It's All Geek To Me

I heard a radio commercial today advertising a "Geekend in Savannah." The commercial was fine until this segment:

"What's a geek? A geek is someone who spends time doing geeky things. You know, like surfing the Internet, blogs, and twitter."

What? It's 2009, sir. By your definition everyone under the age of 35 and most of the population over 35 would be considered a geek. The only non geeks would be the very elderly and people in vegetative comas.

No, I'll tell you what a geek is. A geek is someone who unabashedly likes this:

One of the greatest movies of my childhood and one of the greatest songs of my teenagehood? Yes! Now that's fine geekery.
