    Should "the" be used in this sentence?

    He stole my bike! Idiot ! (or "the idiot"?).

    Re: Should "the" be used in this sentence?

    I agree. Without the word the is fine, but it also might be used with the occasionally.
    .
    However, a more typical exclamation might be:
    "What an idiot!"
    .
