This truck driver hauling a tractor-trailer load of computers stops for
a beer.  As he approaches the bar he sees a big sign on the door saying
NERDS NOT ALLOWED-ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!"  He goesin and sits down.
The bartender comes over to him, sniffs,  says he smells kind of nerdy,
asks him what he does for a living.  The truck driver says he drives a
truck, and the smell is just from the computers he is hauling.  The
bartender says OK, truck drivers are not nerds, and serves him a beer.
As he is sipping his beer, a skinny guy walks in with tape around his 
glasses, a pocket protector with twelve kinds of pens and pencils, and a
belt at least a foot too long.  The bartender, without saying a word,
pulls out a shotgun and blows the guy away.  The truck driver asks him
why he did that. The bartender said not to worry, the nerds are
overpopulating the Silicon Valley, and are in season now. You don't even
need a license, he said.
So the truck driver finishes his beer, gets back in his truck, and heads
back onto the freeway.  Suddenly he veers to avoid an accident, and the
load shifts.  The back door breaks open and computers spill out all over
the freeway.  He jumps out and sees a crowd already forming, grabbing up
the computers.  They are all engineers, accountants and programmers
wearing the nerdiest clothes he has ever seen.  He can't let them steal
his whole load.  So remembering what happened in the bar, he pulls out
his gun and starts blasting away, felling several of them instantly.
A highway patrol officer comes zooming up and jumps out of the car
screaming at him to stop.  The truck driver said, "What's wrong?  I
thought nerds were in season."
"Well, sure," said the patrolman, "But you can't bait 'em."
