n. Mer'-suh-nerry, a contemporary American that lives out of total self-interest regardless of his/her impact on others. Totally driven to self-aggrandizement, but shallow, stupid, semi-literate and generally not interested in anything outside of shopping or self-promotion. Will eventually self-destruct by disappearing up own asshole.
Often found reading Us ("Pus") Magazine to find out what other degenerate fools do with their empty, pathetic lives.
Lacks sense of morality and decency. Essentially for sale to the highest bidder, regardless of consequences or prior purchased allegiances.
Will annihilate those perceived to threaten a mercenary's existence. Subtle undercurrent of destructive behaviour.

I was feeling like a mercenary so I hung around Worth Avenue all day carrying a snobby shopping bag.
