Bet you haven’t heard of a himbo!

You’ve surely heard of a bimbo (used about someone else in a nasty way). Nowadays bimbo refers to a physically attractive but unintelligent woman. Earlier the word bimbo was used for men. One probable origin is the derivative of the Italian word bambino (child in Italian). One of the earliest uses of bimbo for women is in the 1929 silent movie Desert Nights, where a wealthy female criminal is a bimbo.

What is a Himbo?

Himbo is a new word to denote the male version of a bimbo. Like a bimbo, a himbo is noticed for outer packaging and the lack of inner depth.
