Duh” was big in the 1960s, by the way, when it was a shortened form of the original — do you remember? I remember! — “uh buh duh.” I’m guessing at that spelling. Was it ever written? Maybe it should be spelled “ubbaduh.”
Actually, I don’t remember that. Admitted, I was pumping a lot of mind-altering substances into my body, legal and illegal during those years, but no. I don’t remember “uh buh duh.”
How about you, fellow geezers? Ring any bells?
Maybe it was a regional thing.
