Homo nerdicus

(In a hoarse whisper). This is a rare sight indeed. Our cameraman had
been waiting in his hide-out for an utterly boring three weeks, for this
moment - waiting to take a snapshot of this rare breed of British tourist.
Notice how unaccustomed to the bright daylight he is -- it is often said
that members of this species are virtually nocturnal in habit, preferring
to spend their daylight hours sitting inside darkened rooms, looking at
computer screens.
They come out for short periods in the evenings in the search for food to
eat. Their numbers are very low in the wild, as they are too shy when it
comes to meeting members of the opposite sex... so mating doesn't often
occur. Most of their sexual activity is said to be virtual, occurring on
their computer screens... as this is being recorded for family viewing,
we are unable to show this virtual mating activity.
So I feel very priviledged indeed to be able to see this individual, and
to be able to show him to you rarely do we see Nerdicus in this
habitat, which must be so alien to him.
Next week, we'll explore the Canary Wharf in London for related tribes of
the human species.
