1. A persistent, harmless, fan.
A person who is famous within an organisation or department because they keep popping up, 'helping', suggesting ideas and generally showing an unhealthy interest in whatever the organisation does. This person has no official connection with the company and yet seems to be more loyal to it than its own employees.

Employee 2: Great. He can take my place.
Employee 1: Ha! Very funny.
