A way of describing something in way that shouldn't be good, and yet somehow is.

The main reference is due to the word being extensively used in Dublin, Ireland to refer to monday nights, which are always Dicey. There is also a slight reference to the dice and the aspect of chance. The idea that there was a chance that the thing wouldn’t be good but its ended up being cool, rad, mental, mad, wicked etc.

Origin: Dublin. (Row 16)
