In German, Bimbo means more or less the N- Word. So be careful while using it in Germany.

I heard my Filipino friend refer to her cousin as Bimbo and laughed, assuming it was her female cousin... Turns out it was her male cousin and she claimed it meant 'cheeky boy' being his nickname from when he was young... He was an adult with his own children but he was still referred to as that amongst close family.

Sir, Tammy Fay Baker is no sane person's idea of a bimbo. I'd be more inclined to place her in the withered old hag or gargoyle category.

Bimbo as I remember was the titular male character of a UK children's comic in the 1960's. He was a young boy dressed in blue and white. \nI also recall being confused aged 10 or 11 when my mum referred to a woman on the telly as a bimbo!

Oh god, her eyebrows were drawn all the way back to her temples.... The old puffed out hair styles made women look less attractive.... It just makes them look like they have a giant head or they're wearing a crazy wig. It also accentuates and frames their faces in a way that makes them look more masculine. So, we can call the style the Faux Drag Queen.

I'm surprised that Hart wasn't given the job of American president because of his affair(s). All presidents think that promiscuity is their God given right.

Bimbo is Italian for a baby boy. Bimba is Italian for a baby girl. The plurals are bimbi and bimbe. The American slang use of the word makes no sense at all.

Bimbo is not from italian bambino. Bimbo is itself an italian synonim of bambino, we don't use this word as you guys do, bimbo is just a kid.

Jessica Hahn... Bimbo for being raped? I think she was smart. Knowing that her rep was destroyed, she did do the best she could with what she had. I suspect she made a pretty penny doing it, too.

In German the word is commonly used as a term for black males or for any male that isn't very bright\n - as a asult in both cases

In Italian bimbo is the English equivalent to kid, where bambino is the equivalent of child.

Now, I'm surprised. I didn't knew that Bimbo has a utterly different meaning in English.\nIn German Bimbo is pejorative for black, mostly men and often in the phrase: I'm not your Bimbo (=not your slave)

There was a song called Bimbo in the '50s sung by Jim Reeves. My parents, thinking my sister was a boy, called her Bimbo since before she was born. There was nothing sexual about it. In fact, she credits Laverne & Shirley for reviving it as an air-headed woman in more recent times.

Well, acting like a bimbo can be useful if you want to avoid persecution, especially in political cases.
