    Etimoloji

    () The Australian slang is from a racehorse called Drongo (foaled 1921, retired 1925) which ran poorly, and by transferrance anyone slow-witted or clumsy became a drongo. (Reference: Bill Wannan, Australian Folklore, Lansdowne Press, 1970, reprint 1979 ISBN 0-7018-1309-1, entry for "Drongo", page 200.) The horse was apparently named for the bird the Spangled Drongo (Dicrurus bracteatus). An alternative derivation for the Australian slang form of the word is from the Scottish Gaelic word drongair meaning drunkard.
