Nerd Girls
Nothing personal, high schoolers.
Title text: Nothing personal, high schoolers.


The stereotypical nerd is socially inept and has an obsession with a non-mainstream hobby such as Dungeons and Dragons. Nerd males are also known to treat women with reverence and awkward fawning due to their supposed inexperience and lack of female company in comparison to other males. In the comic, the nerd girl uses this as an excuse for her social ineptitude.


[Girl with shoulder length brown hair and glasses, wearing a shirt which says "Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons"]
Girl: At least, thanks to your constant fawning, we have an *excuse* for our social ineptness. What's *yours*?

On the off chance that there is an XKCD reader that isn't already familiar with it, the full text of the shirt that is only partially visible in the comic is, "Do not meddle in the affairs of Dragons, for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup!"mwburden (talk) 19:20, 23 October 2014 (UTC)

Which is itself a parody of a quote "Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger." (from J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring) 00:59, 7 January 2016 (UTC)
