flid

Definition

Slang

  • noun a stupid person. The word was reported as being in use among schoolchildren by the sociolinguist peter Trudgill in his 1990 work Bad Language, but seems to have arisen in the 1970s. It may be an arbitrary coinage, an obscure dialect term or, alternatively, a conflation of ‘flip one’s lid’ or, some suggest, of ‘thalidomide (victim)’.
