/da oodes/ noun
Starcrossed individuals who are predestined to slip, stumble or dive into a socially awkward position. A doode is usually unaware of the faux-pas, but, may on occasion delight in the mutual discomfort. A doodes is functionally similar to a Larry David.
The doodes smiled broadly at the new father, "So you are African American and your wife is Japanese... what does that child look like?".
Ah, said the doodes, "So I called the wrong person? Oh, the other ethnic person. Hmmm, no, I didn't confuse you with someone else of the same race. Yes, I realize you are all individuals."
The doode's brow furled, "Mo? Who is Mo? Oh, you are referring to Carl the hoMOsexual, correct?" A look of surprise, "Oh actually Mohammad... certainly a different way to go."
