Ponce

Ponce is a word I love to use, and maybe its due to the fact that I've always been an anglophile. BBC programming has always worked its way into my television or computer, and if your familiar with Zero Punctuation (which you very well should be), then you've no doubt heard this word used in a derogatory fashion during conversations. When calling someone a "ponce", you're making the claim that they are faking having class or intelligence, essentially making them a poser. Or "poeuseuer" if your fancy. Yahtzee himself once called the main character from SEGA's Alpha Protocol the, "ponciest ponce to ever ponce past a poncing parlor". Brilliant.
