A term used to negatively refer to the people who live in either Highland Park or University Park, Texas. These cities are located in the heart of Dallas as close as you can get to downtown without being in the ghetto. The people there usually follow these stereotypes: "The girls are beautiful, the boys are well-groomed and cocky. The women are nosy and annoying (especially if mothers), and the men are aggressive and self-affirming." Everyone has a lot of money, and no minorities live there. This is not the place for you if you are at all "different". There are cops everywhere. The most noticeable trait of a Parkie is being disconnected from the outide world, hence the term used to describe the cities themselves, "the Bubble". Despite all this, many of the people there are kind, good friends even, if you can get past the obvious. It is worth noting that this term is usually used by people who live outside the Bubble.
Matt and his friends are such Parkies, the first time they realized that Africa isn't exactly like America was when that Kony 2012 video came out.
