Fanboys

Can anyone explain to me what this phrase means? I know I sound like a complete arse asking this, but I just see it all the time, and I'm all, i'm, i'm all confused.

*stifles a laugh*

a fan boy, or girl, if you will, is a person either utterly consumed by the movie/game/movie-game franchise they adore. They are often overly enthusiastic, have a tendancy to write crappy fanfics, and are, for the most part, virgins.

Sentance useage...

"The fanboy dresses as Manny for Halloween"
"The fangirl hangs posters of Guybrush in her room."

"The Orca kills fanboys who flirt with her."

class dismissed.

Not that there is anything at all wrong with dressing as Manny for Halloween.

(For the record, I haven't ever dressed as Manny... but know someone who has)

well...

at least,if you do Manny, you can tell people that you are the Grim Reaper, which is true, so...if you don't advertize, everyone will think you are just a Mexican-influenced Death. Only fellow fans will know.

But as Guybrush?...

OH GOD THRIK!
I WAS TRYING TO FORGET THOSE!

Well, a fanboy dressed up as Guybrush can cleverly say that he's merely a wimpy pirate. I imagine that kids dress up like that all the time.

Or maybe, the fanboy does not go out on Halloween at all because he's at home playing his favorite game..?


The man who hesitates goes home with jack. And his kids hate him.

if you mean the lit thing...i think it's "for, and, nor, but, or, yet" and i'm not sure what the "s" is...i think it's 'so'?

hey, i haven't been here in a really long time.
