The ordinary-sized words are for everyone, but the big ones are especially for children.

Sunday Rest: himbo. Word Not To Use Today.

I told you there was an even worse word than bimbo, didn't I?

It means the same thing as bimbo - someone good-looking but empty-headed - but himbo is used, of course, of a man. 

Well, it's used by those who enjoy belittling people, anyway.

So: that's just the insecure and vicious amongst us, then.

Sunday Rest: himbo. This word is a blend of him and bimbo, and it was made up in the 1980s. Luckily it's rather rare - though not nearly rare enough.
