A humorously sexist term, referring to a male bimbo. Sometimes used to disparage an intellectual lightweight (e.g. Fabio, or politicians, notably Dan Quayle or perhaps George Dubya Bush).
Brawny model Lucky Vanous shot to stardom by removing his shirt in front of a group of admiring office women in a 1994 Diet Coke commercial. Long-harried Italian muscle-boy and box-of-rocks Fabio posed for the covers of heavy breathing bodice rippers, and David Hasselhoff played a bare-chested lifeguard eternally sucking in his gut on Baywatch, the most watched television show on the planet (although not entirely because of David's assets). In Hollywood, Keanu Reeves's near-mute SWAT-team cop Jack Traven in Speed set the standard.
Personally, I don't believe that George Dubya fits the overall himbo model, he is simply an idiot.
