Hipness Inquiry...

I'm just wondering.
Can I still get away with using the word
to describe physical attractiveness?
As in: "That cheeseburger is fly!"

"Cheeseburger", in this case, is a pretty girl.
I picked that one up from Theo Huxtable.

So, is "fly" still acceptable?
If not, what should I be using?

"That cheeseburger is fly!"

Well, that certainly explains the E. Coli break out at that restaurant.

No. The only acceptable description of a cheeseburger is "awesome."

As in "Look at that cheeseburger – awesome!"

It's a variant of the fact that the only way to refer to new Chinese suits is "bad."

Don't ask me. I was just told that 'groovy' isn't really that keen anymore.

It has changed from "fly" to "walking stick". Use that and let me know how it works out, OK?

"Fly" is still acceptable.

Peace out, bitchin' cats.

I like "The Bee's Knees" or "The Cat's Ass"

"Fly" is still acceptable in Michigan (UP and LP), Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Wyoming, and parts of Oregon.

Man, I'm so behind the times I am not even aware of slang that is already on the outs.

Fly is alright, but rad is way better
