My phrase of “boo boo the fool” isn’t really used in everyday language; in my opinion, it’s mostly common in black households. In other words, it’s used by black parents or the black community to be specific –basically the phrase means, “Do I look stupid to you?”
Here’s a scene of how the phrase is used:
(Mom) Where are you going?
(Son) I’m going to the bank with my friends.
(Mom) Why do you have a face mask on?
(Son) It’s cold outside.
(Mom) Do I look like boo boo the fool?
When looking up the etymology of (boo-boo) it was revealed that “boo-boo” was a word from the 1930s which means “stupid person,” which influenced the phrase “boo boo the fool.” The word “boo” came from a Philadelphia gangster named Max “Boo-Boo Hoff.”
Max Hoff’s nickname came from the fact that he was a Bootlegger (Boo Boo Hoff)
