A Word A Day Keeps Ignorance at Bay!!! – Nincompoop
- noun. An ignorant or stupid person.
- This word originated in the late 17th century: perhaps from the given name Nicholas or from Nicodemus (by association with the Pharisee of this name, and his naive questioning of Christ; compare with French nicodème meaning ‘simpleton’)
- genius, intellectual
- It gets very difficult to keep your cool when you have to work with a bunch of nincompoops.
- I really need to find out the nincompoop who meddled with the reports.
