Is calling four of a kind as "two pair", acceptable?

No, because four of a kind is four of a kind, and two pair, is two pair. If you ever tell someone you have two pair before showing them the winning hand with four of a kind expect to be assaulted.

The reason I asked the original question, is because we have one player who thinks he is so cool to announce his winning hand of 4 of a kind as 2 pairs.

I told him if he elected to call it as 2 pairs, then my 3 of a kind beat him.

Needless to say, I was derided.

Four of a kind is called four of a kind and two pairs are two pairs. Your friend needs educating, although in a Heath Robinson way he is technically correct in English, but not in poker

Not a square - it is new - Malevich's pentagram

No, because you have the strength of each combination and two pair is lower than four of a kind

Is this acceptable, well I guess if his intention was to get under your skin and shake you up. Then it sounds as if it was a success. But really not acceptable

There isn´t any reason to do that! Your friend probably doesn´t understand anything about the game, or is doing this to mock you.

This has been going on for decades,,, most of y'all probably weren't born when I heard it for the first time,,, have to agree it's as bad as slow-rolling.

Is this not just a friendly home game? Lighten up dude, or quit inviting him. The
cards speak for themselves.

That's almost as bad as trying to push for 3 pair in a 7 card stud game.

This is funny, must be a fun home game. Any casino that I have played in that joke would not even work once. He probably be made fun of every time he sat down.

If they want to be cute and call quads '2 pairs', they can.

However, if you have a showdown hand, make sure they show their hand instead of you just taking their word for it.

If you believe and fold without seeing a hand (when they need to show), then that's on you.
