Dick Wad was an American Journalist active in the 1940s, who was so unpopular with his colleagues his name became a general term of contempt.
In an ironic twist of fate, after WWII he went on an expedition into the Amazon. He was tortured and executed by tribesmen where his body was shrunk by witch doctors and subsequently used to mop up semen in fertility rites.
He doesn't deserve that Pulitzer, he's such a fucking dickwad.
A total tosser with a false sense of superiority, covering up the niggling knowledge in the back of his or her mind that his or her nation is just the bitch of the USA. Canadians are often smug and sarcastic in their vain attempts to be witty and sophisticated, though helplessly failing as they are all just liberal red necks.
Those Canadians not attempting to be urbane are crass and coarse, like other English speaking North Americans.
