Poodoo basically started out as meaning "extremely poor" or "an extremely poor person". Over the years, it has evolved to "no class", "ghetto", "dumb", "hated it" ..just all around bunk. Anything with a negative connotation can be poodoo.
A really poor family with the name "Poodoo" or "Pudu" lived in Kaplan, Louisiana and they were so poodoo that their name just stuck.
The road that the family lived on is still called Poodoo Road by local residents. Its official name, however, is Merchant Road -- named after a not-so-poodoo family, the Merchant's of Kaplan.
