11 Old New Ways To Call Someone An Idiot

Last Updated on: 10th November 2015, 05:46 pm

Sometimes I’m pretty sure the internet is reading my mind. Not NSA style, but rather in a good way that causes helpful things to appear not long after I have a thought. For instance, I was thinking yesterday about how with all of the master criminals stories we publish I could really use a few more words to take some of the pressure off of ones like moron, imbecile and idiot. Then, while looking for things to write about just now (possibly even more morons, imbeciles or idiots), I found this most useful list of 11 old-fashioned words for idiot.

If I can’t find a way to increase my use of words such as dunderwhelp and ninnyhammer, I might as well just quit right now.

    1. I’ve always enjoyed that one myself. Buffoonery. It’s just fun to say. I’m also a fan of tomfoolery, and am quite happy that I worked it into my Twitter bio. Not sure there’s a way to shoehorn buffoonery in there too, but if there is, consider it done.
