    Yo utilizo este término a menudo como slang. Por ejemplo en referencia a una comadrona que tuve en el hospital que nunca ofrecía ayuda concreta sino comentarios como *oh well she is only little, and I understand, that's babies isn't it". She seemed to be too emotionally empathetic but no help at all. I'd say stupid in an emotional way, if that makes any sense.

    A bit like cheesy, I guess, one of those things people use but are not exactly proper English. (cheesy como cursi)

    Thumbs up Oh that's funny... I like English "english"

    Now what about the rest of the English slang from Europe... ?

    Can anyone else drop a list of them? That'd be nice to know.

    It´s not a reference to illegal substances? "Didn´t know you liked to get wet."

    I've heard "Wet" used very differently in N. Jersey, where I grew up. "Wet" was used expressing something you really liked. i.e. "That whip is Wet".

    Wet is sometimes used in slang as something really cool or tight.

    That ride is wet.

    Wet is also slang for a mixture of PCP (Phencyclidine)which is a horse tranquilizer, and embalming fluid (fermaldahide). The psychosis inducing liquid is used to dip cigarettes, blunts, or marijuana joints creating vivid hallucinations for its user.
