Geek Syndicate


In 2006, the Geek Syndicate was born. And who came roaring out but a pair of crazy-yet-loveable geeks by the names David “Monts” Monteith and Barry “Nuge” Nugent.

Actually, thinking about it we've already had their wrath reteroactively.  Clover is missing for the first bit due to unholy technical difficulties, but there's plenty of waffle(s) to go around.  Join us as we hit upon Holy social networking, the most popular reason for time-travel, artistic baby recycling, the function of flab in prehistoric man, alternative uses for disabled toilets and Much, Much more...
