What is a Minkukel?

Minkukel is a Dutch word. Marten Toonder, who is the author of a Dutch series of comic books, introduced this word in one of his stories about Oliver B. Bumble (in Dutch: Olivier B. Bommel).

In the story “Tom Poes en het kukel” (1963), some extraterrestrials measured the Kukel of professor Prlwytzkofsky’s brain, and classified him as having a negative kukel (min kukel).

The word minkukel has since been used in the Dutch language as a synonym for words like twit, numskull, softy, dotard, blockhead, beetle brain, brainless, stupid person, silly person, moron, fool, nitwit, half wit, dummy, simpleton, civil servant, etc.
