Bringing “dudical!” back

Dudical! is an expression I remember hearing in elementary school. A clever combination of “dude!” and “radical!”, it clearly suffered an untimely demise, because a Google search on it returns a paltry 523 results. I consider it my duty to rescue this ’80s linguistic gem from obscurity. Who’s with me?

Unfortunately, somebody’s already registered, but if you use this word in your writing, post it on and tag it “dudical“. Let’s see if we can bring dudical back.

Update: My ex-friend Neil has one word for this crusade: dorkical. (Good news, Neil: is still available!)

Update: Props to the Saint Pete Times for using dudical in a headline. The story’s about how their ’80s blog won an Online Journalism Award.
