Geek Humor of the Moment
[On the programming language Perl:] "You promise people answers to all their questions, but you're not ready for a real relationship. You like to guess what people want, but tend to jump to conclusions. When other people would say 'what, really?', you've already gotten out a ball-peen hammer and a tub of beeswax."
The kind of weird part is for me that I hadn't heard of 6 of the 25 entries. Oh well. Kind of harkens back to the old Shoot Yourself in the Foot lists from way back when.

Geek Product of the Moment
Top 10 Geek Watches...I really like the first one,the Fossil Frank Gehry Watch, which uses the same kind of rounding that people use when telling the time, or at least the way they used to before digital watches...

Geek Quote of the Moment
"He gave her a look that you could have poured on a waffle."
...maybe not a sterling example of geek quote, but from a geek site.
