Big, Stupid Doodoo-Head

Go To

"You can't kick me because your brain is stupid!"
Death, Adventure Time, "Death in Bloom"

There are Ad Hominem insults. There are Lame Comebacks. And then there are these — insults so trite and meaningless that one may as well have called the other person a "Big Stupid Doodoo Head". Young children will resort to using these because they either don't know any better, or have run out of things to say. When an adult uses these, however, it's a good sign that they either don't have any real substance to back up their argument or they are quite childish themselves.

Other variants include "butthead", "snotbrain", "turdwipe" or - if the insulter is really desperate - borderline politically incorrect namecalling ("gay", etc.).

Sometimes Played for Laughs when it induces Felony Misdemeanor. Often involves Buffy Speak. The Bratty Half-Pint and the Manchild are fond of this.

See also No, You, really the only appropriate comeback to such an insult. Also see Badbutt and Gosh Dang It to Heck!, with which this can overlap. Flowery Insults are on the opposite end of the spectrum. Compare and contrast Curse of The Ancients, which is about insults (and curses in general) used by old people, putting it on the opposite end of the age spectrum.

  • In Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, Nia once describes someone as a "pissing-off person". Then again, most of Nia's dialogue is exceedingly polite, so it fits.

  • Nagasarete Airantou: Swordswoman Yoshidzu Katana and carpenter Abeno Kanna are rivals that hate each other from a few hundred years ago.

  • In Turning Red, Miriam calls Tyler a "butthead".

    Films — Live-Action 
  • In the Back to the Future films, the go-to insult of the Barbaric Bully Big Bad Biff is the supremely juvenile "butthead", even in the case of his future self as an old man.

    Ryan: Mr. Booger Lips! Ca-ca mouth!
  • Same with Frank Drebin in The Naked Gun. Leslie Nielsen's dry, dramatic delivery made these sort of insults especially funny, it turns out.
    Drebin: Oh, it's alright, I'm sure that we can handle this situation maturely, just like the responsible adults that we are. Isn't that right, Mr. Poopy-Pants?
  • Annie in Misery (book as well as film) typically uses insults of this nature. It makes her that more menacing in the moments when she doesn't and actually swears instead.

  • In Hook, Rufio falls prey to the "running out of things to say" variation when, after a long, volleying insult contest with Peter Pan, he loses his composure and resorts to "You man! You stupid, stupid MAN!" (Especially pathetic because his previous insults had also been borderline examples and only slightly creative, such as "scab-picked bandage" and "camel-cake.")

  • In Rags, Lloyd panics when his father catches him talking to Charlie and needs to justify the broken glasses on the floor (which Lloyd himself broke). He puts on a faux-Jerkass act and calls Charlie a "Gruntmuffin", an insult so lame that Charlie doesn't even know what it means and thus can't be offended by it. It's implied Lloyd either went with the first thing he could think of or used something nonsensical to not actually hurt Charlie's feelings, and fits with his slow-witted but kind-hearted personality.
  • Stuart Smalley in Stuart Saves His Family makes soft insults at Roz. The worst, which he acts was a Cluster F-Bomb, was calling her a "vagina".
  • Happens at the Twisted Balloon in Shakes the Clown, when Shakes and Binky get into an argument and one of Binky's two Mooks (both of whom are very childish, almost coming across as a clown version of Beavis And Butthead) poorly backs up his boss with "Well, the only show you could ever star in...would be a show called the...Not-Funny...Diarrhea Club...Fart-Face! (Also counts as Gosh Dang It to Heck!, since this is a world where people say ass and fuck on a regular basis.)
  • A friendly version is heard in the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990): while fixing a truck, Donatello and Casey Jones engage in a game involving the swapping of insults, going through the entire alphabet. (They end up on "Gak-Face" and "Hose-Brain.")
  • Subverted with Eliot calling his older brother "penis breath" in E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial. While it does sound like something a kid his age would use as an insult, he's really calling Michael a cocksucker.
  • In Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy, after Ron openly says "Fuck you, San Diego" due to his cue cards being tampered with a News Staff tearfully calls him "Poop Mouth" because of the "poop out of his mouth" before running off declaring how he now hates Ron.

  • Survivor Dogs:
    • In the first book, Lucky tries to distract the Fierce Dogs from his friends by insulting them. His two attempts are "Hey, stupid!" and "Mad dogs, sad dogs, stupid crazy bad dogs!" This doesn't work, and they only go after him after he starts insulting their mothers.

  • Tales of Dunk and Egg: Bryden Rivers dubs Lord Butterwell "Lord Butterbutt", an unusually juvenile move for such a typically smooth operator as he. Note that this is also after he's told Butterwell he's going to have his castle torn down for conspiracy to commit treason.

  • On Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Jeffords — who is on an ill-advised diet — lambasts Gina and Amy, who initially joined him only to give in to their cravings for food by yelling at them for being "Team Eating Food". In his defence, he's too hungry to come up with a better burn.

  • Done in the Community episode "Geography of Global Conflict", when Annie has a complete breakdown at the end of her "Model UN-off" when it looks like her rival Annie Kim is going to beat her. Lampshaded by Jeff.
    Annie: I want to win! And suck! You're a stupid, ugly poop-face and I'm better than you!
    Jeff: Annie, stop! You're acting like a little schoolgirl! And not in a hot way!
    (the audience gasps)

    (Jeff abruptly leaves)

    Jo: [gives her a blank look then turns to the other girls] You see that? And that's the best she can do.

In one episode, after watching Will impress a Princeton representative with his streetwise antics, Carlton attempts to do the same and the official believes him to be insane and rejects his Princeton application. In desperation, he makes a death threat and gets suspended for it, and lands himself in hot water at home. When Will works his usual charm to try to cheer him up, Carlton ain't having it:
    Carlton: Get away from me! This is all your fault! You big poopy! You get all the attention, all the girls, everything goes your way, why?!
    Will: Because I don't say things like "big poopy"?
  • In an episode of Happy Endings, Jane and Max are fighting over a sweater which both claim to be theirs.

  • One episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit had a grown woman with dissociative identity disorder calling her lawyer "dumbo" and "butthead".
  • Mystery Science Theater 3000:
    • Bobo tends to insult people this way. Take, for example, this moment from Show 813 - Jack Frost:

    Harry: Yes, it does. If you put shit in your pocket.
  • She-Hulk: Attorney at Law: Jen Walters and Bruce Banner start fighting over his attempts to help her get used to the fact that she's now a Hulk too. Being cousins, their fight is less of a superhero battle and more childish insults and pushing each other around.

    • And then there's Guybrush's often used insult "You big old bed-wetting doody head."
  • Portal: GLaDOS is a super-intelligent AI who intones in Robo Speak, so when she lapses into playground insults it is equally jarring and hilarious.

    [In a mocking tone] HeLlOoOoOo!

    Ryo: Absolute karate. That's Kyokugen. And don't you forget it, dweebenheimer!

    Kotobuki: "Stupidheads"? What are you, twelve?
  • Borderlands 2:
  • There's a moment in Mass Effect where Shepard can refer to a hanar preacher as a "big stupid jellyfish."

    Chuko: Oh yeah? You stuck up, pin-headed, brainless fart knocker!!
  • In Undertale, Sans has some Trust Passwords set up in case he needs to verify a time-traveler, which he'll tell the player character if, with zero kills, you reset after hearing his spiel and replay it.
