What's in a name?
Do you ever wonder about the origins of slang words we use? I sure do. I wonder about the guy who invented words and phrases such as "idiot," "barf" and "bling-bling."
Iíve always wondered how a word gets used and spread, until everybody knows it. Because of this curiosity, Iíve always wanted to come up with a new word to promote.
In the spring of 1999, I finally found that word.
It was around one oíclock in the afternoon, and I was in the kitchen trying to decide what to have for breakfast. My roommate, a very unusual character, ran downstairs and through the kitchen on his way to work.
He was known in my circle of friends for having quite an imagination, and had a bizarre habit of making up stupid names to call everybody.
As he ran past, I said, "Good morning, Bryan."
"Shut up, dorfus crack tractor," was his only reply. And then he was gone.
Dorfus crack tractor. Interesting, and very funny. It made me laugh; I had found my "word."
I began thinking about how the word (actually a phrase) should be properly spelled and used.
The first part, "dorfus," made perfect sense. It was a combination of "dork" and "dufus."
The second part, "crack," could have several origins and uses. Here are some examples:
1) He is a crackpot.
2) She is a crackerjack fighter pilot.
3) The President must be on crack.
The third part of the word, "tractor," really made no sense, but it sounded good with rest of the word. I decided that "crack" and "tractor" should be combined, but not hyphenated. The "T" should always remain capitalized. Thus, the final proper spelling: Dorfus CrackTractor.
Say the word out loud. Funny, isnít it? Now try it on a friend.
The term can be used in several ways. First and foremost, it is a mildly affectionate insult to refer to oneís friends.
For example, my "boss" and good friend, Kevin Noland, is a real Dorfus CrackTractor, and I remind him every chance I get.
Remember, the full term "Dorfus CrackTractor" must be used as a noun only. However, "cracktractor"by itself may also be used as an adjective, meaning "all messed up." Examples:
1) She had a really cracktractor day.
2) We thought the war museum would be cool, but the whole thing was cracktractor.
It may also be used as a verb. Example: The cat stepped on the keyboard, and now the computer is cracktractored.
CrackTractor may also stand alone as a noun. Example: My boss is such a CrackTractor.
The word is spreading, and there are confirmend uses of the phrase Dorfus CrackTractor in California, Kansas, Oklahoma, South Carolina and Texas thanks to me and Kevin.
In Kansas alone, the phrase has been spread in Kansas City, Medicine Lodge, Salina and Wichita. There is even one confirmed case of a teacher calling a student by the name.
Kevin and I have even decided to name our brand new rock band after the phrase.
