A 'grasshopper' refers to a distasteful male or female - usually someone ugly, usually always stupid and annoying. The term is most commonly used when you are out in a social situation and somebody awful won't leave you alone. There is a hand gesture to accompany the term, which consists of you using the pointer finger of each hand to imitate antenni.
*Two attractive females are at a popular bar, minding their own business. An awful man approaches them, inisisting that they dance with him, and eventually leaves, after tireless refusals from the females.*

Sarah: Wow. That guy just wouldn't leave us alone.
Steph: I know. What a grasshopper.

*Two attractive females watch as an extremely unfortunate looking, drunk woman cracks onto some attractive men. The females then go and save the males from this drunk woman*

Steph: Woah. What a grasshopper.
Sarah: She is a grasshopper for sure.
Male: Definite grasshopper.
Male 2: Thanks for saving us from that grasshopper.

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.
