Happy Thursday!

Nothing witty to lead into the subject at hand, because I'm itching to play me some Spore, woo!

Today's word is...

Philosophunculist - [phil-o-so-phun-cu-list; pron: fill-oh-soh-FUN-kyoo-list]

One who pretends to know more than they do to impress others.

Usage:
While at work today, one of my colleagues had a few questions about a new system we're using - and instead of asking me, she chose to ask one of our resident philosophunculists, thereby wasting not only time waiting for him to help, but giving wrong information provided by someone that has no clue what they're talking about!

Of course, as knowledgeable as I am, I am certainly no philosophunculist! I've no idea what you'd call this word - adjective? Verbs, nouns and adjectives always confuse me!
