Wondrous Words
"adjective 1. foolish or inane, especially in an unconscious, complacent manner; silly."

"Archie sat at the back of the second jeep, quiet, sober, frightened, and in awe of his friend. Archie had never had a hero: he was five when his father went out for a proverbial pack of  fags and neglected to return, and, never being much of a reader, the many awful books written to provide young men with fatuous heroes had never crossed his path--no swashbucklers, no one-eyed pirates, no fearless rapscallions for Archie."
