    In today's slang a wiseguy is a hoodlum or gangster or someone connected to the mafia. A wise man is just that, a wise man, someone who is knowledgeable.

    A wiseguy is someone or a made guy is always someone who is connected to the mafia. A wise man goes beyond someone who is knowledgeable. When people talk about a wise man they are talking about someone who has more then a passing knowledge of things. Someone who is wise is a person who that people come to find the answers to the deeper questions in life, the kind of information you cannot find in an encyclopedia. It would not matter how many degrees even if he or her had a PHD it would mean nothing. You could bump into this fellow in the street and you would not recognize him. A wise man is someone whose understanding of how things work and how people work would be just the begining to explain what a wise man is.
    I'd like to add 'wise azz' to your question.. I think this guy earned his way too, he shows up almost everywhere..


    (watch out now--don't go there... LOL )
    depends on which end of the gun your on!
    No
    A wise man knows when not to be a wise guy.
    I believe you just answered your own question.
