Multiple geek layers

Even I was surprised at the multiple layers of geek embodied in this site: Wookieepedia.

Internet | Wiki | Wookie | Star Wars | 49,355 articles since March 2005

I heard Howard Stern mention it on today's show in connection with a funny interview one of the Stern show's correspondents, Gary Garver, did with a man at a recent Star Wars convention who was in costume as Darth Nihilus. In the "Wookieenews" section of the site, for June 19, 2007, there is already an entry that states:
  • Howard Stern—an influencial radio shock jock mentioned Wookieepedia, and proceeded to read from the Wookieepedia entry on Darth Nihilus.[1]
Gary Garver took a pretty hostile, "how long have you been living with your mother" attitude toward the guy and several others he interviewed and the variety of reactions was quite entertaining.

The funniset part is they are now using samples of the "Dark Nihilus" guy's voice to place phony phone calls. Very funny stuff.
