Fastuous by Uncommon Parlance

Do you know an arrogant son of a bitch? A supercilious snob who looks down his nose at everyone and everything? Then you know someone who’s worthy of the word Fastuous. Fastuous is the logophile’s latinate term for one who’s showy, disdainful and haughty. Etymology from Latin, fastus (haughtiness or pride).

“Impervious to the truth and immune to reality, Magnus felt that he was god’s gift to women and the world was his oyster. Actually, women put their fingers in their mouths and pretended to get sick behind his back, and he was universally considered a fastuous irritant.”
