@Jake, as a result of your hurriedness to be a smartarse (see what I did there? Not meaning to insult you personally, just continuing the subject), I think you were, in the first instance, incorrect. I think you'll find "dumbass" is actually the joining of two words, to make a more insulting third word. An ass is biologically dumb, so really there was no real reason to join them in the first place, other than to make a better-sounding insult. (Shades of Sir Humphrey Appleby, sorry).
