In my daughter's magazine Y/M, there's a reference to a male bimbo as a

"himbo." I can get the actual documentation if anyone's interested, but

I wasn't certain if this one had been previously noted or not. Lemme know

if you want more on it.

We have four or so cites for this in the forthcoming Vol. II of

Random House Historical Dictionary of American Slang, the earliest

from 1988. Another one would always be helpful, though, if you

feel like posting the actual cite and bibliographical info.
