Sometimes Saturday Night Live can perfectly capture the behaviors of real people out in the world. This is not one of those times.
This past Saturday, SNL aired a painfully stereotypical sketch about three D&D playing nerds that feels straight out of a bygone era of nerd-culture.
In response to the sketch (which didn't seem to go over that well with anyone, including the studio audience), Twitter user @nicterhorst decided to show the world what being a modern D&D nerd actually looks like.
It turns out being a nerd actually looks pretty good nowadays.
Dungeons & Dragons players everywhere responded with their selfies!
In our modern age, people of all different kinds enjoy role playing games like D&D.
These players look pretty rad!
It seems SNL missed the mark in a pretty dramatic way...
Next time, before SNL writes a character sketch, they'd better make sure their take is a fresh one.
Thanks for posting your selfies, adventurers. You all look great—excelsior!
