Top definition
A satiric term for a man who displays certain characteristics of class and elegance, but chooses often to act rude and distasteful, often in front of large groups of people.

Most of these people are hairy beer-drinking slugs who sit and listen to bad hair metal and watch re-runs of Cheers all day.

The term was coined by the Minnesota rock band Silent Are The Dead, on their album "Guns, Guts, and Glory" and has become an important part of the mid-western lexicon ever since.
"Look at those drunk assholes over there, some cordial gentlemen they are."
