  • The term "dork" is an american slang term for a quirky, silly and/or stupid, socially inept person, or one who is out of touch with contemporary trends It is also a vulgar slang term for penis. The original sense of dork was penis. It is probably an alteration of dick, dating to the early 1960s. From Jere Peacock’s 1961 "Valhalla" - You satisfy many women with that dorque? In 1964, the term was captured in the May 1964 issue of American Speech: The word dick itself serves as a model for two variants which are probably Midwestern, "dirk" and "dork", also meaning “penis.” The sense of a contemptible person dates to at least 1967. From Moser’s and Cohen’s Pied Piper of that year: I didn’t have any clothes and I had short hair and looked like a dork. Girls wouldn’t go out with me. There is nothing about the word which indicates anything specifically about whales. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dork http://www.etymonline.com/index.php?term=dork http://www.wordorigins.org/index.php/site/comments/dork/
