Yoruba have few words for fool

Olori buruku - someone with an idiotic mind
Olodo - someone with a zero IQ / academic potential
Aditi - dumb / fool
Oponu - someone too stupid to produce coherent thoughts 247
Ode - fool
Olosi - a person that gets everything wrong and devotes their life and time to unimportant and stupid things; it’s like calling a person devoted to foolishness.

The above insults can be countered very easily by responding that the ancestor of the person doing the insulting is any one of the above types of fool.

Eg Baba baba re li olori buruku
