I have seen the word "maroon" used to describe our village IDiot Larry.
Although I find it amusing in its own right, I was wondering what it means.
I looked here:
< http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maroon >
and assume maroon is being used in the last "bugs bunny" description.:D
Is that correct?

It's a reference to that cultural critic, Bugs Bunny.
"Whadda maroon!" = "What a moron!"

I always thought it was a mispelling of 'Moron' - or perhaps a way of getting around a board's 'self-censorship' mechanisms ( you try using even using the word "####" around here - as in the opposite to heaven - and you see what happens..) but I thought it impolite to point it out for risk of making myself look a fool...
enjoying yourself at the 'Party' chaps?

I believe the only stupid questions are those that you don't ask.
There is something about the word "maroon" that just sounds funny and insulting. Without even knowing the real meaning it made it's point.

The Bugs Bunny usage is also self-depreciating (and humorous in itself) in the sense that he's aware of the term but apparently does not know how to properly pronounce it.
Equivalent in some degree of putting a mispelling in a spelling flame post.
