The number of times that our beloved Sheldon Cooper from hit TV series The Big Bang Theory bewildered us with his unbelievable academic intellect, can probably only be beaten by the number of times he’s bewildered us with his virtually non-existent understanding of normal human interaction.

Sheldon Cooper wasn’t just a weirdo genuis, though. There is so much more that went into making him… him. And that is why CBS has announced a presumably hilarious origin story for the theoretical-physics-superhero that is our Sheldon!

Pretty cool, huh? Now, I’m only saying this ’cause I’m excited, not because this article was one of Sheldon’s classic pranks… BAZINGA!
