Don't Be Snooty!

funny word of the day: snooty

Definition from Merriam-Webster:

Pronunciation: \ˈsnü-tē\
Function: adjective
Inflected Form(s): snoot·i·er; snoot·i·est
Date: 1919
1 : looking down the nose : showing disdain 2 : characterized by snobbery
— snoot·i·ly \ˈsnü-tə-lē\ adverb
— snoot·i·ness \ˈsnü-tē-nəs\ noun

This word is often used to describe British people (and evidently also foxes who dress in hunting clothes).
