Are you a Gleek?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 30th 2009 8:02PM
Gleek isn't an alien language or the newest cast member of The Real World. (Though it was the monkey sidekick on Super Friends). It's a geeky fan of Glee, FOX's musical dramedy series. Glee + geek = Gleek.

This works with other shows, too. If you're a geek about Lost, you're a Glost. If you're a geek about Chuck, then you're a Ghuck. If you're a geek about Greek, then you're a...Grreek? OK, so it doesn't always work.

Where I'm from in Minnesota, when you spit at someone through your teeth, that's called a "gleek." Apparently whoever came up with the fan term didn't do much research.

Highly doubt anyone really considers obscure Midwestern references when 'researching'.... pretty much anything, really. Try again.

It's not just the midwest. I have heard that term in the northeast as well. Before I even read your comment, I thought "what does the show have to do with spitting?"

according to the show "glee", a gleek is a glee club geek.
Going by that definition... I was a gleek.
Of course in the seventies it wasn't cool to call it glee club, it was chorus, robed chorus, concert chorus, Madrigals and so on...

What if you aren't so much a geek for chuck but just a fan of chuck? Would that make you a .....

Manufactured "fan" term? Good luck with that.

Bonus points for the Super Friends reference.
