Flash Mobster

Life is hard unless you can fake it.

Flash Mobster: An expat who delights in showing off wealth, especially if living in a developing nation. Wealth of course is relative, and may amount to a wardrobe bought at Target, plus two pots, two pans, and a set of mail-order silverware. This sort of person is often a banana republican as well. Bet you couldn't guess.

Flash Mobster: An inflatable buffoon, frequently deflated at knife-point while being relieved of baubles, fancy toys, shiny jewelry, and possibly all clothing as well.

Flash Mobster: Someone who seeks respect the only way possible - by being tacky. This is a person who believes that anything gold-colored and glittery instantly says "class". And it does, but not the class intended.
