derived from the dead word 'awesome' which died a cruel and lingering death in the early twenty-first century. Originally something producing mouth-opening amazement, the word degenerated into a meaningless blather, frequently the opposite of its' intended meaning. Used by aspiring hipsters, noobs, and TV personalities to denote anything from the mildly interesting to the flatly mindless, its' evolution necessitated the new spelling to distinguish it from its' former relevance.
His ipad was about as ossum as a possum/"I farted." "Ossum!"/"You are so clever, so hip- may I touch the ossum hem of your garment?"

A common misspelling but the proper pronunciation of the more superfluous awesome. Note the brevity of this version, making it much more appropriate for normal situation. Examine these contrasting examples:
"Forsooth, the divine wonders of the Lord God Almighty on High be verily awesome."

"Dude, that game was ossum."
