    Someone I met at my current job was an extra in this movie, as a generic Nerd in the Nerd Clique. He says they shot a scene that wasn’t used, in which the nerds ogle a comically oversized human anatomy book. I guess there were just too many plot threads to justify keeping such an extraneous moment!

    Also, thanks for the link

    You guys sound like the biggest nerds ever. I mean, D&D nerdy. Jeeze. Oh, and, I’m going to create the Greatest Logo Ever ™ for you, so that dad’s logo doesn’t ruin your site. *ooooohhhhhh… hi dad….* bye!

  5. K says:

    But, I still luvs your podcast, it’s funny… Dan, go to http://www.braingle.com, create an account, and play Werewolf. NOW. Or I’ll hit you. I mean…. heh… heh…

    “Title card: two years later”. Why wouldn’t it be, I don’t know, two -weeks- later? The people who made this movie obviously -hated- it. I mean, -really- hated it.

    My niece is apparently listening to me swear and drink via the magic of podcasting. Great. I mean, it’s my avuncular duty to lead my young charges astray, but still…

  8. K says:

    Talking bear that’s the talk of the town? Psh, you’re the biggest nerd -ever-. But we still luv you back here in MA.

  9. K says:

    And, what do you want your non-sucky logo to look like?

  10. K says:

    What does avuncular mean?

    And, -Dad- introduced me to this. It’s nice to hear you care, though.

  13. Dan McCoy says:

    My niece, ladies and gentlemen! GOODNIGHT!

    P.S. – Kate:

    Latin avunculus maternal uncle — more at uncle

    1 : of or relating to an uncle
    2 : suggestive of an uncle especially in kindliness or geniality (avuncular indulgence)

    Eight years later, and these comments still pack a punch.

  21. Tony Macaroni says:

    It sounds as if Eliott was describing The Smurfs movie when he was pitching his script, but this was recorded before the smurfs right? I’m confused.

    The Principal’s daughter who wants that oddly-designed clique taxonomy would grow up to create the gangs in “The Warriors”.
