Slang. great; wonderful; terrific.
(slang) terrific; superb

hip-hop slang, “great, excellent,” 1992, originating perhaps in the late 1980s and meaning at first “sexiness in a woman.” The word itself is presumably a variant of fat (q.v.) in one of its slang senses, with the kind of off-beat spelling preferred in street slang (cf. boyz). The spelling is attested as far back as 1678, as an erroneous form of fat (a classical over-correction; see ph). This spelling is said by some to be an acronym, and supposed originals are offered: “pretty hot and tasty,” or “pretty hips and thighs” among them, all unconvincing. These, too may have been innovations given as explanations to women who felt insulted by the word.


The buttocks; fundament; ass: You hear with your patoot, curlylocks/ Talk about a horse’s ptoot

[1960s+; origin unknown; perhaps fr dialect tout, ”buttocks,” fr Middle English, pronounced toot, and altered to conform with sweet patootie by folk etymology]
