1. What does dur mean?

Stupidly obvious

Dur is a term people use to remark on something's obviousness. For example, if your co-worker remarks about the drop in the office's productivity after 4 pm, you might respond with, "Dur, that's when people log out."

You will likely see dur in texts, online messages, and social media like Twitter and TikTok. However, you might also hear people utter it in real life to comment on others' brain farts or to remark about their own mistakes.

Additionally, dur is the same as the more common duh and derp terms. People may also say, "No dur!" to react to airhead comments.


I just realized that my aunt is your mom
No dur. We're cousins!

2. What does DUR stand for in messages?

Do you remember

DUR is a quick way to ask a person if they remember something. For example, if you don't know your grandfather's birthday, you might text your sister, "I don't remember papa's birthday. DUR?"

Most people use DUR in texts and messages online. They typically use it to get a quick piece of information they cannot recollect on their own. Usually, you won't see people message things like, "I can't remember Newton's theory. DUR?"

Remember that DUR is not well known, so you may want to type it out unless you're conversing with a slang-savvy recipient. Also, people may confuse it with "dur" and think you are calling them stupid.
