You may have heard John Green’s name a lot lately thanks to the film release of The Fault in Our Stars, based off of the 2012 novel of the same name. Did you know John Green is also one half of the VlogBrothers (the other half is his brother Hank), a duo inciting Nerdfighters everywhere to fight against world suck.
In one particular video from 2010, John used a sock puppet to answer fan questions. Among them, a question from a girl about how to keep the boyfriend who thinks she’s too smart for him. I’m going to level with you, I’ve yet to read either of the John Green novels on my bookshelf. But he wins all of the points for the way he answers this girl. And while I’m sad that she felt the need to ask the question at all, I’m ecstatic that there is someone like John Green spreading smart girl pride.
