re: Wicked pissa

I grew up on the South Shore and people may have used a couple times - very rarely though - only for once in a lifetime things, or really awesome things like the BoSox winning the World Series. It's usually posers who use it in my area, or outta staters who don't even know how to use it.

re: Wicked pissa

In portuguese,"pissa" is a non-dictionarized slangy word that translates to the english slangy Dick Tracy - without last name and capitalizing. The pronounciation is almost like the one described above: the "i" sounds ea, as in sea.

re: Wicked pissa

I grew up on the Noath Shoah (1958-1976) and I don't ever recall saying "wickid pissa". I'm not even sure I ever said "wickid". Either I'm a "Brahmin" or it came along after my time ;)

re: Wicked pissa

I grew up in Br'ricka in the 60s-70s and heard "wicked," "pissa," and the occasional "wicked pissa"... i think overuse by Charles Laquedera on WBCN in the 70s-80s made it kind of a stoopid cliche thing.

re: Wicked pissa

In my mind's ear I hear "Whoa . . . pissah!" much more easily than "wickid pissah" - which sounds extravagant.And it's "wickit", not "wickid" - at least in western Mass.

you ah wrong kid

I grew in dotty - cousins in southie and JP - we all say wicked pissa - so suck it! Also, everyone on north and south shore says the same. Don't hate on our vernacular poser
