Geek Out! Share Your Favorite Fictional Geeks

This Saturday happens to be Hobbit Day, which is the birthday of the hobbits Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. In case you missed the memo, Bilbo and Frodo are two fictional characters from J. R. R. Tolkien's "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Hobbit," and subsequently characters in the movie series staring Orlando Bloom and Elijah Wood.

The series happens to have an extremely high mark on the geek meter and a very special place in my heart. I wouldn't say either character can really hold the "geek" torch, but the impending day of celebration got me thinking about who I admire most in the geek world.

I've been obsessed with unmistakably geeky Bret and Jemaine from HBO's Flight of The Conchords recently. In last season's "The Actor" episode the two actually dressed up as hobbits when shooting a video for their song "Frodo, Don't Wear The Ring." We're probably lucky Bret eats "Lasagna for one" instead of real hobbit food like Lembas Bread. That might lead to geek overload.

Who is your favorite fictional geek?

Share your favorite fictional geek with us by finding a picture of him or her on the web and bookmarking it on TeamSugar. Make sure to tag your finds with "my favorite geek" and tell me why you love them so.

Dwight from The Office. Not in a "I think he's sexy" way, but in a "he's just the most hilarious, dorkiest guy ever, and I love him" way. :P

happy hobbit day Geek! :) of the hobbits, who do you think is the geekiest? I'd say Samwise! i love when (in the movie, of course) he made Frodo fall to the ground just to save his little box of spices in case they might have roast chicken some time! :D

Bones, Hodgins, and Zack from Bones. They're brilliant and hilarious. Most of my family acts like them. In fact, I think Zach actually is my cousin.
