The end of the measuring tape that starts at zero. All an individual has to do is hold the "dummy end", while the other person stretches out the measuring tape and does the actual measuring. Commonly used to describe a complete moron that is incompetent at a given task.
Roger: Uhh Scott I noticed you ate your steak with a knife and spoon earlier, so why don't you hold the dummy end of the measuring tape and I'll measure.
Scott: Cool..!

Justin: Man, did you see Mr. MacCormack the other day shoveling his driveway!? He was using a fuckin' icepick!
Tristan: Haha yeah, he definitely holds the dummy end

Jul 12 Word of the Day
The horrible moment when you realise that you have accidentally done something very slightly wrong which has very bad (usually embarassing) implications for you. This is typically the moment of realisation that you just sent a dirty text message to a close member of family, typically your mother, rather than the intended recipient.
Message: "i'm free this afternoon so come over and fuck me senseless, my parents will be out all day"
Recipient: Mum
