pointy-head(redirected from pointy heads)
slang A pretentious, self-important intellectual. It's all well and good for these pointy-heads to theorize about the roots and causes of our poverty, but all those words don't do a damned thing to put food on our plate! The last thing we need is another pointy-head with a fancy degree coming in here and telling us how to do our jobs.
n. a studious thinker; an intellectual. (see also conehead.) The pointy-heads seem to be living in a world of their own.
