Top definition
1. n. A very pretentious person who attempts to appear as an intellectual, but never fails to come across as a complete idiot. For instance, a whereforewhore might use the word "wherefore" in a precocious manner while trying to say "where" or, rather, "whence," despite the fact that "wherefore" actually means "why."
"I grew up in Hungary, wherefore I learned how to conform to the expectations of communism--"

"Dude, doesn't 'wherefore' mean 'why?'"

"Er..."

"You don't even sound smart, even though you're trying your hardest to do so. You are such a whereforewhore."
