Eejit is an endearing Irish word for someone who acts the fool or doesn't mind making a fool of themselves. It can also be used as an insult but usually only if it has the word "f**ckin" in front of it. And even then, in Ireland that could still be a compliment depending on your tone of voice. We like to pepper our conversation with profanities but we don't see this as bad language, it just means we like you. And anyway, all bad words sound better with an Irish accent.
