Chooch

derivation; noun
a term for an idiot, moron, or any word that can be used to describe a stubborn and common sense-lacking person.
 
The Italian ciuccio, which “chooch” is derived from, is literally a pacifier for children. But in the southern parts of Italy, it can mean a donkey or an ass, lending us the definition of a jackass. There is an American movie entitled Chooch with the subtitle of “There’s more than one way to spell ‘jackass.’”
Etymology : Derived from the Italian ciuccio. It is unclear whether this derivation was created in Italy or when Italian immigrated to America.
