Bonehead

What does Bonehead mean?

‘Bonehead’ equals ‘Dumb’

When you hear the term ‘Bonehead’, you’re probably thinking of someone who’s not the brightest bulb in the box. This slang term is used to call out someone who’s not making the smartest decisions or who just doesn’t seem to have their wits about them.

The phrase ‘Bonehead’ is linked to the amusing idea that the person’s skull is so thick, it’s difficult for them to think intelligently or pay attention to sound advice. So, it’s a fun way of saying someone’s not thinking straight or just being plain stubborn.

Just remember, if you’re called a ‘Bonehead’, it doesn’t mean you’re not smart. It just means someone thinks you’re not making wise choices or you’re being stubborn. It’s more about your actions than your actual intelligence.
