A Pointyhead is a person who is born in Hereford but has substantially less brain matter than your average human being, commonly being confused with a welsh farmer or sheep sh**er. However the two should not be confused due to the subtle differences i.e not being welsh, talking with a west country accent, being total boneheads.
The essential life problem for the traditional pointy-head is that, having such a head, he (and they are almost always a he) will pierce a hole in the hood of his anorak.
