Acronym for Young Urban Professional. Group whose culture blends the hippie/counterculture values of the 60s and the materialistic monetary-based values of the 80s. Usually congregate in Starbuck's, Whole Foods, Trader Joe's, and a wide variety of vintage clothing boutiques. Includes both moderate Liberals (Majority of yuppies), and moderate Conservatives (smaller group of yuppies), although both the far left and the far right enjoy dissing them.
far left dude: I hate these damn yuppies! They claim to be "artists" and "bohemians", yet their materialistic pursuits embody the very antithesis of the counterculture, and price real "artists" like me out of the neighborhoods they move to!

far right dude: I hate these damn yuppies. I can't stand they flaunt their metrosexuality with their designer labels, lattes, luxury cars, and globally conscious health food stores. It's european-wannabe wimps like them that corrupt America!

Term coined in the 80s, describing a certain demographic of Young Updwardly-mobile Professional as found in cities and fast-paced business environments.

Yuppies differ from your bog-standard "business man" due to their relatively young age, their blatant arrogance, bloody-minded ambition and the fact that they care more about their work and making money, than the fact that everyone thinks they are a complete twat.

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 yuppie is any man or woman who believes they are entitled to high end paying jobs with little or no experience. This is the “everyone gets a trophy generation”, which was created by the “latch key kid generation.” Parents of yuppies, while trying to eat their emotions of loneliness, successfully over compensation their children’s accomplishments and discounting their failures. Mainly because their mommy and daddy was smoking crack in the parking lot of a WHAM concert in the 80’s,while they sat on the living room floor alone eating Trix in a cup while watching the Smurfs.

Although Yuppies appear to have the latest in “trendy retro clothes”, in reality, they dress this way because they have no job and ransacked their grandma’s attic, grabbing what moth eating clothes they could. Then return to their unfurnished apartment, to which they will refer to as a “studio” that has a small eco footprint, which supports a generation that doesn’t need “physical things.” Another physical trait of the yuppie, is the more recent Pompadour Fade, or otherwise known as the grease comb over. Although trendy, it is actually by design, a health measure. By smearing grease in their hair, pulling to one side and shaving the side of their head, this allows for ease when checking for mites or lice, due to the fact that they are unable to have running water in their “studio”. This “Fad” will allow the perfect disguise to hide their true balding within the next 5-10 years.
Ben: Tom, you should minimize your green foot print and down size your home that you worked so hard for.
Tom: Ben, eat shit yuppie, get a job, wash your hair and tell your parents to get counseling.

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.
