super-duper

I can't remember why I was thinking about this phrase in the first place, but I started wondering how it originated. I used the search function which yeilded no results. Here's what I came up with from the top of my head: It is so super that I'm duped. That's why it is called a super duper ? ? ?

brill and wood

Thanks, guys. I should have known that "brill" was a short form of "brilliant." Maybe I'm not so brill after all. I forgot to mention another adjective I came across in the same forum, in a different post. The word is "skill" used in the same manner as "brill." "Way skill!" I don't guess this type o...
