Robot Chicken Embarrassment

Another Senseless Guest Post by Static

Imagine being a huge geeky-nerdy fan of one of your favorite shows..which you are..and have someone dash those dreams and hopes into the dirt, making you feel like a complete tool. Well, that's what happened to me the other day.

After posting an article about a favorite show of mine on, my discovery that the Cartoon Network-Adult Swim series Robot Chicken in fact sucks, was a rather disheartening experience.

Let's have a look shall we?

Sorry, but I friggin' HATE Robot Chicken. The following is EVERY ROBOT CHICKEN SKETCH EVER:
1. Use characters from sit-coms and cartoons that aired between 1980 and 1990. If said characters aren't present, then something of this sort should occur (i.e. something involving the balls):
2. Make said characters act like every-day individuals in every-day situations. Resist keeping them in-character; they must act OPPOSITE to their character. Therefore, Darth Vader is afraid of spiders and Charlie Brown kills baby animals...for fun!
3. Rinse and repeat.

@ Julio - But that's what makes Robot Chicken so endearing.

Robot Chicken makes fun of mediocre sketch comedy formulae, while proudly supporting it at the same time...

Or something like that.

We're vulnerable here, please stop toying with our fragile self-conception!

Clearly, you can sense the shame in my response. But even more shameful is what other people like to do when they think about Robot Chicken.

chicken man the colonel's secret recipe

Geejus kriiist that's disgusting!

Just when you thought Project Julio would dispense with the shock tactics, huh? Nope! icanhascheezburger will have more uploads like this in the future to share with PJ/NPH readers!

Note: Chicken maniac..err Chicken man's picture can easily be found just be Google-ing the keyword "colonel's secret recipe"..either Google fucked up, or that is in fact the Colonel's secret recipe.

Anyway, as if this wasn't enough, I also have a confession.
To further distinguish shame from embarrassment, I wish to point to two types of embarrassment. These I will call embarrassment as self-consciousness and embarrassment as mild shame.

In the latter type, embarrassment as mild shame is related to a negative self-evaluation. For example, in reference to Kentucky Fried Chicken, a person's negative self-evaluation of eating is not associated with the amount of food that he or she consumed when not hungry, but was linked to their perceptions of being restricted from those foods leading to

1) an eating disorder and becoming very thin, or
2) not caring and becoming grossly overweight, or
3) having a balanced lifestyle approach and indulging on occasion, but looking healthy in appearance
4) a complete fuckwit who puts a rubber chicken in their butt anytime Robot Chicken is mentioned and then takes a picture of it which ends up on the net
5) following number four the chicken stuffer's identity becomes known

In the first type, embarrassment appears to be more shyness than shame. Such as

1) being a self-unaware nerd who likes Robot Chicken
2) being a self-aware nerd who loves Robot Chicken
3) wanting to put a rubber chicken in your butt anytime Robot Chicken is mentioned

Self-consciousness, such as the embarrassment of admitting to enjoying the show, Robot Chicken, led to embarrassment and humiliation and my self-conscious discovery that I am a HUGE nerd. But I'm not as much as a nerd as say..Barack Obama.

At this point it is probably pretty obvious that I'm a bona fide nerd. I was fully aware of this fact before just now, but this morning after I woke up, I had a legitimate full nerd moment that I can't deny at all. I sat at my laptop, closed my eyes for a few seconds and...

recited Pi to as many decimal places as I could remember.

I got to 3.14159265359 and was actually excited about my abilities until I suddenly realized I had settled into full nerd territory. The worst part about it is that I'm not ashamed about it at all (possible negative self-evaluation or embracing that self-evaluation and making it a positive one).

Most people who think they know me, don't know the full extent of my nerdiness. In reality, probably only 2-3 people fully realize just how much of a nerd I am. That's about all the people I know really...I tend to only display around 22.87% of my nerdiness to the general populace, and around 18.07% of that is through my blog. But 99.9% of my readers KNOW this already.

The other .1% are either clueless, or are just self-unaware nerds.

With this giant leap into the land of Geakuh (pronounced: Geek), I may just begin to reveal more and more of my nerdiness to the world.

Clue #1 - I like Star Wars. Stay tuned for moar kthxbye!
