When someone says something is "awesome," I can generally take it to mean I'm going to hate it. 
I think you're awesome.

Well, awesomely awesome is a double-awesome, which according to Rev's theory, would mean he really IS awesome, and not hated at all. It's kind of like the double-negative thing.

Maybe I messed up grammar-wise, but I meant that he thinks he is so awesome that the level at which he is awesome is awesome in its own right. Therefore both uses of awesome refer to something different.

I swear this makes sense, but in a way that is really hard to put into words.

Maybe a visual aid would help. Perhaps we could someone to write a play and get a group of interpretive dancers to help explain it.

Good idea, but I feel like it would just make things even more complicated. Still it's an awesome idea.   TongueOut

Flick was right about the meaning of "awesomely awesome".

I remember when "awesome" first came into usage in the 1980s as part of Valley Girl lingo (along with the horrible variations like "t-totally awesome") I was sure it would die out as a fad within a couple of years.  Oops. 

Hope I have better luck with the tattoo fad, it seems like I've been waiting for it to die out for a decade.  I think when kids start seeing their moms at the beach with their lower back tattoos stretched out and distorted by their expanding waistlines they will cease to look "awesome" to the coming generation.  Wink

Sadly, if WalMart culture is any indication, this may not happen.

Interesting note about the word awesome:

If I'm not mistaken awesome (at least according to the dictionary) does not necessarily indicate something good. It just means something awe-inspiring or wonder-causing, but people usually use in the same way as saying "cool" or "sweet".  That's not necessarily bad, but I do find it interesting.

I'll admit, I use the word awesome way too much. It's fun to say!

Seriously, if somebody wants to use a word for something huge or awe-inspiring to mean "good," I think it's GREAT.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
