Don’t know the proper spelling but isn’t “numnutz” a term used by the 3 Stooges? I always thought the nuts part meant crazy, not a refererence to nuts.

Exchanging the numbnuts card for the racist card? Looks like trouble is in the works for Christie.

Can’t fault him for that. It is my word of choice when my husband or any of my 3 grown sons do something incredibly stupid (in that loving way only a Mom and wife can do).

The expression was originally “numbnut”, the nut in this case meaning “head”.

It was a synonym for numbskull.

Somewhere along the line the “s” was added, giving it a different, decidedly vulgar connotation.

Why would the guy being gay have anything to do with it. A straight person’s nuts can be numb, too.

BTW, I think “numbskull” was the word commonly used by the Three Stooges, although it’s been decades since I’ve watched a Three Stooges bit.

In the context that Christie used it the plural, numbnuts, was appropriate.
