Boob: (n) a foolish or stupid person.
It has two meanings, which should not necessarily coincide or even ever bump up against each other in the night.
After all, a boob is someone who is completely disconnected with reality, and is intoxicated on the fumes of idealism.
It is also a common, though crude, reference to the female breast.
It is not much of a drive on the highway of reason to realize that we believe that most pernicious air-headedness is contained in the female of our species.
This is one of those subtle clues which lets us know that even though we muster the faith and energy to tolerate one another for sexual purposes, procreation or even mutual responsibility for a mortgage, privately the war between men and women is conducted with jabs, often disguised as innocence.
