The word "nimnul" made its way into English slang through the late 70's sitcom Mork and Mindy. The goofy alien, Mork from Ork, would call you a nimnul if you were being an idiot.

It is commonly spelled "nimno". A nimno is not just an idiot, but a clueless buffoon who makes an ass of himself without ever knowing it.
