Best Invite Acceptance of 2009

At my client site, I offered a dry-run of an upcoming talk on Monads (stay tuned for more info). In my email to the team, I gave some fair warnings that the talk would be ├╝ber-geeky.

One wag responded:

Oooh... a brown bag on material that's inherently dry, well outside my comfort zone, and irrelevant to my future? I'M IN!

This is a wonderfully succinct definition of being a geek. These are my people.

ps. Before you begin to riot, Haskell/FP fans: neither my respondent nor I truly think monads are irrelevant.

Btw, the tone of the email was not sarcastic but sincere with dry wit. That's why I posted this.
