The following image is one of the best products of internet geekdom so far, distilling three disparate geekinesses into one single hilarious image. Of the people that I know who read this blog, I can only think of three who might see all the connections: Will, Nikchick, and Michael Rawdon. Maybe more of you will — I don’t know. (Many of you will get two of three.)
Regardless, it’s hilarious.
Here are the three geek things taking place here, in order from most obvious to least obvious:
- Star Trek‘s “The Trouble with Tribbles” is being retold.
- A joke about Settlers of Catan is being made.
- This is a parody of lolcats.
This image is actually just one from a larger LOLTrek series that retells the entire “The Trouble with Tribbles” episode in lolcat dialect. It’s funny stuff.
