Joss Whedon Schools Me In The Way Of The Nerd

February 17th, 2006 | people I know

Found in the comments section of this post and later copped-to in email:

Who is this Ellis guy anyway? He thinks he all that cuz he wroted “Planety”. The facts is, KomiKon is AWESOME becuz people dress up like stuff — but nobody dresses like Warner Ellis, I guess, mister sour grapes. I talked to Sumner Glou and she said nobody ever mailed her body parts except for one time an arm and then a messenger brought her a thyroid gland but big deal, SERENDIPITY fans happen to be the most tastefullest fans who have extra or redundant body parts.

The best thing about Comicvention is the girls are pretty and the younglings are pretty (is that a legal issue?) and the men is pretty when they are Jedi but not so much Sith. I like to meet the Comedy Books artists (Not everyone wants to meet Angelina Michelle Watts, you know) and to buy a picture of an elf or dragon already. So stay off this grumpity webcamsite becuz Warner Ellis is just a grouchypants! I met a real General Griefuss, who amongst you can say that?

Peace, dog.

Altho that hulk hands thing was me. Sorry. Romulan Ale.

  1. It was actually a lot funnier when I didn’t know if it was Joss Whedon or not.

  2. I have a coworker at my paper who actually thinks the movie is called “Serendipity.” He’s a big fan. He talks about it often. I’ve given up correcting him.

  3. well if anybody was going to school you in the ways of a nerd it would have to be Joss Whedon

  4. Perfect revenge strategy, write a comic about vampires in space landing on a penal colony where they find out there is a girl with super powers who doesn’t have a date to the prison-prom.

  5. Joss HATES Warren – he wouldn’t let Warren write A SINGLE episode OF SerenITY. Everyone knows THIS.

  6. I’m quite amused at the second guess you made, though. No, I’m afraid not — I settled for having Kevin Sorbo assassinate you. A spoof illiterate comment in reference to Nerd Prom would be, in my advanced years, rather a shameless waste of what little remains of my brain.

    Back to my life of insane sex and mayhem. Or maybe sleep.

    SEM

  7. Wow, Joss Whedon is a lot older than I thought. Warren, get older. Hollywood likes old people. It worked for Frank Miller.

  8. And all I can think while reading this is, “No THIS is what going mad feels like.”

    Warren, you give the best braingasms, but when your powers combine with Joss…

    … I think you made teh interweb spooge.

  9. I’ve attempted to provide a helpful Cliff Notes summary.

  10. I’m on Bones!

  11. Shall we arrange a guy dressed as Spider Jerusalem to wap him across the head? Do we have a picture of this guy?

  12. Someone suggested that they team up. How great would it be if they wrote a series together, alternating issues? Each issue they could try to outdo the other with ridiculous plot twists and crazy cliff-hanger endings. And John Cassaday could draw it.

  13. Well, I know this much. Warren and Joss are eerily parallel in one important way. They created speculative fiction worlds that were close to being plausible, and then threw in psychics just to piss me off.

  14. I love how the small-type technorati tag contain “target+for+revenge”.
    hehe.

  15. [...] Warren Ellis gets a very interesting letter from a guy who turns out to be Joss Whedon. Heh. Who is this Ellis guy anyway? He thinks he all that cuz he wroted “Planety”. The facts is, KomiKon is AWESOME becuz people dress up like stuff — but nobody dresses like Warner Ellis, I guess, mister sour grapes. I talked to Sumner Glou and she said nobody ever mailed her body parts except for one time an arm and then a messenger brought her a thyroid gland but big deal, SERENDIPITY fans happen to be the most tastefullest fans who have extra or redundant body parts.

  16. You and Joss can catfight over Cassaday all you want, but you know in the end you’ll both end up taking Laura Martin to the dance.

    Among other things, she looks better in an evening gown that Cassaday.
