Italian or Italian-American slang for someone who did something foolish or silly. Usually aimed at males, and usually not in an overly hostile manner. More a term to use with a friend or family member in a teasing way that may also be a veiled insult against their manhood.

When a father calls his son a mamaluke, the word is often followed by a swift palm-smack against the back of the head.

May have originally come from Mameluke or Mamluke - Arab mercenaries who were most powerful from about the 13th to 16th centuries. Napoleon used these cavalry warriors as well. Their uniforms; white turbans, vests, red pants and equally colorful boots, may well have spurred the foolish, silly and/or unmanly label.
Mamaluke, take those olives off your fingers.
*smack*

A young male who is acting in a mindless and foolish manner and in so doing either creates or threatens some havoc or destruction. Early exhibitions of machismo, but in some silly fashion. My northern Italian grandmother explained it to me that the mamalukes were young Turkish warriors raised from infancy to be warriors who blindly followed orders - the cannon fodder.
Five year old Stevie knocked the pie off the counter and upset the chair while chasing his sister and roaring like a lion. What a mamaluke!

Italian-American slang for someone acting stupid, derived from the Sicilian word "vavaluci" meaning snail.

Why you gotta act like some kinda mamaluke?

n. The male version of a woman's camel toe. The male's pants are pulled tight in an upward fashion inducing the testicles to form a hoof print pattern. These can be easily domesticated and they are a rare treat to see in the wild.
Jon always gets away with showing his mamaluke to friends while walking into class.

a made guy, who serves as a sacrafice to other made guys, when they are in trouble. The mamaluke usualy doesn't know hes the mamaluke, even after hes been sacraficed.
Im doing that mamluke's wife, daily, and that mamaluke's taking me to lunch at Carmines pizzaria.
