And, knurd (original spelling) actually means the opposite of drunk, so... Not to mention anything about the last post or anything but the poster would have worked perfectly well if a third figure saw a penis... and the number was itself printed backwards.

@GabrielsThoughts: Actually the first documented use of the word nerd (spelled correctly) came from Dr Seuss' If I Ran the Zoo in 1950. Knurd is new and defined in Urban dictionary, which is not a real dictionary. Not even related, as it's a pun off the word Drunk spelled backwards.

QUote According to unverifiable sources—and Wikipedia—it was invented by a Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute student and just caught on. Oral tradition claims the word was originally spelled “knurd”—“drunk” backwards—and was used to describe young people who studied instead of partying. So, if we combine written intent with oral tradition, a nerd is an animal who studies a lot—a bookworm! Maybe Seuss was onto something after all…
