Call me a square one if you will, but it’s not impossible for nerds to be cool
There are two big spaces that I fit in, and it is rare that I fit in both
I fit the best in spaced, but that wasn’t for too long
And when I was round, I did my best to fit then, too
Though it is not my shape, I do have a fondness for cones

Who am I?

There is at least one clue to this person/thing in each line, but list any that you think apply.

The answer is:

Simon Pegg

Call me a square one if you will, but it’s not impossible for nerds to be cool

Square peg. He's a well known nerd.

There are two big spaces that I fit in, and it is rare that I fit in both

He appears in both Star Wars and Star Trek, the only actor I can think of to do both.

I fit the best in spaced, but that wasn’t for too long

His brilliant but short lived sitcom, Spaced

And when I was round, I did my best to fit then, too

Run Fatboy Run

Though it is not my shape, I do have a fondness for cones

The entire Cornetto trilogy

    $\begingroup$ Nice job, @alaxluthor. You hit it perfectly across the board. I didn't even need to throw in anything about an alien or alienating people. Good first answer! $\endgroup$ – raisinghellyer Jan 5 '16 at 14:37

I think the answer is

Breasts. (Just to prove my innocence I would say that i searched about conical objects and got this )

Call me a square one if you will, but it’s not impossible for nerds to be cool

Calling a breast of square shaped is not cool

There are two big spaces that I fit in, and it is rare that I fit in both

Talked about their shape and bras this whole time.

    $\begingroup$ What's wrong with this answer. Why the down votes. The clues fit this answer as well. +1. $\endgroup$ – AeJey Jan 5 '16 at 6:03

    $\begingroup$ @manshu While I'm certainly a fan of this answer (wink, wink), and it did make me smile, it is not what I was looking for. It was a creative stab taken and my guess is that the down votes were from people thinking you weren't taking the question seriously, or from people not taking your answer seriously. $\endgroup$ – raisinghellyer Jan 5 '16 at 14:32

    $\begingroup$ @raisinghellyer i took this puzzle seriously. But the point is that i solve puzzle to learn something new. If the puzzle is about something that does not need to be known then i just skip it. I am perfectly aware of the fact that puzzle are to make u think in different way but if i can't relate myself to the puzzle than there is no meaning to solve it or maybe i should say i cant solve it. $\endgroup$ – manshu Jan 5 '16 at 14:43

    $\begingroup$ You are totally on to something. But I think it's more about bras then breasts. They used to keep them 'spaced' - now we like cleavage. Rarely are breasts conical, but they still fit into 50's era bras somehow. It was either prior to that, or after that, that they were 'square', like a doctor's mask. I myself, have a fondness for conical (50's style) bras. And when I'm 'round (around), I try my best to also fit (my hands in there). Vulgarity be dammed, finish the story. $\endgroup$ – Mazura Jan 10 '16 at 16:33
