a derogatory word used to describe working-class people, often mistaking pretentious shows of education for intelligence and wisdom, or assuming that ignorance and foolishness are symptoms of poverty
I met someone today who didn't know the difference between a desert fork and a soufflé fork. I say, these uneducated people will be the downfall of America.
Well I never! I overheard a vagrant African American uttering that the rich should be taxed more heavily despite the fact that John D. Rockefeller's "Some Random Reminiscences of Men and Events," which he probably has not even read, clearly states otherwise. How uneducated can a person be?
