A yuppie is an acronym for a "Young Urban Prossesional." These people are, plainly, cunts. To go more in depth, these people are commonly white, but there is a large black and asian group as well. They commonly shop at brand name stores, or stores made/named after white people: Prada, Gucci, Calvin Klein. They drive luxury vehicles like BMWs and Jaguars. Yuppies usually have extremely gay names like Spencer, Hunter, Chad, Link, Randolph, Tucker, etc. They thoroughly enjoy money and flaunting just how much many they have. Like the Nazis were responsible for the Holocaust, yuppies are responsible for gentrification. They usually move into ethnic, working-class neighborhoods, purchase these low cost houses, knock them down and build luxury condos. They move here for a taste of culture and "urbanity," but then they wonder where all the culture has gone when the blue collar natives were forced to move away due to rising property taxes and no where to live. Places faced by this plag include: SoHo, Hell's Kitchen, Charlestown (MA).
Chad (Yuppie 1)- Hey hunter, would you enjoy playing tennis down by where the street hockey courts used to be?

Hunter (Yuppie 2)- Yes! Then we should jog to the local pub in our Prada jumpsuits!

Link (Yuppie 3)- Then we can go to my condo and listen to Jazz!

Seamus (blue collar worker)- Go fuck yourselves.

Self absorbed pompous, selfish, spoiled and morally corrupt individuals between the ages of 25 and 40. Usually have a master’s degree and a hot wife or girlfriend. They love $7.00 cups of coffee, European cars, designer clothing, outrageously expensive homes and watching the stock market 24/7.

They’ll have one or two kids that tend to be little versions of their parents – spoiled, loud and demand attention. Their wives never work and spend most of their time at the mall, at the spa, at Starbucks with other yuppie wives or banging the pool boy because they’re husbands are too busy making more money.
Yuppie - Oh dear, I can't fit the baby seat in the Porsche.

Pronunciation (YUH-pee)
Synonyms: asshole, Bobo (burgeois bohemian), metrosexual, suburbanite,

Acronym for Young Urban Professional - typically a person who wants you to believe that they are superior to you due to their high-paying corporate job and social status. Activities include frequent purchases of expensive fuel-INefficient vehicles, extravagant clothing and jewelry, and anything that "elevates" them to a higher social standing.

Behavioral traits include intense arrogance, unhealthy preoccupation/obsession with the safety of their spawn, meeting with personal trainers, immeasurable selfishness, and constant obliviousness to anyone who does not have the same or greater "social status". Free thought is not allowed as it disrupts the balance of their world.

Habitat is restricted to excessively large, poorly-built houses (McMansions) which are frequently gated in to form a yuppie compound, typically called a subdivision or gated community. The compound is governed by a small group of fascists operating under the moniker of a neighborhood association. The compound is erected to provide the ILLUSION of a safe and secure environment for the yuppies to raise their spawn.

Yuppie religion is restricted to the Cult of the Dollar.
The yuppie is the scourge of the free-thinking world.

A pretentious and selfish professional person who is so arrogant, he blows a trumpet fanfare every time he locks or unlocks his car, to show you how great he is.
Yuppie (locking Lexus): BEEP! BEEP!

Me: Hey! Lock your car like a MAN, not like a yuppie!

A word derived from the root YUP standing for "Young urban professional". A wealthy person who makes sure that every other person is informed of that fact.

Shops at hoity toity stores us commonfolk probably never heard of. Buys coffee at Starbucks even though they own a $500 fancy shmancy coffee maker at home.

2. In a family setting:
