New cynical word (in this case a Chinese word) will be probably added to the Oxford English Dictionary: tuhao. “… tuhao originated in Chinese rural areas … to refer to the  ’rich who throw their weight around’ …The word is now used mainly by the online community to describe ‘those with money who have no class’…” (here; also go here). Good word. I’m going to start using it even before its inclusion in the big book.
