An outdated proclamation of satisfaction usually made in a semi-British accent by a CPA (Certified Peeler of Assorted fruits).

Always accompanied by locking the arm to a 90 degree angle and swiping in a downward motion, possibly to disguise the soiling of the front of the pants.

Can be either preceded/followed by an expression of "damn shit".

Mr. Rick: Damn shit..Good show!!
