When Yankee Doodle went to town
a-riding on a pony, he was being a
poser. The British wrote the song
‘Yankee Doodle’ to ridicule Americans’
lack of class. The term 'macaroni’
described those sophisticated, worldly,
and upper-class people with a stylish
sense of fashion, so when that Yankee
simpleton (doodle) put some random
feather on his hat and called it classy
(macaroni), it was just a failed attempt
at trying to look cool. Source
