Do you feel like you’re a profound visionary? Do you roll your eyes at the “cute” remarks from your simp-minded friends? Do you watch French New Wave porn? If you said “yes” to any one of these questions, you might be a suffering from what’s called “Being A Pretentious, Condescending Asshole.”
But it’s okay, you’re not alone. One in every ten Americans is a pretentious, condescending asshole, including many acclaimed dignitaries of film.
