Term that refers to one who is a novice, a greenhorn, a student/disciple, a subordinate, or just simply ignorant.

Has its origins from the "Kung Fu" television series from the 1970s, starring David Carradine as the Shaolin priest Kwai Chang Caine. As a young student at the Shaolin temple, Caine, in his youthful ignorance, takes pity on a blind Shaolin master, believing the master's blindness to be a terrible affliction. The master quickly corrects Caine, illustrating that despite his blindness, his awareness of the world is much higher than Caine's -- for example, the master takes notice of the grasshopper at Caine's feet whereas Caine does not.

From that moment on, the blind master befriends Caine and becomes a mentor to him. He gives Caine the nickname of "Grasshopper" in an affectionate reference to this first encounter.

A term for someone learning from a wiser master. Often used in mockery when something is 'common knowledge' that is easily forgotten.

This word is similar to padwan.

Dumb little bugs who get off on jumping around in the grass in my back yard. They make really good eating when deep fried. They a good and tasty and crunchy source of vitamin C and various and sundry proteins. My cat likes them too though, so we fight over who can catch them the fastest.
