You know, the term anorak had me puzzled for awhile because I know it as a winter coat... so I was mildly amused by his hopeful insult:


Yes Marcus. But as an insult it refers to the type of person who wears an anorak. Train and plane spotters fort example. Anoraks usually have lots of pockets to keep notebook, maps, binoculars, etc.


Anorak (slang)

From Wikipedia,

This article is about the British slang. For the article of clothing, see Parka.


In British slang an anorak /ˈ?nər?k/ is a person who has a very strong interest, perhaps obsessive, in niche subjects. This interest may be unacknowledged or not understood by the general public. The term is sometimes used synonymously with geek or nerd, the Japanese term otaku, albeit referring to different niches.

Yes, while 'geek' has gained a little coolness in recent years (thanks partly to The Big Bang Theory, etc), 'anorak' remains more of a put-down.

I've forgotten exactly what word he said, but Peter Green used a similar phrase in the '60s when he was on stage and discussing blokes who were too interested in what string guage, effects, amplifier, etc he was using.

That'll have been people like me!

I have seen several ad from him over the years. All of his Tokai's are from 1981. I have told him several times, they're not, he says thank you and doesn't change the ad.
