Where does dickweed come from?

Dickweed , like a lot of truly “rad” slang, is a product of the 1980s. While calling someone a dick (“penis”) is an old insult, the addition of weed is newer. It may allude to pubic hair. It may just liken the person to useless, unwanted plants. It may just also be fun to say.

Evidence for dickweed in print comes in 1984, but it didn’t take long for dickweed to reach the mainstream. In the 1985 teen movie Weird Science, a young Bill Paxton drops a legendary dickweed. In the 1989 Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure , the titular Bill (Alex Winter) issues the classic line: “You killed Ted, you medieval dickweed!”

By the 1990s, chat rooms and forums became popular. Dickweed , a humorous term that’s less offensive than asshole, was ready for them, and early 1990s Usenet forums were deep in the dickwee d s .

TV in the 1990s had no shortage of dickweeds. The word is closely associated with Mystery Science Theater 3000 , where it was a favorite insult among the characters and the topic of a 1992 episode where they debate whether or not it’s a swear word. MTV apparently decided that it was, as Mike Judge mutated dickweed to dillweed for Beavis and Butthead for the channel.

The 1980s called, and they want this slang word back. This popular insult expresses maximum disdain with minimal blowback, all with a dash of comic effect.
