A trucker hauling computers and accessories is driving down the highway late one night when he sees a truck stop on the side of the road.
He pulls over for a pit stop and approaching the door he sees a sign that says: NO NERDS.
He shrugs it off and enters. He’s greeted by the end of a shotgun barrel in his face.
“Are you a nerd?” the bartender asks.
“No, I’m a truck driver,” he replies.
He’s allowed to come in, so he orders a cup of coffee, sits at the bar and drinks it.
While he drinks his coffee, a man walks in wearing his pants up to his chest, a plaid shirt, pocket protector and thick-framed glass.
The bartender pulls out his shotgun and blows him away.
“What the hell did you do that for?” asks the trucker.
“Well,” the bartender answers, “It’s nerd hunting season.”
“Nerd hunting season?” asks the trucker, confused.
“Yeah. See, the nerd population in this town is getting out of hand, so we’ve opened up a nerd hunting season.”
So, with that, the trucker finishes his coffee and goes back on the road.
While he drives the car in front of him suddenly swerves and wrecks.
To avoid becoming part the disaster, he swerves to get out of way. The swerve’s to hard.
His tractor trailer flips and he dumps his load all over the road.
He gets out of his truck to see nerds coming from all directions grabbing everything they can.
He doesn’t know what to do. He’s gotta stop this.
Remembering what the bartender told him, he goes back to the truck and pulls out his gun and starts picking them off, one by one.
While doing this, a highway patrol officer starts running after him, waving his arms screaming, “Stop! Stop!”
“What?” the trucker asks, confused, “I thought it was nerd hunting season.”
“Well, yeah,” the officer answers, “but you can’t bait ’em!”
