His eyes are so weary that he can’t see straight?

Thanks for the catch. I’ve emailed the shirt team.

Brilliant work, Daniele!

What do you call a collective of nerds? I like nerd herd, for the bonus Chuck reference.

Guys, that's just a typo... right file has been sent already and the correct design will be printed.

Awesome illustration. Well done. I think it's hard to choose which label applies to me. I switch my nerd hats up a few times a day

Then there needs to be a "Grammar Nerd" added. ;) OK, really, I mean that as a joke.

The typo has been fixed, and the Binge WatCHer has been forced to turn it off and get some rest! ;) Thanks, guys!

Mega nerd or nerd to the Nth degree. I am ashamed to state what my N value is. It is faster for me to state which ones I don't qualify for.

Just had to go there, huh? I can't definitively state that no Asians or other lighter skinned races aren't depicted in the drawings, but I also don't have special snowflake goggles that determine how I look at the world.

Since the typo was fixed, please throw some darker shading on at least one of these nerds so we can then argue about why the token minority/minorities were chosen as that kind of nerd.

I mean, if you're going to take the shirt design to this place, how could you have missed that overwhelmingly the depictions are gingers? I mean, just because my family and I fit the stereotypes posted in those graphics and we all happen to be gingers doesn't mean a thing, right??

By the way, I'm being sarcastic. I think this shirt design is great, and not just because it is relatable to my little clan of nerds ♥

And what is will all the day-walkers with orange hair?

While we are picking nits, let's just overlook that geeks are not a type of nerd.

That's an insult to nerds.

1 - Give me credit for not starting with "Actually..."
2 - Try to read the post in the voice of Niel Goldman from Family Guy.

You can't take a shit without someone pointing out the lack of diversity in your diet. The artists are limited in the number of colors they can use.

Great job, Daniele!

You apparently can't make this observation anymore without facing a wave of hatred from the alt-right as it crawls from its pit to decry the oppression of "political correctness" (aka inclusion).

"Equality feels like oppression when it removes your own entitlement or privilege."

"Alt Right"?! That's actually really insulting.

It has nothing to do with bigotry of any kind. It's simple as:
-The artist had six colors to work with. That should be enough of an explanation, but I'll continue...
-He's not from the US, so his cultural sensitivities are not the same as ours.
-Most of them are redheads! That's only a trait in 2% of the world's population. Two have blue hair! That's not even natural!

-They are cartoons on a shirt made with time constraints by one person. Maybe you should message Rick & Morty while you're at it?

This is not an issue worth arguing and insulting over. Save your energy and outrage for when you see actual hate crimes happening in real life, or at least for when it comes time to vote.

As a foreign born citizen who's been told to go back to his own country plenty of times, I'm yet to see this kind of zeal for equality in real life.

Great work LetterQ! This is great! Don't pay attention to the haters. You know what they say, "Damned if you do, damned if you dont" You did a great job even with a very limited color palette.

I love this design.

I also know nerd opinions so I came here looking for arguments about missing categories or other some minutiae.

I love John Hodgman's speech to Obama at the Radio & Television Correspondents’ Association dinner

"I'm a big fat geek. And there are those of you who will say, 'Wait a minute, didn't he earlier say he's a nerd? There's a difference between geeks and nerds, of course,' and to you people I say 'Shut up nerds!'"

I am not disappointed.
