It was the “dude” heard ’round the world. Bret Baier’s interview with the former National Security Council spokesman inspired more Internet mockery. This time it’s in the form of a #ReplaceFamousQuoteWithDude hashtag game.

            Hmm, not in my world. Especially in a forum like this where I so easily (and understandably) get mistaken for a dude, and not a dudette. It might be a generational thing.

          • Ryan Schneider.

            Speaking of generations, 100 years ago, “dude” was an old western expression for a wealthy, ignorant city slicker, a fancy greenhorn. Apparently, they have been inbreeding in places like Beverly Hills and Jersey Island since then, intensifying the condition. An intervention is needed.

    Having been born/raised in SoCal the word ‘dude’ is part of my vernacular and one I still use, but only in casual conversation. It’s really unprofessional and inappropriate to use it in a professional setting the way this clown did. I’m glad he’s being properly and fantastically mocked for it.

      • Michelle ✓classified

        Here in SoCal we were using ‘dude’ long before the rest of the country was introduced Valley Girls, Surfers and Stoners. There was one time, when I lived in Boston, that I let ‘dude’ slip out of my mouth at work. My boss (the President of the company) was yanking my chain in a humorous way, as we always did with each other, having some giggles (casual convo, but still, at work) and I said, “Dude, are you kidding me?” And he said, “Did you just call me Dude?” (He was more surprised to hear the word used in Boston than he was surprised it was used at work). I shrugged and said, “I certainly did. I’m a California Girl, deal with it.” And…we laughed!

    • Malcolm Reynolds

      I recently noticed your avatar image and now I keep seeing it. Are you fond of numismatics or is that just a coincidence?

      • MemorialDime

        I am. Coin collecting is a hobby of mine.

        • Lou Bator

          Cool, dude, mine too!

        • Malcolm Reynolds

          Sweet. Me too. What’s your favorite? Mine are the Washington quarters, tho I’ve got a smattering of other stuff. I’m almost done with the collection.

          • MemorialDime

            I’m almost done with the State quarters, and I’m working on Presidential dollars, but I collect one or two of every design I can. My favorite is either the Mercury dimes or the Franklin half-dollars.

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            Cool. I wasn’t particularly interested in the state quarters when they first started, but I had some extra cash and bought the mint bags and the annual sets. Have all of them in proof, silver proof, and BU. Have a few Franklins and just started a Mercury collection too. Oof they’re expensive.

          • MemorialDime

            I found a proof quarter in my pocket change once. I also found an 1889 Indian Head penny in my aunt’s coin jar once, too. The penny looks terrible, but it’s my favorite of my collection.

            They make for interesting stories!

          • Malcolm Reynolds

            That’s the kind of thing that got me interested too. Lived in Germany as a teen and found a 10 phenning coin complete with swastika on it in the front yard. Also got me interested in history. I think I still have it somewhere.

          • Republicanvet

            I found an 1888 Indian Head penny under the monkey bars once when I was a kid. My Dad found an 1889 nickel in the back yard the first time I let him use my metal detector.

          • Republicanvet

            I’ve collected pennies, dimes, nickels, quarters, half dollars and silver dollars, with at least 5 nickels for every year dating to 1939.

            I have traveled to over 18 countries as a civilian or in the Army, and I found early on that collecting coins from wherever I went was a good souvenir, so I also have lots from other countries…including several with Saddam’s mug on them.
