Celebrity Dad Faceoff 2.0

It seems that even Ricardo Montalban’s pecs and triceps of steel could not keep you from voting for Gregory Peck.

Allrighty then, let’s see if this next challenger can unseat Mr. Peck. Although not classically handsome, this next actor has always had his own special brand of charisma. And in looking for photos of him, I cannot believe how much his eldest son looks like him.

In a state of media blackout on both sides, we have only visual clues to decipher the horrible events of yesterday at Timmy’s house.

First, the stomach-churning trails of blood…

I killed a unicorn

Then this, a sketch of the suspect provided by Timmy’s big sister Ellen, who was hiding in the shed with her boyfriend at the time of the attacks.

It’s a tough quandary: what to give to celebrate the birth of a newly-hatched nerd or nerdlette? Nothing old-fashioned like a ball or a stuffed animal that actually looks like, you know, an animal, obviously. Their parents wouldn’t know how to use it. Nothing cutting-edge either, because you mere civilian could never be expected to know about the pure unadulterated and Wil Wheaton-endorsed awesomesauce that is whatever is the latest thing on Gizmodo.

So you try to play it safe. You split the difference. You go down the middle of the road, where you find nothing but yellow lines and roadkill. But it doesn’t have to be this way. You can gift with dignity. You can gift with style. You can, in fact, even gift with 100% nerd-approved awesomesauce (on the side, please, it’s very fattening).

But there is only one way to produce a nerdgift that does all of these things at once.

That’s right: knitting.

Combining the edgy “ballhands” look of the nerdbiquitous Wii with woolly winter warmth, these adorable little knobs are the perfect ending to any tiny arm. I mean, come on, we all know nerds don’t hold hands.
