an American used to denote pompous, rich, stuffy, vainglorious, snobby aristocracy types who think they rule the world. Even if that is so, there are millions of planets orbiting millions of stars in this galaxy and in millions of galaxies, so the muckety-mucks can put that in their pipes and smoke it.
when I was eating at an Olive Garden in downtown Toronto, I asked this righteous babe of a waitress where the reputed Eaton mall was and what kind of people shop there. I had to define "muckety-mucks" to her since that term isn't used in Canada. I explained "fatcat", and had to define that word for her, too. She explained to me where I needed to go and remarked about my American vocabulary. We talked some more, then I payed the bill and laid down the tip and I was on my way.
taken from Merriam-Webster Dictionary, evolved from Chinook Indians. They first used a form of muckety-muck meaning an arrogant, self-important person, "high-muck-a-muck."
Man, those frattastic muckety-mucks really harsh my mellow. Their parties are so bernie. I'm swayze.
An acronym for Big Hairy Audacious Goal.

The surname of a large extended virtual family which acts as the "gods" (i.e. administrators) of the metaverse known as Second Life. Any avatar with the last name "Linden" is therefore part of an elite upper echelon of Second Life muckety-mucks responsible for new policies/protocols/programming but never responsible for such trivialities as lag, sim crashes, missing inventory items, or gridwide outages.
The hoi polloi are thereby cautioned: if you spot a Linden in-world, approach at your own risk; griefing a Linden may be the ultimate in hilarity but it will likely herald the end of your Second Life.
*Disclaimer: the most friendly of all the Linden family is likely Torley Linden, as witnessed by his uberchirpy trademark "Friendly Greetings" salutation and his many helpful YouTube tutorials.
Q: Why do I keep crashing so much?
A: Because the Lindens hate you, n00b.
Some well known Linden family members:
Philip Linden (founder of Second Life), Torley Linden, Kate Linden, Pathfinder Linden,Teagan Linden
The pathologic incubator that is modern corporate America.
And that's not all folks... Just a few quick months in Corporatia completely dessicated my soul!
