I am not sure, but I think Hulk Hoogan invented the word dude. He was a pro wrestler during the eighties… is anybody sure of it?
I did. I invented it.
I looked it up and I can’t find it.
I first heard it on TMNT cartoons 🥷🏿🐢
Wikipedia has some info:
lol who would have thought this was the guy who invented it
i like the way this guy says dude, louisianans are cool
This dude right here:
I thought cowboys did, about city men.
The term “dude” may also have derived from the 18th-century word “doodle” , as in “Yankee Doodle Dandy”. In the popular press of the 1880s and 1890s, “dude” was a new word for “dandy”—an “extremely well-dressed male”, a man who paid particular importance to his appearance.
One very cool person.
“Who invented the word Dude?”
Oh, just some dude. Not sure which dude. Just a dude. Possibly this certain dude?
Eventually the English language will evolve the word dude into the word droog in our future dystopian society.
The Dude of all dudes.
