Nerd/Aesthete convergence.

I’m in a production of Shakespeare’s Comedy of Errors, and a friend came to see the show last night. Here is the wonderfully arcane series of texts we traded. Warning: These jokes require a clear memory of the game Bioshock, as well as serious familiarity with the Bard’s text. In other words, this will be funny to no one.

Josh: I’m seeing a definite Bioshock influence in the Comedy of Errors set .Deliberate or unintentional.

Me: Sadly unintended.

Me: No gods or kings!

Josh: Is Antipholus not entitled to the sweat of his own brow?

Me: Antipholus chooses, but Dromio obeys.

Josh: Haha. Well played, sir.

Yes, we are freakish nerds. We also made jokes about sandwiches made by Determinism.  Envy us.
