Breaktime - The job stops here - Yoofspeak
Means: Someone who is too earnest andor not streetwise
Usage: "Jason is king neek in our class."
The combination of "nerd" and "geek" - not 50 per cent of each, but 200 per cent from both - has been around for a while but has undergone some subtle changes in the way the Yoof feels about the gaming-obsessed, blogging, speccy fellow pupil (possibly female but nearly always male) in question. Neeks aren't necessarily techies (although when I hear the word, Moss in The IT Crowd always comes to mind), but may just be the ones who crack unfunny jokes, wear cringeworthy clothes or who have actually read a book from cover to cover. Though by definition they lack street smarts and street cred, some neeks have made a sort of transition towards being - crazy as it seems - semi-cool. This Xbox Live clan member can sort your phone problems, answer the maths questions, update you on world politics ... and glasses used to be neeky but are seen more and more as a hipster fashion accessory.
