{For reference, The original discord server I originally did these on had a thing one of the staff members did, where they had a “word of the day”, and would take suggestions. Someone, jokingly, suggested “Dork” in it’s english usage. It’s not got a big etymological background, so this EOTD is really short as a consequence. Still one of my fav english words out there}

EOTD: Dork

Purposeful misspelling of “Dick”

Originally derogetory, used to refer to someone as “silly and generally socially inept”, it’s now used to refer to someone as “silly and generally socially inept” but we mean it in a more freindly teasing way instead of a mean way :P
