Since I teach ancient world history I try to keep it interesting for the kids.

I say these dudes were very warlike. When they entered battle they would be slaughtering a bunch of other dudes to no end.

We also refer to different groups of people as "dudes" not people. For example, "The Egyptians were attacked by the Hyskos people. (Hyskos is very hard to say so shorten it to the "H" dudes). The h dudes were better armed and better trained and slaughter a bunch of Egyptians.
One of the parents came into class today and heard us talking about early Ancient Russian people groups. One student said (proudly I may add) The Cimmerians were conqured by the S dudes (she had trouble saying Sycthian). I laughed so did everyone else in the class. The parent said, so that is where Christopher got "Dude" from.
I tell you what, every group I referred to as dude they have not forgotten.
