noun. 1) The primal essence of Humphrey Bogart. 2) Your annoying habit of bogarting the joint, my patience, or the farmer's daughter.

Real citation: “The smoky B&W cinematography, the moody score, the hard-boiled dialogue, the femme fatale ("What else is there that I can buy you with?"), the quirky supporting performances by Peter Lorre and Sydney Greenstreet (who both turned out the next year with Bogie in 'Casablanca', probably not coincidentally) and the very Bogartitude of it all are simply intoxicating.”
(Montreal Film Journal,

Made-up citation: "After eight years of Commander Cuckoo-Bananas, his blatant, boneheaded bogartitude of the Presidency is almost over!"
