A more affectionate way of calling someone a retard
or a douchetard
. Meant as an insult, but not as a serious one; often used between friends.
Inspired by Couche-Tard, the Canadian convenience store chain. "Couche-tard" is French for "night owl", literally meaning "goes to bed late." But because of its similarity in sound to the English insult douchetard
, "couchetard" was converted into an English-language insult with a meaning similar to douchetard
but less offensive -- even bordering on affectionate.
Also "couchetarded", adj.
He's my best friend, but let's be honest, he can be a couchetard sometimes when he's not thinking.
