Need a good laugh? Try this lighthearted list of the most awkward photos of traditional nerds standing next to their stereotypical arch nemesis: women. Making fun of the socially awkward as they pose next to hot girls is an Internet staple. Some of these pictures are Internet classics and have shown us why being a booth babe is probably one of the most emotionally taxing jobs in the world. Others just make us sad.
Usually, pictures of nerds have a slightly tragic quality (unless we're talking about hot pictures of girl nerds). But these pics of nerds are full of fun. In honor of the Comic-Con season, this is a taste of things to come.
Nerds next to women: from the real, to the synthetic, to the animated. Enjoy.
