That seems to be a new one since my day (1963-74).

Of course I moved through the relatively rarefied atmosphere of MIT during much of that time. The worst you might call someone was a "douche-bag." If you wanted to be specific in verbally abusing someone of overly studious nature who had rudimentary social skills (what we now call a "nerd") the preferred term was "meat" (if you were a fraternity dweller) or a "feeb" (if you were a dormitory dweller (and therefore probably a meat yourself)).
