Who invented the word Dude

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 🥷🏿🐢

Off Google,

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. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: 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.
