Someone called me a "penedejo", what does it mean in Mexican?

I’m guessing it’s Mexican language? Because my coffee fell on my way to class and some guy yelled out "Penedejo!", and everyone laughed, so I just left. But I never knew what it meant.. So what does it mean
I tried to look for a Mexican dictionary, but I couldn’t find one online.


  1. Pendejo may be translated as "dumbass" in many situations, though it carries an extra implication of rank and willful incompetence. The less extreme version, which is used in most Spanish speaking countries, translates more or less as "jackass". The term however, has very high offensive connotations in Puerto Rico.
