In my past this was often a derogatory term which could run the gamut of meaning from dick-head, shit-head or dumb-ass.
Today it's beginning to take on new meaning in the world of marketing. Yes, that's right, leave it to us Creative Morons of Madison and Park Ridge Avenues to make a dip "stick"!
The first creative use is in a Castrol commercial featuring a Scottish ad-man gone mad, who challenges Jimmy to "Think with your dipstick!"
A creative way to remind us to us the official automotive version to check our oil, preferably Castrol, unless you like Strapping Scottish Lads Whacking Your Fanny with Metal Whips!
Of course all men think with their "dipstick", just ask any Lady of our Realm! Especially Scottish Lasses showing their Arses!
The most recent reinvention of "dipstick" is closer to the Tripod, the Trouser Trout, the Royal Mace, etc...that we all know and love, however big or small.
Dr. Oz of Oprah fame, not to be confused with the Wizard, recently presented a study of sexuality and its correlation to health on Good Morning America. In his presentation he called the male penis, "the Dipstick of Health".
That's right! Apparently how often and well we use the dipstick depends on how healthy we are. First we have pastors of churches issuing sex challenges, now we have scientific medical data that shows that we look and feel younger in direct proportion to how sexual we are. No wonder I look so young!!!
So, there you have it...now that's thinking with your Dipstick Jimmy!
