fan (fan)

noun
a person enthusiastic about a specified sport, pastime, or performer; devotee a baseball fan, movie fan

Etymology: contr. < fanatic


As you may know, being a fan of something mean that you are excited about that thing. Whatever it is that you are a fan of, you greatly enjoy it and it makes you happy. Facebook has taken "fans" to a whole new level of low and really lost the meaning of the word. This needs to be stopped by any means necessary. Here are a few examples of things that my facebook friends have recently become fans of:

Gay Marriage

This is not a gay bash, but how does one become a fan of gay marriage? Supporting gay marriage is one thing, but actually being a fan of it? Maybe it's just me, but I don't recall hearing any great stories about tailgating that gay wedding last week.Now I am sure that there are plenty of strange things that get my rocks off, but gay marriage doesn't do it for me. People better start living up to what they are preaching and get out there and start gay wedding crashing.

Expensive Things

Do you like paying a lot of money for things? Last time I checked, that was not exactly on my list of favorite things to do. Aparrently spending a lot of money is important enough for some people to actually be a fan of it. Where I gather with my friends to watch the football games on Sundays, there is a group of people out there equally excited for buying expensive things. I will stick to my pizza and buffalo wings and you can keep your Dulce Gabbana sunglasses and your Wu Tang Nike Dunks

Seinfeld

How do people like this show? I mean how do they like this show?
