Literally, vulgar slang for penis, not to be used lightly. More offensive than the schmuck, which can be used affectionately or teasingly. Rarely used to describe the member, schmuck does that. Def. from the "Joys of Yiddish" by Leo Rosten
What a putz! Used the same as What an asshole!
(n) a stupid, ignorant person; someone who doesn't pay attention to anything going on; one who makes stupid remarks
**bumps into a pole on the sidewalk, then a person, keeps going** J: what a putz! didn't he see me here??"
Used also to describe someone who is taking their time in a lazy manner. This is akin to saying that someone was lazy for an undefined period of time (see putzing, putzes, or putzed).
Joe was a putz with his computer.
Chuck putzes in his office.
Matt putzed on the golf course all day.
A "putz" is yiddish (derogatory) for prick.
Oh, don't be such a putz!
Putz technically means fool or jerk. Vulgarly it means penis. In german it is Aufputz which means 'to clean'
He's a putz... ie... He's a jerk
He has/is a putz... ie... He has/is a penis
A putz is a numbnuts who hasn't a clue that s/he is so so so very dumb or clueless. A true putz is not only stupid or completely 'out of it', but s/he is also aggressive or combative about his/her totally inept decision-making.
Mike and Louise are such putzes. Wow, they just keep compounding their previous errors and dumb moves with
even worse ones!
1. the penis
2. a stupid or obnoxious person
You little putz! Who do you think you are?
