Bonnie Shaljean-"around where I grew up, we just used it as shorthand for being stupid/silly. We called each other dingleberries all the time."

I've heard 'em used in that context too. Perhaps it's akin to 'hayseed' in the sense it's a derogatory remark aimed at rube-ish behavior.

I knew a boy in school who was endlessly teased he smelt of cows. Poor Leon, he had to milk every morning and from the looks of his house I'd say there weren't any shower.
