Yesterday’s word

The word muppet is “a stupid person; a fool”

First usage

This word came into being in the 1950s

Background / Comments

I’ve only heard muppet referring to Jim Henson’s puppets. The word was indeed coined by Jim Henson to describe his puppets. Presumably, the word spread to the more general meaning.
