Well, that's it. I'm waiting for hell to freeze over now.
Real video and pics to come ASAP, but I just witnessed it on live cable: John "I'm a PC"/"Resident Expert" Hodgman concludes his wry jokefest on the D.C. "Nerds' Takeover" before the Radio & TV Correspondents' Association dinner by turning to President Obama two seats away--yep, the Vulcan-in-Chief, according to some mainstream pundits—and offering, "You have been, and always shall be, my friend."
Complete with the you-know what gesture.
It will be all over the tube and Tubes in minutes, I know.
What's doubly funny is, I just saw Nick Meyer earlier today. He must be a proud quotee.
UPDATE: I'm slow, but yep—it's a sensation. Along with (shhhh) the true subtext of Hodgman's nerd/jock subtext of bona fides and second-guessing among the faithful.
