(BOO-GEE) short for bourgeois (french origin meaning snotty sefl-contented middle and upper middle class), anyone pretentious and trying too hard to be classy.

Includes all super-enlightened anarchists, Birkenstock-wearers, Abercrombie and Fitch addicts, and assholes who add random French phrases into their everyday conversation.
Example-

Frank:Hey man watcha doing later?

Walton III:Hmmm. Je ne sais pas. Peut-etre I will drink white wine out of a crystal glass embossed with my family crest and contemplate how lucky I am to have my secondary education. I will then watch an opera. In Italian.

Frank: Sonnnnnn. You're so fuckin' BOUGIE. Later.
