S.I.P. (Rhymes with: Yes, I pee.) noun — an acronym for Self-Important Person

She was parading around like Yugoslavian royalty; I felt like slapping an S.I.P. badge on her.
Etymology: The acronym comes from V.I.P., Very Important Person, and is used to describe a sense of entitlement and self-aggrandizing that, while as old as human history, has hit hysterical levels with the onset of selfies and social networking. Just remember: If you have to blow your own horn, it is probably a tin one.
