Forks, Washington, Might Be the Nerdiest Place on Earth (in a Bad Way)

I’m a nerd. Topless Robot is a nerd site. Generally, while I might poke fun at nerds who carry their obsessions too far, I recognize that I often do the exact same thing, and thus, it’s hard for me to maliciously mock people who are living out their nerdiest fantasies, no matter how embarrassing they are.

But then I see stuff like the above video, an MTV special on Forks, Washington — the real town that Stephanie Meyer chose to set Twilight in, despite never having been there — and all the Twilight groupies who have flocked there to get genially fleeced by the local populace, and I just can’t withhold my disdain. I know it’s not really fair, but I can’t help it. I think it might have something to do with the fact that Twilight is really, really awful. (Via FilmDrunk)
