The word is still "poseur", Amos. It's a French word. The fact that a few dumbass American youths have such lazy brains that they can't handle spelling or pronouncing any word they haven't already seen in Batman or Popular Mechanics does not change the fact that the real word is "poseur".

A "poser" is a question that is very difficult to answer. She was not talking about a poser, she was talking about a poseur. Note that the accent in poseur is on the 2nd syllable, while the accent in poser is on the first.

Once again, sir, you are being a cantakerous, obstreperous, deliberately obstructionist, and downright unreasonable diddlyboob of the worst sort. I shall have to reduce your official intellectual rating by one star...from a "9" to an "8". Hang your head in shame!

Janie - It's true we don't have too many hillbillies...but we have thousands and thousands of hosers in Canada, and they are just as good. Or bad. Depending on how you look at it. And then we've got Newfies and Squid-Jiggers too. If them "byes" lived in Tennessee or West Virginia, they would BE hillbillies of the first water, I can assure you. Newfies make "Screech" too and it's even stronger than moonshine.
