A person who is lacking in intelligence. It comes from the word Cretan, meaning a person from Crete. In olden times, people from Crete were considered to be lacking in intelligence, and hence, Cretan was an insulting word to be called.

1. in medical circles, someone who has a thyroid problem which results in the condition known as cretinism. It may also result from bad environmental factors.

2. a thick-headed dunce, a total dumbbutt. You can tell a cretin something and it NEVER sinks in. An absolute numbskull.
1. ... There's no stopping the cretins from hopping.
Creeee-tin! ...

All good cretins have some more!

All good cretins go to heaven!

2. When I was in high school the TV show "Entertainment Tonight" debuted and was something to talk about at the lockers. Now that show is pure trash, it's for cretins.

A completely irrelevant mope of a douchebag. Cretins possess exceptionally low intelligence and street smarts, are aroused by bathroom humour and above all love to play idiotic practical jokes. A cretin is generally reared in either a rural or suburban setting and therefore lacks many social graces necessary for sexy urban life. A cretin left to it's own devices eventually implodes in on itself. Cretins require excessive amounts of ritalin and/or Flintstones chewable vitamins. Finally they tend to respond to the name Dave.
That fucktard Dave is such a cretin. He put gunpowder in all the ashtrays at the kegger over at the Cardinal Apartments last night. What a douchebag.

The lowest form of humanity. A person that is a waste of air. A person who is lazy and doesn't contribute anything to society. Someone who kills the mood and is a hoe to their friends.
Grace Burlinson is the definition of a cretin.

an idiot. someone who cannot do even the simplest tasks right. No one likes the cretin, and is usually hated by most people for screwing up important stuff.

Comes from Romanian, "Cretin", which means idiot.
That cretin forgot to bring the basketball, again. What a complete idiot.
