At the website of Rogaland Theatre the following, among other things, is written about Nerdene* (The Nerds):

"In the permafrost, 1300 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle, the first and largest security storage for humour is to be established. A humour bank in case of disaster. To it, boxes of humour material from all over the world are to be sent, for the sake of safe and secure long-term storage. The purpose of 'The World Bank for humour' is to preserve the great variation and diversity of all humour genres.

If 'the big bang' happens, the world should yet again be able to have fun.

This ground-breaking, global collection work starts in September 2016. 'The World Bank for humour, Rogaland division' is led by a group of researchers who will enter the humour analysis full-on. They will test and probe the expression forms of humour, and go in depth in selected examples, that may be vital for the generations to come."
