Btw, I wonder which country this meaning of "Fett/fett/fedt" originates from. Does it come from Germany, Denmark, Sweden or somewhere else? I think it was used in Denmark before it was used in Sweden because I heard it being used by Danish youth long before I heard people starting to use this expression in Sweden. However, I might be wrong. Maybe it's just because I'm not among youth myself that I think so. /Christian Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
