We had a similar question yesterday, in which we learnt that the young put -izzy at the end of words to indicate approval and amusement.Hi all!
When a concert is crazy, ironic and funny, can I say that it is "a fizzy dizzy concert"?
Thank you very much!
Harem scarem? It's an idiomatic expression I didn't know. Thank you very much, boozmyou could but i have never heard it before... people may know what you mean (i would get an idea) but they may be slightly confused
you could say instead that it was 'harem scarem' which means kind of 'all over the place'
In the concert they'll parody famous songs (but without using coarse language or similar!). Just for funWe had a similar question yesterday, in which we learnt that the young put -izzy at the end of words to indicate approval and amusement.
This would be a f??? deal concert, I suspect.

Hi Perdue,Dizzy does not mean deal - it means when one feels unbalanced, and everything is spinning round.
Fizzy is most obviously used to describe carbonated drinks, and doesn't sound right in this context.
I would use the term 'eclectic', which would indicate that the concert covered all types of styles, tastes etc.
If you simply mean that the concert was good fun, you could say it was 'crazy', or better still 'wild', which retains this meaning, and is quite positive.
Hello Perdue,Hi TT,
Firstly, apologies if my earlier post was rude, that was not my intentions.
Whilst I agree that dizzy means more than one thing, I attempted to explain that dizzy was not synonymous with 'deal', and explained what its most common usage was. I am still uncertain that it is the right word to be used in this context, although of course my uncertainty does not mean that it's wrong!
I had not come across fizzy used in the context you provided here - and would still question whether it was a familiar term to most young people, but you're quite right, my contradicting your earlier post was most unfair and I do apologise for this.
You got it!Maybe I'm just being weird here, but I would interpret it as fizzy - effervescent, lively (atmposphere?) and dizzy - crazy, goofy. Not some other words + izzy or izzle.
I just wanted to add my thoughts to this conversation. I hear a lot of the "-izzy" and "-izzle" endings used during my daily life, both on television and by a number of my friends' younger siblings.
If someone told me, "Man, that concert was fizzy dizzy!" I would interpret this as a "f------g dope" concert - meaning that it was really great. Generally (and with thankfully less frequency) they take the first phoneme and add "-izzy" or "-izzle" to create the new word.
