Napoleon Jerzamite...

Well I'm sure by now many of us have had the pleasure of seeing the movie "Napoleon Dynamite." It has quickly grown and turned into a college cult classic. I first viewed the film over the Christmas break when I went home. When I returned to SHU in January, everyone was talking about Napoleon and his crazy antics. The reason I am having this sudden outburst of Napoleonism is because today in my EL150 class (Intro. to Lit Study) Dr. Jerz was acting very Napoleon like. He made a comment regarding our class which was, "People that have great skills are commended for them." Suddenly it hit me. Where had I heard such a line before? Napoleon!! Yay!!! I believe Nappy said, "Girls only want boyfriends that have great skills!"
It was all becoming so much more clear to me as I began to think of other comparisons between Napoleon and Jerz. They both wear glasses, and have probably played their fair share of Sci-fi games. They believe in things of the mystic and magical realm like Ligers and Star Wars. A perfect match. Then another revelation came to me in this moment of lucidity. Dr. Jerz is a master of disguise because not only is he Britney Spears (according to a speculation by Moira) he may also be Napoleon Dynamite. Which brings me to my much anticipated conclusion that if Dr. Jerz is Napoleon and Britney he makes a lot of $$$$... but he loves us (EL150) and teaching so much that he doesn't quit his day job. Thanks for loving what you do Dr. J, we'll keep your secret.

I knew Dr.Jerz reminded me of someone! thank you so much for clearing that up. now i have to wonder if Dr. Jerz stores tator tots in his pants pockets...


The inspiration for this blog entry was so clear to me as if it was in a dream. Gotta love the Jerz. He's a funny guy. Good sense of humor about himself as well. =) Kudos.

Hmm... this pop culture reference goes under my head... or under my high brow.. or something.

The glasses do seem oddly similar. I don't wear that style anymore, though -- I'm a one-thin-metal-bar-between-the-lenses guy now, not a bar-across-the-top-too guy.


Excellent movie, excellent. You are right- it is a cult classic now. I can quote that thing to death!

Jerz does lack the completely expressionless face though and the Hispanic companion...haha.

Caroline Jones:

Leslie- this is seriously hillarious. And so true. They resemble each other so much. You were so creative with the title Jerzamite... haha. Your blog is "flipping" great!
