Noun: From the popular character Baldrick in Britis sitcom Blackadder. Baldrick's defining feature is a kind of innocent stupidity. Therefore, someone who makes honest mistakes on a regular basis might be described as a baldrick"
"Blackadder:Baldrick, what are you doing?
Baldrick: I'm carving something on this bullet sir.
Blackadder: I see. And What are ou carving?
Baldrick: I'm carving Baldrick sir.
Baldrick: Well, you know how they say that somewhere out there, there's a bullet with yur name on it, I thought if I owned thee hullet with my name on it I'd be safe, because I'll never shoot myself...
Blackadder: really? Pity...
Baldrick:...and the chances of there being two bulletes with my name on are very slim indeed."
Anyone capable of this kind of idiocy is a potential baldrick.
