The dictionary and thesaurus would seem to disagree with you.

Besides, if you're going to be esoteric and vainglorious, you might as well do it with some panache, right?

Flamboyant tends to be superlative and pretentious tends to prejorative.

yeah, see you think about those words and while yeahduff is definitely pretentious, i don't really see him as being ostentatious and he's certainly not flamboyant. They may have a similar core meaning but there are nuances that differentiate them.

If I'm gonna be a flamboyant loser anyway, I definitely want to be the kind that noone understands, squiriferous oporopolist, or else jussulent but scelidate anyway.

Save the cheerleader, save a word?

I don't need to use obsolescent vocabulary, nobody understands what I say anyway.
