Southern Californian, L.A. Basin-area. Derived from the common exclamation,"That's awesome
!" The origination of "AUSS!" was usage in emails to avoid overusing "awesome" which has become commonplace in American English to describe people,events,achievements and so forth. Proponents describe "AUSS!" as, "As best of replacement for the beloved AWESOME! as we could come up with. We love "AWESOME!", but every skatepunk
, housewife, contractor, teacher and kid uses it. It's tired and needs a rest already."
It's best usage is in an email reply in all upper caps and with an explanation by itself. As an example,if someone proposes seeing the latest cool movie you can reply with the single,"AUSS!" Levels of excitement maybe expressed with additional exclamation points.
Level 2= "AUSS!!"
Level 3 to infinity= "AUSS!!!!!!!!!!!!..."
Usually seen as just ,"AUSS!" Other usages in sentences are: "That movie was AUSS!", Sheena Easton was AUSS!!!, You won the lottery??? AUSS!!!!!!
