The first class of posers are those that consider themselves skateboarders. They will often be wearing $30 skateboard tees and $70 tight jeans. Despite the fact that they spend more on clothes than Hulk Hogan spends on boas, they sometimes bash "The Man" for keeping them down and not allowing them to skateboard in front of them old folks home. The Skater posers often use this excuse for not actually skateboarding, or the fact that they can't get their sister's new jeans dirty.
Some quick tips for picking out a poser among the real thing will now be given. The most common and easiest clue that the "skater" is not true to his own guidelines of coolnessity is they prefer caring their board (graphics out) instead of riding it. Notice how the example above seems to be going downhill at a moderate rate, yet he is still caring his board. POSER IDENTIFIED.
For their downhill counterparts, snowboarders, the posers are usually the ones who sit in front of the jump/rail/barrel and wait for someone to "hit it". If someone actually tries to hit something, and fails, the posers are the first ones to criticize.
The pseudo-intellectuals, as they are often refered to as, are often the teachers and professors who have egos bigger and more explosive than Rosie O'Donnald. They often complain about how all of his/her students will never amount to much and complain about their surroundings. They also boast how they have I.Q.s over 170, yet usually don't realize that they are telling this to teenagers and college students instead of Stephen Hawking or the other guy, the one Hawking takes credit from about black holes. Usually these are the posers that most people learn to despise and learn from as they grow up and makes them into better people.
Not all pseudo-intellectuals are in teaching areas, sadly some start out an early age, such as when it is o.k. to be smart and still live at home. If you suspect you are in the neighboring area of a student P.I., it is best not to bring up anything scientific. If you do, they will pin you down and try their best to recite their Physics book, and of course, do badly at it.
Yea....I've already gone of these guys. An overall addition to that is they usually make the love sign instead of the rock sign with their hands. Thumbs in at a Ted Nugent concert, not out!
Of all the posers, the gay posers actually have a very good idea. Not saying that all people who say they are gay are posers, just that the ones that may fall under the following criteria are. I, like many non-ultra-conservative people, don't have any problem with gay people, just the posers. Giving the example above, you can fill in that blank with such things as: Bra shopping, bra testing, bra fitting, having a single bed sleep-over, and practice making out.
If they get away with those kind of things because they are gay, and always like doing that, they are possibly, but not likely, pretending to be gay to get closer to girls. If Puuda wasn't already a sexy ladies' man, I'd consider this a possible option.
With the given information, you too can identify a poser.
Warning: Even with the most sophisticated Poser detecting skills, you may actually misidentify someone as a poser when they really aren't.
