And furthermore, Taleb is hypocritical. I mean, what is Taleb if not a “public intellectual”? What kind of “skin” does he have in the “game”.

That's exactly why I found the article funny. It's like a self- referential joke with some secret terminal condition that excludes him and his inner
circle.


On the other hand, as an irregular verb, it'd only exclude him when he's doing the writing:

I am a Pundit.
You are an Intellectual Yet Idiot.
He contributes to the Birdseed Press.
