Are You An Egghead?


According to Wikipedia, the term egghead is slang for (or an insult directed at) people thought so smart as to be ‘out-of-touch with ordinary people … on account of their intellectual interests.’ At least that’s how the insult evolved; initially it seemed to be a reference to the balding head of Adlai Stevenson.

“Man does not live by words alone, despite the fact that sometimes he has to eat them.” —  Adlai Stevenson
