> huh, and what's the meaning of "Fett" in contemporary youth speak??

"Fett" nowadays seems to be used synonym to "huge". For example, you can 
be asked to give a "fetten Applaus" these days. Although, if something 
is "fett krass" -- often abbreaviated as "fett!" -- that means "very 
cool", or, depending on the context, "very shocking".

Back in the days we would have said "geil" instead (which was 
climaxed rather creative, i.e. geil, affengeil, turboaffengeil -- only 
uninspired people used "voll geil" :)

Oh, and the even older crowd might have used "(total) dufte"...
