortable linking them here. And I highly recommend anyone to check out their Episode III trailer. This was all my friend and I quoted at Celebrations at Indianapolis. The Sphere o' Fear!

    You've probably already seen this one: Star Wars as told by someone who has never seen it

    I'm so going to Kinkos for these because my printer is lame.

    The People's Mario Eh Comrade?

    Star Trek meets Monty Python.

    I have more but... yeah. I've already overexposed my geek. :P

    ReplyDelete
  15. Love love LOVE love love loooooove Python... kudos to Brandon for doing all the parts himself! Thanks for finding something to make me smile this evening! :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. im not sure how to get you the picture but my husband has 2 transformers at work on his desk one is optimus prime and one is starscream (i think) well he set them up so that optimus was standing arms over his head and sward in hand, and the other was kneeling in front of him with his head off laying to the side and the caption was "there can be only one". if you want the picture let me know!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Loving the Holy Grail re-enactment! It totally just made my day. Might have to go and watch the movie now...

    ReplyDelete
  18. Three geeky cheers for everything on this post! Double points because I just got this shirt from woot and wore it to work yesterday.

    ReplyDelete
  19. ~laugh~ I just saw this geekiness. My city is having a huge fan expo this weekend and as a publicity stunt this happened in a park down the street.

  20. That first image looks like the work of the photographer who goes by powerpig on Flickr--Chris McVeigh. Here's another gem of his:

    Also, I covet that T-shirt. Wherever did your husband find it?

    ReplyDelete
  21. Loved the Python re-enactment! Part 4 was EPIC!

    Also, I'm both embarassed and proud that I've seen every link everyone has posted so far (except for Jen's Holy Grail). I've watched the Star Trek/Python mashup at least 20 times.

    Here's one that's been in my head lately: Patrick Stewart's Alphabet

    Also: A Japanese Glee Commercial

    and there's a fantastic TV show on the BBC called "All the Small Things" about a rogue church choir. Check out the promo here: What's My Age Again? It's Glorious!

  22. I also was going to tell you about Wookie the Pooh series by James Hance. (His Wookie stuff is on his Facebook.) I love the other stuff he does. He's got Muppets, Star Wars and comic mash-ups. All together awesomeness.

    ReplyDelete
  23. WANT. THAT. T-SHIRT!!!!!

    Seriously, SO want that t-shirt. Where-oh-where can I get one?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Oh yes, star wars meets Monty Python-a-MAZ-ingly humorous--as is an evening with my family when we mute Holy Grail, turn on closed captions, and say all the lines ourselves (this is my adult family members, not kids). We may have also been caught doing this with Aladdin. And Beauty and the Beast. And the Sound of Music. But that's it! I swear! We can quit whenever we want to!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Oh wow, that first pic is awesome...but what's up with the grey Optimus Prime!!? Did they kill him again? XD

    ReplyDelete
  26. And Saint Attila raised the hand grenade up on
    high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy hand grenade that with it Thou
    mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the Lord did
    grin and the people did feast upon the lambs and sloths and carp and
    anchovies and orangutans and breakfast cereals, and fruit bats...

    Ahh, the silliness. SHRUBBERY!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Found these on a few sites... I would so collect these if they were real! Just the right amount of sweet, cute, girliness, and still really geeky... Hardest part would be choosing a few. It'd have to be all!
    Hello Kitty Mashups

    But I still love my StarWars M&Ms and all of the galactic heros type toys... :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Want! The shirt that is and the video was so funny!

    Don't watch this next one if you're not ok with strong language and overt sex talk. No, really. Don't. It's really, really funny, though. **** me, Ray Bradbury

    ReplyDelete
  30. GAH! Two of my worlds collide! Brandon Hardesty is my SIL's brother and to see him here on your website has prompted me to leap from a mere lurker to comment! Eeeeee!

    Love the shirt. :)

  32. Thanks for leaving me with a grin from ear to ear over the African Swallows!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I bought this shirt and I absolutely love it. The only thing I don't like about it is that nobody gets it! I saw it and before I read anything at all I knew just what it was. I was so happy I geeked my pants!
    However, I am left with the knowledge that none of my friends are as cool as me, which is sad.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Not particularly interesting to most, but I love the fact that my boss and I carry-on non-work-related conversations about all things geeky. Yesterday's conversation was about the music soundtracks for Firefly/Serenity and how just listening to the music we could instantly see the exact scene in our heads. Same thing with Dr Who music. Why must our day jobs get in the way of such important conversations??

    ReplyDelete
  35. I haven't found anything terribly geeky, but John's shirt reminds me of a computer game I used to play called Worms:Armageddon. Ever heard of it? In the game, you would control a team of worms with the objective of annihilating all other worms on the screen. My favorite weapon was the Holy Hand Grenade - it had a three second timer, then you could hear a chorus of "HALLELUJAH!" before it exploded and decimated half the screen.

    Good times...

    ReplyDelete
  36. I don't know if this qualifies, but this was definitely a geeky glee moment for this english lit geek...

    Shakespeare's Who's On First

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love this blog, and reading all the comments.

    Watching the Monty Python re-enactment cracked me up and totally reminded me of Weird Al's White & Nerdy.
    "I memorized Holy Grail really well. I can recite it right now and have you rotflol."

    As to other geeky stuff... Hmm, well if you love old school video games and great art there's always Glenn Brogan

    ReplyDelete
  38. Where most people would usually say, "If it looks like a duck...." My husband and I are always saying, "If it weighs the says as a duck....."

    ReplyDelete
  39. If that's the same guy I think it is, he did an amazing re-enactment of the dinner scene in Jurassic Park. Very talented.
    He also did a hilarious rendition of "What's this?" from Nightmare Before Christmas.

    P.S. Where did you find that shirt!? I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch! I love it! I was practically raised on Monty Python, so I MUST have that t-shirt! Thanks Jen!

    ReplyDelete
  41. I found this too. I'm really bummed that it's almost all sold out and the women sizes don't really fit most women.

    Ghostbusters shirt

    ReplyDelete
  42. I totally and completely need to either buy the Orlando shirt or this Holy Hand grenade shirt for my husband!!!! Please please please let me know if you ever see either for sale online!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. If you like geeky reenactments, then you need to see the scene from the Princess Bride that a guy redid with his cat. The bloopers at the end might be even funnier than the actual reenactment!

    ReplyDelete
  44. LOL. That first pic really did make me smile.
    I would have to recommend Shamus Young's 'Twenty-sided' blog for my geek glee. He posted this earlier this week.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eOjzLggAKis

    Silent Star Wars...ah the classics

    ReplyDelete
  45. Have you guys seen the newest episode of Phineas and Ferb? They go to a convention and there ends up being a war between the fans of Fantasy and the fans of SciFi. It is hilarious. I totally thought of you guys when I saw it.

    ReplyDelete
  46. did you see Nathan Fillion's tweet from earlier this week? You remember Nathan Fillion, right? Mal from Fire Fly? well, look at this photo he posted...Steam Punk Lightsaber

    ReplyDelete
  47. Also there is this strange and wonderful news,

    How the Washington Shakespeare Company came to offer Shakespeare in Klingon


    Don't you love that remarkable moment when roSenQatlh and ghIlDenSten exit the stage and Khamlet is left alone to deliver the immortal words: "baQa',Qovpatlh,toy'wl"a' qal je jIH"?

    ReplyDelete
  48. Have you ever had the pleasure of seeing MacHomer? It's MacBeth... as in Shakespeare... in a one-man show with a cast of all the Simpsons characters. Confused yet?

    I'll be honest--I'm not a big Simpsons fan, and while I like ol' William, he can be a little trying at times. This show, however, is one you should NOT miss. Check it out if he's ever near you.

  49. <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xg2kDtJZos8&feature=player_embedded>Best geeky love song ever.>

    Complete with twist ending.

    The band, Kirby Krackle, hails from Seattle, so my state has something kinda cool.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Star Wars Uncut. It won an Emmy. And seriously, the fact that something like this exists just makes my day.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh my gosh I went to high school with Brandon Hardesty. Good to see he's still being all creative and such.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Check this out...

    I want one! :3

    ReplyDelete
  53. Want. That. SHIRT. That's my e-mail signature. The whole thing. I keep getting replies from one-time e-mails cackling at me. It's a great way to break the ice, I guess. :P

    ReplyDelete
  54. Oh gods where did you get the Hand Grenade tshirt? I must have it in my life!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I just ordered this shirt from Etsy for a friend because we are both Harry Potter geeks to the extreme! http://www.etsy.com/listing/42628557/expecto-patronum-tshirt

  56. Have you seen this? He has a few others posted, but Vader looks like he's right up your alley.
