Where does chode come from?
Chode is a silly slang term, but it may have some serious roots. Green’s Dictionary of Slang finds choad in 1968 in the underground Zap Comix, speculating possible connections to the Navajo chodis (“penis”) or Hindu chod (“have sex”).
The term jumped into the mainstream in 1993 thanks to popular potty-talkers Beavis and Butt-Head, when Beavis called Butt-Head a choadsmoker, i.e., cocksucker. The show relished in other uses of chode, leaving many fans puzzled about what the term actually meant.
Indeed, by the late 1990s, some people were arguing that the chode was the perineum (area between the anus and genitalia), slangily known as the taint, gooch, or grundle, among others. And, like a lot of other slang words for taboo body parts (dick, ass), chode went on to insult someone as an “idiot” in the 1990s, with the force of a word like tool or douchebag.

In the 2000s, popular articles humorously considered the anatomic possibility of the rare, mythic chode penis. A number of comedy songs have also been inspired by the chode.
Examples of chode
Who uses chode?
When it’s existence isn’t being pondered or it’s not being used as an insult, people may call any squat and wide objects chodes.
One variety on the perineum chode insult is telling someone or something to “go suck/fuck/lick a chode.”
