Gore the Mudak?

A friend e-mails (paraphrased slighly):

Russian has a word "mudak" meaning "complete idiot/loser" that is derived from the Tartar word for testicles. Anyway, it's used in a special putdown, such as:

"Gore is such a mudak that, in a contest of mudaks, he would take second place."

An interesting word.
