This was absolutely hilarious! The Crom question is not too arcane -- the Schwarzenegger films mention it, so you don't have to have read the books.

The nerd plays the PC on the Mac television ads, who always loses out to the much cooler and more laid back Mac guy.

I think you mean John Stewart, not Conan. You should check out The Daily Show - it often does a much better job than the so-called real news media.

Eh? Hodgman's question was who is the god that Conan the Barbarian worships. Nothing to do with TV barbarians.
