this word is often misused and has negative connotations. in reality, popular (when referring to a person) is when someone is very well liked and has a lot of genuine friends, most likely because they are a nice/friendly person. However, through the media and highschools around america, "popular" has grown to describe a certain group of people. these people, like punks, nerds, etc. have their own social code, which usually (but not always) includes expensive items/services, sports teams, and cheerleading. These people are not necessarily popular, yes some of them genuinly are well liked and have lots of friends becuase they too (gasp) are nice people. but some of them unfortunately are under the false impression that they are better than everyone else because of their possesions and friends/boyfriends/girlfriends, (who to these people also count as possesions).

Someone who thinks they rule the world at their school but then grow up and realize the REAL world doesn't care if your daddy has lots of money and your mom blew the principal to keep your grades up....
snotty, usually well off brats that end up living in their parents basement when they drop out of college.
oh yeah...ha ha.

Everyone who thinks that popular people are rich sluts who sleeps around must've said that because they're drowing in jealousy. Honestly, you guys are the real bitches here for stereotyping us after watching a couple lameass shows that displays 'popular' people as heartless individuals. Get out more and don't judge us when all you do is just stare at us from afar.

Yeah the majority of us wear fashionable clothes, so what? We can afford it and it's pretty so we buy it. You don't have to crap all over us because we choose to have a certain style. If you still want to then go ahead, just do it face to face instead of cowering behind a barrier. Because from what I've seen, most of the insults are found online instead of actually said to us.

You think we're bitches? Well I'm sorry you feel that way. I'm also sorry that you guys are so hypocritical. But verbally attempting to bash us for judging the unpopular while you freely judge us isn't very sweet of you either.

Just to clear things up, we aren't stupid because we're popular. Many of us get on the honour roll and do care about our grades. There are a few popular people who get lower than average grades but then again, so do unpopular people.

Many of us are attractive and if you think that it's conceited for us to acknowledge that, then you're a bit messed up in the head. We're pretty and keep up with our appearance. Apparently we're sluts for doing that as well. Frankly I don't see what's wrong with improving or keeping up with something that's boastworthy. It's like if you get into a smart program, you'd study more because you get a sense of pride knowing that you have something that not everyone has.

When guys flirt with us, we flirt back (unless we're taken). If we want something we'd do what we could to achieve it. Just like what you people would. We wouldn't bully people or attack people for no reason. But if someone majorly ticks us the wrong way, it's only natural to fight back.

I don't understand why some of you have a problem as to why we stick to the same group. And that if we don't hang with the less popular we're bitches. Wake up people. You have your own 'groups' and sit at your own table, I suppose that makes you a bitch too then?

But even despite all this, I find it amusing how y'all try to attack us from every angle. If you spot a flaw you'd expose it. It's a shame we ain't ever going down any time soon.
popular people are beautiful, fun, well educated, etc.

People who WILL rule the world, and WILL become idol figures of society. Why? Because even if they are unskilled dolts, they have something you pimply-faced squibs don't have, charisma.

Charisma is the magnetic attraction that makes populars, popular. You can flaunt your overpriced cheesy college education however you like, but once the popular enters the scene, his sheer dead-sexiness will acquire him that management job, cutting the floor beneath your pasty ass. They are natural leaders, you are not.

If you can't become a popular based on your looks and desirable personality, there's always a faster and more effective way, being a bully. They'll think twice before they cross your line-of-sight again.
Hot-legged Office Secretary: Well Mr. Wong, everything seems to be in order here.

Socially Inept Geek: And may I inquire you to have a personal appointment with me at the annual Californian Astrocon Cosplay Convention? Wear spandex *wink* *wink*

Hot-legged Office Secretary: Security!

20 Minutes Later, candidate for interview #34 shows up

Ex-high school popular: Duhm, do you have an application?

Hot-legged Office Secretary: How about I invite you into a steamy 30 minute session of casual office sex?

Ex-high school popular: Life has never been so easy! Out of the way nerd!

He kicks the unconcious Socially Inept Geek aside, pushes all of the office items off the desk and closes the door
