Facebook's Terrifying Nerd

The attached poster for Facebook film The Social Network neatly illustrates how Hollywood will try and turn an awkward young computer nerd into an exciting character worthy of a big-budget Hollywood drama: light him like a serial killer.

Of course, with star writer Aaron Sorkin and his all-star team involved, there's not much point in painting Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as he was: a pasty, reclusive fellow coding PHP all day, first in his Harvard dorm room, then out in a rented home in Silicon Valley. Better to make him out as a sex fiend indulging in his many groupies or, as in this case, a scary man-boy conniver who lives in the shadow.

Proposed accurate copy: "YOU DON'T GET TO/500 THOUSAND/LINES OF CODE/WITHOUT SKIPPING/A FEW SHOWERS."

Or maybe: "MARK ZUCKERBERG/WILL EAT/YOUR FAMILY/FOR BREAKFAST."
