WIGS are the new WAGS

1 Oct

For those of you who don’t know, a WAG is the tabloid term for a wife or girlfriend of a footballer, prime UK examples being Posh Spice, Coleen or Cheryl Cole. Even though they are normally quite chav-tastic, educationally challenged, talentless, perma-tanned, and their boyfriends constantly cheat on them (sometimes with grannies), people still want to be one! Yup, go figure.

But what I’ve come to realise recently is that the era of the WAG is sooo OVER. Come forth the WIG.

I know you are wondering what a WIG is, so I will tell you.

A WIG (according to me) is a Wife (or girlfriend ) of an Internet Geek.

Here are some prime examples of Internet Geeks (IGs):

Mark Zuckerberg (Founder of Facebook). Ok, so he’s not conventionally good looking, but check out his key stats. Age 25… net worth: $2billion+, according to Forbes. Not so ugly now hey!?

Chad Hurley (CoFounder of YouTube). God bless America.

Pete Cashmore (Editor in Chief of Mashable, one of the most influential blogs in the world). This born and bred sexy Scotsman has managed to make millions from his love of all things geek. Unfortunately for the UK, he has now relocated to the US. He was named by Huffington Post as one of the ” Top 10 Game Changers” in 2009. He’s rumoured to be worth over $4million.

Anyway, my point is… why are so many girls still chasing after their dream of becoming a WAG, when there is blatantly a new breed of superstar in our midst? A superstar that comes in the form of… the Internet Geek.

Really? I hear you ask… Ok let’s do some quick comparisons.


Geek= Yes
Footballer= No

Geek= Getting so much better…
Footballer= Getting so much worse…

Geek=  Yes  (Lots, and lots)
Footballer= Not in same league as geek (pardon the pun)

Geek= High. Chances are, if you get with an Internet Geek, you may be the only girl he’s ever kissed.
Footballer= Non-existent

Point proven.

Listen, behind every good man is a good woman. I’ve set up this blog to delve into the lives of Internet Geeks (IGs), and the women that make them the men that they are (or the women who wait for them to become the men that they are before they agree to that first date).  You’ll probably get a bit of start-up news, a bit of gossip, and a lot of conjecture. But whatever you get, I hope you find it entertaining.
