Pronunciation: duuh - bate

Sentence: When I told my brother that I was going to take a little time to travel across the Midwest, he launched into a duhbate about how unsafe it was and roving bands of renegade rodeo stars that wander the streets. He told me he had spent some time there during his own rodeo days and he had first hand experience; i know better- that he's never left the New York Metro area.

Etymology: duh + debate
