All your electoral votes are belong to us

For most of you the headline of this post is indecipherable. But this nerdy joke might make sense to Barack Obama…

Apparently, the President-elect jokes about dilithium crystals (the original Star Trek), is a Harry Potter fan, and can correctly name Superman’s father. Read about what a shocking geek he is.

Best of all, he might understand the Internet meme “All your base are belong to us.” This originally came from the Sega video game Zero Wing and has now attained cult status. Now the phrase is everywhere. Everywhere. When it was spoken to Obama, his reply was “What you say?”, which is basically the secret handshake.

Looks like somebody set up us the bomb…
