Top Leek threads sometimes contain information and stories about leek, as well as jokes and puns where a word which is similar to leek either in written or spoken form is replaced by said word. For example, "Look at this!" becomes "Leek at this!" and "leak" becomes "leek". The meme has also been used to indicate laughter, similarly to lel and kek.
