The fact it's not cheap is easy pickings for a joke here and there. Such things as, you need to take up a second job in order to support it. Having a kid/drug habit is cheaper. Selling internal organs is a good way to afford the newest models, etc.

Or poke fun at the fact it's nerdy. "As if math class wasn't bad enough, I go back for seconds in my free time." or "Though it's not the toughest recreational activity around like football or karate, the chance of head injury is severely decreased."

There's plenty of other stuff, like some of the funny Ork models work great for comedy. Or just take a jab at the factions themselves. If there was ever a poster boy for sexual frustration, a space marine would be it.

And so forth.

There's plenty of room for making fun of the other races too. "People say the greenskins are always looting, but I think that's just racial profiling." or the fact they talk like Jamaicans with speech impediments. The fact the Tau are overcompensating with all their fancy equipment. The fact the Tyranids are probably secretly weak to a can of bug spray. etc.

Bug spray? Might get used?

F***ed up shit... I have only managed to scrap together ca. 2-3 and a half minute of material... Well, guess I will have to come up with something while I am telling all of this... Might say a few word about Jez Goodwin, metion (I only said mention) Lord of the Rings, and then I will talk about copyright bullshit and also give my thanks to all of you who have helped me and then I will also mention this awesome forum...

you may be able to fill up a few minutes by saying 'any questions', and then taking your time to answer said questions?

Either way good luck mnate

Just wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone who helped me with this one! The presentation was a huge success! I talked for 7 minutes (It felt like 2 and a half) and when I asked "Any questions?" I was forced to answer them for the next ten minutes...

Thank you everyone!

Huzzah for Doelago, who I have now promoted to the rank of "Chief Advertiser"! You should branch out to a larger community by doing the next presentation naked!
