Ish

noun; other word formation type Novel creation
Shit or an unfavorable event/outcome. It is a euphemism for shit. Mostly used through metaphor to say that the object are not enjoyable or sought after. This term for shit came about because songs on the radio needed to be edited to reach a larger audience. Instead of placing a beep over the word, disrupting the song, the DJ mixes up the track to produce a new sound at that point of the song that is not the actual curse word. “Ish” is the resultant sound.
 
“Man! Coach won’t let me play in the game this Friday. That is such ish.”
Etymology : a novel creation through sound mixing by DJs to cover up the word “shit” in songs on the radio.
