Maybe Ruud will join in on this, but I can assure you
beforehand, that it also exists in the Dutch youth speak
with the same meaning ("vet","vet cool" - here mixed with
English word, not very nice).

What more, Hungarian, a non-Indoeuropean language is also
experiencing something similar nowadays. Assuming that
"fett" also applies for what "fat" is in English, then the
Hungarian equivalent ("zsír") is being recently used in this
situation (e.g something being "cool").

Now I am really puzzled which language has begun with this =)
