NINNYHAMMER

By
Real Estate Agent with Re/Max Professional Asociates 74203

Sorry James but I couldn't resist.  A ninnyhammer is a term for a fool or a simpleton.  The word first appeared in the sixteenth century,  Although its origin isn't very clear.  The experts guess  that it is a combination of ninny and hammer head.

So, as James would say, do you know any ninnyhammers?

Good morning Conrad,

Thank you, I love this word and have heard it before...I just keep hoping I won't slip and say it directly to anyone.  Some days are harder than others!
