Fanboys. The name itself strikes terror into the hearts of anyone who has a normal sex life. Some people might ask what the difference is between a fan and a fanboy. Well, I'll tell you. A fan of Star Wars might buy a Yoda bobblehead for his desk or own different versions of the trilogies. A fanboy would name his first son Chewbacca and stays up all night writing Ki Adi Mundi fan fiction. Fanboys are also different than fans because fans actually like the thing they claim to love. A fanboy will spend much more time cutting down the thing that their lives revolve around than praising it. This is because they tend to be horribly unhappy people with no social skills. Also, though most fanboys are male, there are an alarming number of women involved in these shenanigans, (I'm not going to use a gender neutral term like fan person because that sounds stupid). It's good news for male fanboys that some women also don't have lives. They were only ever going to find someone to marry them in a Ferengi themed wedding at some fanboy gathering. While there are many more groups we could add to this list, there just isn't enough time before reruns of Voltron are on. Here are the 15 most fanatical, twisted, and obnoxious types of fanboys.
