Anyone or anything currently considered exceptionally exciting or proficient. This slangy usage dates from the late 1800s and has been applied to just about anything—a popular television show or book, an athlete or athletic feat, a painting, and so on.

The spicy saga revolves around rival claims by Hot Stuff Foods and Homer Simpsonendorsed competitor Domino's.
Hot Stuff Foods claims that it registered the 'Hot Stuff Pizza' trade mark 11 years ago and that the item can be purchased from its 14 franchised outlets across the UK, nine of which are in the West Midlands.
However, for the past two months Domino's has been marketing - much to the annoyance of its rival - its own Hot Stuff Pizza.
Hot Stuff Foods, which has asked the fast food giant to withdraw the promotion, citing intellectual property rights, has now appointed UK law firm Addleshaw Goddard to act for it in the dispute.
Head of intellectual property at Addleshaw Goddard, Richard Kempner said: "We first acted for Hot Stuff Foods over ten years ago when we obtained a community-wide trade mark registration for our clients, and are now defending that trade mark for them against a major player in the fast food industry.
"This case is not solely about protecting the trade mark for Hot Stuff Pizza - it also impacts on both consumers and our clients' franchisees working hard to develop their businesses in outlets across the UK."
"Our clients are rightly very worried that their customers will be fooled into believing that their 'Hot Stuff Pizza' pizza is now available from Domino's, which it isn't and couldn't be.
