DON'T BE A MORON, TEST YOUR KNOWLEDGE OF THE "DUDE" LEXICON
(examples of each are included in this version):
Dude is one of the most versatile words in any language. John Swansberg of Slate identifies "at least six distinct usages" of dude:
- The admonitory dude: the dude deployed when your buddy won't stop humming "Umbrella" on a long car ride. As in, "Dude, enough."
- The interrogative dude: useful for ascertaining whether you've dropped a call. "Dude? Are you still there?"
- The deflated dude: the dude of bad news. "Dude. Tom Brady's wearing a boot."
- The exclamatory dude: the dude of good news. "Dude! Tom Brady is no longer wearing a boot!"
- The sotto voce (under one’s breath) dude: for classified briefings. "Dude: Here comes that tall drink of water from accounting."
- The blissed-out dude: more accurately rendered as duhuhude. The dude issued upon rediscovering a long-lost (Grateful) Dead tape.
Our in-house Dude experts have identified several more usages:
- The “What were you thinking?” dude: When you are shocked by the stupidity of your best friend.
- The scary dude: What Shaggy might say to Scooby-Doo just before saying “RUN!” when the scary pumpkin headed ghost is fast approaching, duuuuuude!
- The “What’s up with that?” dude: When someone walks right into you on the street in New York.
- The “I’m Sorry” dude: dude (I’m sorry).
“Dude” is very famous as well, appearing in Bud Light commercials, headlining major motion pictures like “Dude, Where’s my car,” helping launch the career of Keanu Reeves and the other guy in Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure and appearing as the title character “The Dude” in The Big Lebowski.
