Cornelius: a name typically stereotyped or given definition by persons not named Cornelius; who have never met a Cornelius; or who are jealous they are not a Cornelius. A Cornelius and his corresponding lifestyle can be used to profound and lasting effect, as no one ever forgets meeting or sharing a memory with a Cornelius. A Cornelius’ magnetic, effervescent and fearless persona is generally a product of having survived a lifetime of name abuse at the hands of blandly named, high-fiving d-bags named Mike, Phil, Steve and/or Rob. Cornelius’ generally enjoy expectations because they never disappoint. Little can also be done to stop a Cornelius once he starts talking, drinking, smoking, fighting, yelling and schmoozing, and rest assured, if you’ve made to back to Cornelius’ home after having met one, you’ve already made up your mind to make him breakfast.
