A human sub-phylum characterized by its apparent
affluence, worldliness, social
affectation and addiction to fashion. Males are characterized by a semi-slovenly appearance (including half-shaven faces), greasy hair, rib-hugging shirts, tight jeans
and loafers worn without socks. Women are easily distinguished by anorexia, over-bleached hair, gaudy jewelry, plastic
surgery (particularly breast-enlargement) and their
attachment to the male species. Both sexes
greet each other with “air kisses,” immediately speak of their last
trip (often Paris, Rome, Majorca), spend hours at “see-and-be-seen” restaurants and exhibit a world-weariness and pained sense of irony.
