Wicker pissant?

Speaking of Fark, I've noticed that everytime there's a Boston news item greenlighted on the page someone inevitably posts the phrase "Wicked pissah!" in the comments thread, as if it's something New Englanders say when something bad happens (like "D'oh!"). Having learned the hard way - i.e., by having my ass laughed at in a public place - that this is not in fact what it means, I thought I'd spare my fellow readers the potential future humiliation by way of offering a little language lesson right here and now, gratis:

"Wicked" = a lot

"Pissah" = superb

So "Wicked pissah!" = something like "Awesome!"

Got it? Wicked pissah! Now go tell a friend.
