The Return of Pez

Superhero Pez

 

Here’s a fun game I call:

Are You an Über-Geek?

NB. You must OWN the following items featuring the above Marvel-ous Superheroes (and one DC dude) in order to add points to your score.

+10 points for every DVD you own.

+15 points for every DVD you purchased even though you disliked the movie, but bought it anyways, because you are such a huge nerd.

+5 points for every DVD you ripped.*

+1 point for every Marvel or DC-Movie CD Soundtrack you own. (That’s all I can give you. Frankly, I’m embarrassed for you).

+5 points for every mint-condition comic book you own. (Comic book must be in protective plastic sleeve to count.)

-5 points for every Marvel/DC comic book you have left unprotected against the elements, i.e., moisture, dust, cat fur, and wind/rain/snow. You should be ashamed of yourself.

Bonus Points: +2.5 points if you also own “The Best of He-Man and the Masters of the Universe” DVD box set.

 

*Pirating DVDs and CDs is wrong and bad and evil and lame. You’re lame. I know.

    I would lose WAY too many points for lack of protective bagging.

    I think, however, I would win only because I own the 1960’s “The Amazing Spider-Man #18”, and it’s in “good” condition and in a bag(with non-acidic cardboard backing).

    Take that, nerds.

    p.s. I preferred MAD magazine anyway…fa! fa! fa!

    I just want to point out that while points should be given for proper care of comic books, much more pointage should be deducted for improper attention paid to the insides of comic books, i.e. the crazies who don’t read their issues for fear of damage, i.e. fight to the death over Radioactive Man #1.

    Do we take it for granted that everyone wears their lint free white superhero gloves to read their nicely bagged issues?
