"God, it's just SO BIG, SIR."  
Protip: Standing at the counter and one-upping a gaming store clerk's hobbies and interests does not win you brownie points with the staff. It's not impressive, and it doesn't make you special. It makes you a Douchebag Customer (tm) and it makes us HATE YOU.  We don't care about the size of your Geek-Pen0r...we really don't.

So Pink and I are standing around one day talking about the horror movie spectrum, which happens to be my pastime, everything from very high quality horror movies to the bad, b-grade stuff they show on Sci-Fi channel in the middle of the night, the stuff that plays like a trainwreck, it's so terrible you can't stop watching. I also adore the Japanese horror and V-Release markets, and I own a great collection of them and am very familiar with those industries...I like to make myself an expert. What it comes down to is that in that field, as well as in the RPG industry, it's hard to out-geek me...just like you can't out-geek Pink in the manga or anime market, she is going to know more than any customer who is not a direct part of the industry. 

Most people grok this and accept it.

So we're in the middle of a conversation about V-release, (the Japanese direct-to-video market, which is actually much different and more well-looked upon than the US straight-to-video market), I think it was probably a Miike Takashi flick, and I seem to remember commenting that when Miike directs anything involving violence or rape, he doesn't beat around the bush. I'm not afraid to admit that some of his work is hard for me to watch...hell, that's why I like it.

Some guy standing at the counter who saw an opportunity to unzip and show off his massive geek-penis, throws down on the conversation and starts talking about how he's never seen a horror movie that phased him, and that, "Once when I went to see X horror movie, I ended up laughing so hard that some asshole reported me and I was asked to leave."

Well fuckbag, I was probably the asshole that did it

At some point, Pink quipped that she doesn't go to premier nights (even though we have a press box spots and guest tickets to most relevant movies) because of people who heckle it and ruin it for other people...and I have to say I agree...but Douchebag's geek-pen0r swinging was already well underway and steadily gaining momentum, and he was going on about how he eats during movies like Saw and Hostel, etc.  It's funny how at some point the geek-pen0r makes its owner deaf to the conversation's progress in the name of just getting one... more... douchebag... comment... out... because you know, God, us little geek-girls must be so impressed with the sheer SIZE of it.

Movie-Douche eventually walked out, 
climbed into his massive Hummer H2,
and drove into the sunset.

This seems like the sort of person that would drive a Hummer.

Right? We both stood there staring at it for the longest time, as if to say, "...define 'stereotype', little Timmy."

It was surreal.
