Write Anglo-Saxon Protestants.
Preppies are invariably WASPs, but not all WASPs are preppies.
1) The other dumbass who wrote a definition for this should learn how to spell. (its P-R-O-T-E-S-T-A-N-T)

2) It's difficult to find any type of person other than WASPs in Nantucket.

"White Anglo Saxon Protestant". The most common place for W.A.S.P.s would be New England. Smart, witty, posh, classy, old money, top of the social chain, good looking, country club members, nonchalant, old school, boat owners, capable of outdoing anyone on anything, original prep (none of this new popped-collar, tacky pearls, and ribbons), boat shoes, Polo's, Lacoste, scandelous in private, small stature.
There are two types of people who go to country clubs:
People who let you know that they attend a country club, and those who you had no idea because they don't go about telling everyone. We call those people w.a.s.p.s.

"Wow, you should be in a porno."
"No, I can't do that."
"Why not?"
"Because I'm a w.a.s.p."

Historically an acronym for White Anglo-Saxon Protestant, but used traditionally and frequently to mean White Affluent Schooled Person(s), regardless of a precise national origin or specific christian denomination or religion. Especially relevant in references to persons or families with old money ties in positions of certain power, notably those residing in certain pockets on the East Coast.

Commonly used with an inherently negative connotation by non-WASPS.

The term is often associated and used interchangeably in reference to the perceived subculture of "Prep", "Preppy", "Prepdom" because of historical and unmistakable ties.

The acronym "wasp" has not become commercialized as greatly as the perceived "prep" lifestyle through clothing companies which try to sell this lifestyle to the aspiring common populace who strive to overcome the reality of exclusivity.

did you see those people? Such wasps!

"WASP" has not been attempted to be commercialized as greatly as the perceived "PREP" lifestyle by clothing companies which attempt to sell a lifestyle through mere clothing to the aspiring common populace for monetary gain as opposed to accurately representing the reality of exclusivity.

An awesome 80's hair/heavy metal band from L.A., influenced
and musically similar to hard rock/heavy metal band KISS, due to the similar influences of W.A.S.P.'s frontman and later guitarist Blackie Lawless and KISS's lead guitarist and backup vocalist Paul 'Ace' Frehley. Some of the best known songs by W.A.S.P. : I wanna be somebody, my wicked heart, wild child, L.O.V.E. Machine.
W.A.S.P. was speculated to stand for "We Are Satan's People", but was denied by the band.
Band itself stated that it's just W.A.S.P. and it doesn't mean anything.
Some stupid priest who had nothing better to than shit-talk about yet another metal band and accuse them for satanism, put W.A.S.P. under a spotlight because of their unusual stage performance and makeup.
Church always accuses metal bands (WASP, KISS) who are named in an acronym, or have songs whose titles consit either of: heaven, hell, devil, bible, etc, but avoid to notice what the illiterate hip-hop bastards ("artists")produce and what kind of message do they send to people with their "music".

A super-annoying insect mothereffer that is out all summer, unless there is heavy wind. These things are the dicks of the sky and if you see one get the hell out of there. Their sting feels like having a hot pin dipped in bleach and putting salt on the wound.
Did I mention they can sting more than once?
1. Ah crap, a wasp is nesting in my garage and it's buddies stung my arms 2 times each. I am in so much pain.
