Meaning of joey

joey means: An excessively stupid or unpleasant person. Derived from Joey Deacon an elderly man suffering from cerebral palsy who regularly featured on television 1980-85. Another contributor supplied the following entered verbatim: To infer that the recipient was, in some manner, mentally impaired or stupid, In widespread use (in my experience) throughout London schools in the early 1980's. Derives from Joey Deacon, an unfortunate, severely mentally handicapped man featured on children's TV show Blue Peter. Or rather, thrown in front of a camera crew & routinely patronized once a week by Simon Groom & his lover, platinum quadruped Goldie. Originally intended to improve children's understanding of the plight of the disabled. Failed. Alan wasn't too impressed with the above - also entered verbatim: I appreciate that the additional entry is verbatim from the contributor, but there are two main errors in it. First he means "imply" and not "infer" - a common mistake by joeys - and also states that Joey Deacon was severely mentally handicapped. In fact he suffered from cerebral palsy (as your main entry states) which is a physical handicap not a mental one. I would add that, round my way, the preferred gesture to accompany the call of "Joey Deacon!!" (for some reason we always used the full name) was to clap the backs of the hands together, in imitation I suppose of a physically handicapped person. Nice.
