Death: You can't kick me because your brain is stupid!
Finn: Your brain is stupid!

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 don't have any real substance to back up their argument.

Sometimes Played for Laughs when it induces What Do You Mean It's Not Heinous? Often the final stage of a round of Volleying Insults.

Examples of Big Stupid Doodoo Head include:


Anime and Manga

  • In Gurren Lagann, Nia once describes someone as a "pissing-off person". Then again, most of Nia's dialogue is exceedingly polite, so it fits.
    • That, combined with her shaky and limited grasp of idioms, and that said insult was a response to the person facing her down, Adiane, telling her "You really know how to piss people off!"

Fan Works

Film - Animation

  • In Lilo and Stitch, Nani is almost hit by a car as she rushes back home and shouts at the driver, "Watch where you're going, stupidhead!" It comes back to bite her when said "stupidhead" turns out to be the social worker assigned to her. This is later used by Stitch against Gantu—as a sign of Character Development, no less, since such an insult is Lighter and Softer compared to his untranslated alien insults from the start of the movie that the Councilwoman finds so repulsive.

Film - Live Action

  • In Wrongfully Accused, the protagonist, Ryan Harrison, gets into a shouting match with a guard on a prison bus that ultimately ends with a series of these types of insults.

Ryan: How dare you 'how dare me' when I how dare you, you big pee-pee head!
Guard: You are the pee-pee head!
Ryan: Mr. Booger Lips! Ca-ca mouth!

  • Same with Leslie Nielsen as Frank Drebin in The Naked Gun. Nielsen's dry, dramatic delivery made these sort of insults especially funny, it turns out.

Drebin: Now, now. I'm certain we can resolve this like the mature, rational adults we both are. Isn't that right, Mr. Poopie Pants?

  • In Scott Pilgrim vs. the World, while trying to dissuade Scott from romantically pursuing Ramona, Julie says she didn't want Scott to know Ramona had just broken up with someone because he's "a total lady killer wannabe jerky jerk." (Emphasis added.)

Live Action TV


Bobo (trying and failing to read a letter): It says you're a dodo-head.
Observer: I'm the dodo-head? Why, of all the unmitigated gall! You're the dodo-head!

  • Peep Show: Mark, trying to get out of marrying Sophie, resolves to go over to someone and insult them, but can only think of saying "jizz-cock", which he laments is like calling someone a "piss-kidney" as a properly working cock would jizz. He nevertheless does it, and berates himself for not going with "arsehole" after the person he confronts calls him that.
  • Sheldon of The Big Bang Theory resorts to these kinds of insults when he doesn't have time to think of a good comeback, and will actually apologize for his "language" to whoever is there with him.

Video Games

  • Portal 2: At a certain point in the game, Wheatley is inspired to imitate GLaDOS' Deadpan Snarking at Chell earlier in the game about her weight and Parental Abandonment. The best he can come up with is "Fatty fatty no-parents."
    • GLaDOS is prone to juvenile insults this herself, particularly in the first game.

GLaDOS: All your other friends were invited, too, but they couldn't come because you don't have any other friends.


Caller: (A woman who sounds about mid-30's) Nany nany boo-boo, stick your head in doo-doo!


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

    • Honourable mention goes to Rugal when he is defeated in King of Fighters '95.

Rugal: I'll be back... you jerks!


M. Bison: My soldiers are skilled, but I am supreme.
Guy: Yea, a supreme fat-head!

  • Most of the trash talk in Team Fortress 2 is of this calibre. With the Spy, it's doubly hilarious because he says fratboy-level insults as if he's James Bond.
  • Monkey Island‍'‍s Insult Swordfighting always give you the option to wittingly insult your opponent with "you're ugly!" and "you're stupid!". These insults automatically fail, with the only rebuttal being "is that the best you can come up with?".

Web Comics

Western Animation

  • In Family Guy, a girl told Bill Cosby that the guy who molested her had "a big stupid doodoo head".
  • In The Simpsons, after an accident with a proton accelerator while at college, Homer was assigned some outside tutoring by the Dean. Homer decides to get revenge by prank calling the Dean:

(telephone rings, Dean picks up)
Dean: Hello?
Homer: (in poorly-disguised voice) Hello, Dean? You're a stupid-head!
Dean: (looks out window, sees Homer at phone booth) Homer, is that you?
Homer: AAH! (flees)

  • Codename: Kids Next Door, considering that they're all ten years old, has the word "Dummyhead" used several times.
  • From Ed, Edd 'n' Eddy, " Stinkyhat" and "Odiferous curdcoat!"
  • SpongeBob SquarePants has Patrick calling a gang of bikers "little baby doody heads."
  • Futurama is the Trope Namer. Leela used it as a capstone to an angry rant.
  • In Part 2 of the My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic episode "The Return Of Harmony", Fluttershy calls Discord "That big dumb meanie".
    • Pinkie's song in the second part of the pilot has a line that goes "And tell that big dumb scary face to take a hike and leave you alone!"
  • In The Real Ghostbusters Halloween Special, a monster named Boogaloo is terrorizing the city. Peter tries to get its attention. "Hey, Boogaloo! You're ugly and your mother dresses you funny!". For the record, Boogaloo is about a hundred feet tall, covered in multiple faces and tentacles, and not wearing any clothing at all. Nevertheless, it works.

Boogaloo: That's cute. I hate cute.


Bubbles: (straining with all her reserve) I'm...not...gonna...cry...you...big...DOO-DOO BRAIN!!
