If you really want your privacy invaded, don’t just sit there tweeting your address to university researchers, sign up for the hot new show on US cable channel TBS. Due to premier in 2103, King of the Nerds is a competition series, where the winner gets to be the nerd King.
We’re assuming there’s money in it too, because the monarch bit is probably “Nerd King” as in “Burger King” – as in, you can’t command anyone to chop someone’s head off or anything useful.
Still “this latest unscripted series will pit nerds against each other in a series of challenges that will test intellect, ingenuity and knowledge.”
We hope for two rounds of Klingon grammar followed by an hour of televised World of Warcraft.
