I know this isn’t strictly movie related, but if you don’t want to hear about Red Shirt Guy aka King of All Nerds from the other day, you can get the hell off my blog. Red Shirt Guy, who over the weekend shockingly revealed that he has a mild case of Asperger’s Syndrome, is now himself a World of Warcaft character. As confirmed by lead designer Alex Afrasiabi on the WoW forums, “Wildhammer Fact Checker” is now a sidekick to the totally-not-dead Falstad Wildhammer, to accompany him through Aerie Peak in all of his duties as a member of the Council of Three Hammers (which I assume includes snortin’ cocaine and slaying vaginas by the dozen).
The announcement was made in pitch-perfect Warcraft fashion. And by that, I mean it showed up on the WoW forums, a bunch of people called it fake, and then the lead designer showed up to confirm that it was indeed real and made them all look like total n00bz. Who’s a fake now, F@gzors? PWNED.
I f*cking love Red Shirt Guy. This is my favorite story since Steven Seagal’s unique physiological reaction to arousal. Red Shirt Guy is my write-in for governor. Suck a wiener, Meg Whitman.
