popinjay – a conceited, foppish, person
Classical Usage: In Part One Chapter 2 the Prince and Princess Shcherbatsky get into a little squabble about which of Kitty’s suitors is a better marriage match. Mom likes Vronsky, Dad likes Levin. He calls on his manly intuition (is that a thing, or do only women have it?) “We have eyes for these things, if women haven’t. I see one man who has serious intentions – that is Levin; and I see a conceeited popinjay who is only amusing himself.” I haven’t read all that far yet, but it seems to me that Pops has this guy’s number.
Classically Mad Usage: From now on I will always assume that the Pillsbury Doughboy’s first name is Jay.
