re

noun; clipping
dumba**, someone who does something stupid I first heard my cousin say this to me when we were little. She called me a re when I did something wrong. Even when I was that young I knew that it was short for retard and that made me upset because I told her I was not stupid. Though retard is not politically correct, it is a slang word to describe someone who acts like they are mentally handicapped. Thus, it has come to mean a dim-witted and senseless person. In this way retard is a metaphor for a daft person. In addition, retard has now been shorted to re in recent years by a process called clipping.
 
You RE! The piece goes in this part of the puzzle.
