Lamar’s limp-wristed throwing technique. Gilbert’s adorable DOS program of that dancing, hand-holding couple. Booger’s badass collection of pit-stained T-shirts, like “Gimmie Head Til I’m Dead” and “High on Stress!” Lewis boning that cheerleader on the moon and her weirdly positive response to their nonconsensual union. And dear God: the Greek Olympics talent show. Revenge of the Nerds is more than a classic Big Guy versus Little Guy tale: It’s a series of clips, quotes and images that when collected, reinforce the adult human you’ve become. For that reason, it makes sense that the crew of Adams College would be targets of a themed belated July birthday gathering, like Friday’s public event at the Prophet Bar (2548 Elm St.): You wouldn’t be you without them. Dress as your favorite Tri-Lamb, Omega Mu, Alpha Beta or panty-raided cheerleader. There’ll be tricycle racing, roller-skating, cardboard cut-out picture structures and pie-throwing. Extra kudos to anyone dressed as the housecleaning robot. Who knows, maybe you’ll switch glasses with someone special who can finally answer the question: “Would you rather live in the ascendancy of a civilization or during its decline?” Sealion performs with added tunes by DJ Hammertimez and DJ Farrell Cat. There’s no cover and $4 you-call-its. Doors at 9 p.m. Visit theprophetbar.com.
