Has anyone given thoughtful introspection to the coincidence that negative connotations are turned positive by minority culture? Ridiculous - Black jazz; Fat -> "Phat" - urban culture; etc. Someone should delve into that.

(And I still hate the trend to "delve." into crap. It nauseates me similarly as "elucidate," as a false surrogate for academic rigor in science, makes me want to hurl.)

Jim: Also "ill" and "sick."

To minimize the "bad means good" syndrome, I have taken to using "redonkuklous" when describing true ridiculosity. It has a lovely mouthfeel too.
