    Question Meaning of "geek-burger"

    Dear Sir or Madam,

    I don't clearly understand the meaning of geek-burger.
    According to "Urban Dictionary" on the web, geek-burger is the same as "nerd bomber".

    My questions are:

    1. Could you please tell me the meaning and ussage of "geek-burger"?
    2. Is "geek-burger" still used? (Is this word out-of-date?)

    I am looking forward to hearing from you.

    "bomber" is a type of jacket and "burger" stands for the complete works, as in all-dressed (from an all-dressed hamburger); i.e., glasses, braces, and zits.

    Yes and no. It's a disparaging term. There's a site on-line with scripts from an American sitcom called "Full-House". It's "family" rated! (I had the site address to show you, but lost it, sorry.) The actors, young teenagers, used the term "geek-burger". Imagine that!

    If you're interested in the script, try searching under <full-house geek-burger>.

    All the best.

    Full house? You nerd bomber!

    Lynn, if you need some further guidance regarding insults, please feel free to Pm me, i can suggest a wide range of more usable, vulgar, and stereotypical cuss words.

    Or i could just post them here, when I get the green light from the mods.

    When a language point is being discussed, we have no objection to the use and inclusion of spicy language.

    1- As 'burger' is meant rudely, things like braces and zits are part of the negative image of a geek. It implies that a geek-burger has all these things.
    2- I wouldn't

    1 he was explaining what burger means in this context. as was said before, "burger" stands for the complete works, as in all-dressed (from an all-dressed hamburger). its an unofficial meaning that would not really make sense in a proper phrase.
    2 those make no sense

    geek-burger is a weak insult. it would make sense to english speakers, but the sense they would make of it is that it is a weak insult

    Re: Meaning of "burger"

    Just came across another meaning for (geek)burger: one who flips burgers (i.e., works in a fast food place); e.g., "a burger-flipping geek".

    Re: Meaning of "geek-burger"

    then again, an insult is an insult, and alot of insults are nonsensical gibberish anyway. To my knowledge there is no definitive guide on insult usage I wouldnt worry about it too much, lynn.

    thanks for hte green light tdol
    however i will need information on the intended victim before constructing an insult. these will include victims race, country of birth, country of residence, political stance, sexual orientation, height, weight, appearance, etc.



    thanks!
