Not a whole lot. Pea/Pee seems to be a euphemism for anger (Piss -- where there's a will, there's a way around the Profanity Filter :wink: ).

From a review of the Oxford Dictionary of Slang on Amazon.co.uk:

It's a corker (an excellent person or thing; something that closes a discussion, from the notion of putting a cork in it), a cracker, a whizz, a snozzler (if you're a New Zealander), even a anger-cutter (North American, naturally) or any one of numerous alternatives, all dated, located and explained.


Normally, though, it seems to be a slang term for a flat military cap known as a garrison cap, which has an even more vulgar synonym. :shock: :oops:

UrbanDictionary.com has three definitions.

actually it came out just as I wrote it, pee as in the Letter . I used to hear it a lot as a child, but it might have been one of my aunt's weirdnesses, Like she'd say falsa ketsa for someone who was two-faced [not seeing her own double-visage].

I noticed it was one of the yahoo questions but no one found an answer for it. I just wondered if anyone here had heard it.
