Learn about our Editorial Process Updated on 02/12/20 Doy or doi is the pop culture insult that says, "no kidding!" or "that was pretty self-evident, and you're stupid." It is the same derogatory meaning as duh or doh. How 'Doy' Is Used Online You would say "doy" in any text chat or in-person conversation when the other person exclaims something that is painfully obvious to the rest of the group. Examples of 'Doy' Example 1 Greg: Hey, this ice is cold. Susan: Doy, genius! Example 2 Tuan: Are you at home right now? Suresh: Doy! Can't you hear my parents yelling in the background? Example 3 Kandace: Do you have a cat? Alvin: Doy! Can't you see all the fur stuck to my coat? Origin of the Doy/Doi/Duh Expression While the origin of doy/doi/duh is up for debate, some people say that it is an English variation of the Russian 'да' word, which means yes. According to other pop culture historians, doy/doi/duh was popularized by the comic book Archie. Doy, like most cultural curiosities and memes of the web, has become part of daily English communications.
