Where does shlitty come from?

The origins of shlitty are not entirely clear. An Urban Dictionary entry for the term in 2004 presented shlitty as a kind of extreme form of shitty … whether in the bathroom or not. The inserted L lends a kind of messiness to it all, doesn’t it. (Sorry. Gross.)

By at least 2010, people were using shlitty to mean “getting intoxicated.” This shlitty would appear to be a blend of shitty (related tp shitfaced, or “drunk”) and litty, slang for “drunk, high; excellent” (from lit). Litty emerges as slang around the same time.

Shlitty got a boost in May 2019 when Twitter user @mewtailv2 posted her sociology professor’s (at times hilariously out-of-touch) record of the slang terms and definitions used by his students. Among the terms on shown on his list was shlitty, which the professor defined as “a good time.”

Like litty, anything “great” or “cool” can be described as shlitty by extension.

Who uses shlitty?

Shlitty may be considered mildly vulgar, as it’s related to shitty. It’s very informal and associated with youth slang.

Shlitty is still occasionally used to describe when things are particularly … crappy. This may be as a euphemism for shitty.

More often than not, though, shlitty is used in relationship to drinking. This can refer to getting “wasted,” meant positively by users. Typically, it’s used in the phrase getting shlitty,” like getting drunk.

Shlitty can also generally refer to something that’s a good time or fun more generally.
