Skim her Web site and you will discover she is also an accomplished ukuleleist, comic songwriter, and, surprisingly, more Christian than the Church Lady (though less obnoxious about it). Say, did I mention the handstands? Gulp.|

|Downtrodden intellectual? Fight back by smartly providing etymologies of your tormentor's aspersions: a geek is a side-show attraction (typically without physical deformity) who performs grotesque spectacles like biting the head off of live chickens.

However some have it that dork is actually the term for whale penis.
