Yes, I Am This Much of a Geek

Dear folks at Saturday Night Live,

As someone who is admittedly into role-playing games, Star Trek, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, etc., I wanted to let you know how incredibly funny I found the sketch from last week's show in which Paris Hilton is advertising a phone sex line for nerds.

However, I do have one minor complaint. The references made during the sketch to things like a "nerf herder" and "pon farr" made it clear that your staff had done its research. Actually knowing what these things referred to made the sketch that much more hilarious.

However, I was disappointed when your "dungeon master" character told the unseen Dungeons & Dragons nerd on the other end of the phone line to throw a saving throw on his twelve-sided die. Anyone who has ever played Dungeons & Dragons knows that saving throws are thrown on twenty-sided dice, not twelve-sided.

Sincerely,
Michael A. Burstein

(P.S. Yes, I agree with you that it's pathetic that I have nothing better to do with my time than pick on this little point.)

Note to all: Yes, I really did send this email to NBC. Including the P.S.
