Aight, I gave you a few days to marinade :p
Farmer Ted is a self-reference of Anthony Michael Hall’s character (otherwise known simply as “The Geek”) in Sixteen Candles. He also refers to himself as King of the dipshits:
The Geek: I know I came on kinda like a poozer on the bus tonight and everything. But… that’s just so my friends won’t think, you know, I’m a jerk.
Samantha: But they’re all pretty much jerks, though, aren’t they?
The Geek: Yeah, but, the thing is, I’m kinda like the leader, you know? Kinda like the king of the dipshits.
Samantha: Well, that’s pretty cool.
Damn. You ever get that feeling, once you’ve spoken or written something out, that it only really made any sense in your head? :p
