1. (in Swift's Gulliver's Travels ) one of a race of brutes, having the form and all the vices of humans, who are subject to the Houyhnhnms.
2. ( lowercase ) an uncultivated or boorish person; lout; philistine; yokel.
3. ( lowercase ) a coarse or brutish person.

A case of mistaken identity;
His look identifying him as a yahoo.
But that bear is a philosopher:
Thoughts are all he has left to escape.
