   This is one term seen a lot these days. People use it without knowing the meaning or without knowing the proper meaning. Believed to be originating from hollywood, It's an acronym with objectionable full form. It may also have been originated from those hippies with pencil cut jeans which starts way below the hip, sided caps, black glasses, and a big S hung around the neck. The usage in the internet is a word substitution for the word 'cool'.
