i am 52% nerdy, but not white

Check out Weird Al’s infamous “White and Nerdy” video, a satire of Ridin’ by Chamillionaire. Here’s the lego version. How nerdy am I? I downloaded the lyrics and checked off each trait that I possessed. I gave myself a few partial credits. Click below the fold to see how I fared.
