What exactly is a "dude". i once heard it was an elephants bottoms hair?
I've heard that before too, but according to Merriam Webster.com, dude is NOT a hair on an elephant's butt. It's a dandy (a man who dresses well), a city dweller or a guy or fellow.
A "Dude" is a cowboy. it was a slang used in the old west.
i once heard it was an infected hair on an elephants butt...but i like these other ppls explanatins better haha
