Someone who tries to sound smart by defining "pseudo-intellectual," while displaying a lack of proper grammar, sentence structure, or correct spelling. Said person is often found to have a fairly large amount of unwarranted arrogance. You are a chode.
Every single person who tried to define "pseudo-intellectual" just made themself out to be quite farcical. Their parents must be siblings.
