You are of course most welcome.

But here I am sitting in ... quasi-awe at how what for me was a quick
light-weight diversion has exploded into a massive debate on this

There is so little in the way of geek humour compared to many other
trades / professions (did you hear the one about the lawyer who ...).
So, when someone does a cute / clever bit about geeks (especially
women geeks) I think it should be promoted / encouraged.

The fact that the musically style might not be your favourite (and I
will admit rap is not among my favourite musical genres (but then, I
am also not a big country music fan)) is quite secondary.

In other words folks, like the song, don't like it, or whatever, I
don't care. But please don't bring race into this picture...
