Funny Limo - Limbo (+ Bimbo?)
Will and Guy's Humour - Funny Limo and Bimbo Stories
Have you ever been in a stretch limo? A bunch of us were working in London and staying in the Scandic Hotel at Rotherhithe London. The Scandic was a beautiful hotel, on the river front, but miles from where we worked. The firm that employed us paid for a taxi to take us to and from work. One of the drivers in the taxi firm had a stretch limo, I remember the amazing leg room, shame we were working because it meant we could not partake of the cocktail cabinet.

In the 80s we had numerous acronyms to describe groups for example YUPPIE 'Young Upwardly Mobile Professional Person' , it is said that Bimbo came from: 'Brainless Individual, Meretricious Blonde Ornament', but I am not sure about this derivation. Bimbo is a word said to have undergone backronym, where its letters are assigned different meanings from the original. For example: 'Body impressive, brain optional' .
The word Bimbo to mean a stupid man, was a disparaging term used by the London gay set as part of their ' Polari' language. My guess is that an Italian in London coined the word as in Italian, bimbo means baby. This provenance seems believable, especially when you look at the ending 'o' , which is far more common in male names than female names. Tito, Adriano, Sancho, Silvino, Rico, Marco. Knowing this history, it is easy to see how the phrase 'male bimbo' originated.
