It was being used by spritzhead girls well before Clueless ever came out. There was a girl in 5th grade (1991) we'd occasionally tease for constantly using it. Maybe you folks are finally catching up 20 years later :smug:

I seem to remember 'awesome' showing up around that time as well, coming from things like Bill & Ted's, Wayne's World and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Hipsters have brought it back with a vengeance lately. I blame 'epic' on hipsters who ironically enjoy metal, while not actually knowing a thing about it.
