Hello, and welcome to the forums!ambar said:HI:
Can someone explain me what does jeez what a geek means, please??
"Sarcastic humor" makes sense. I'm guessing your suspicions are correct since your friends probably don't really think you're a geek.ambar said:Thanks Elroy!!
Sorry there´s not context, it was a birthday card I´ve received and with your explanation now it´s very clear to me. I think it´s kind of sarcastic humor.
Sarcastic, it´s that ok??
Me, Me, Me - not serious - but I lived next door to the kid who would eat worms on requestfoxfirebrand said:The origin of geek in 19th-century circus jargon is interesting. It used to be extremely negative, applied to anyone outside the circus, as did freak. It meant bizarrely and repulsively "different," like the kid who ate bugs and could belch out a melody and fart on command.
