    Did you try Wikipedia? I've never heard of this expression before. What does it mean? – Mari-Lou A Nov 20 '14 at 19:33

I hesitate to call this an expression when it only gets 22 hits on Google. Apparently it was said on an episode of Big Brother Canada 2, but it’s by no means a set phrase in the vernacular. It’s an ad-hoc formation that combines two elements:

  1. “pissy pants” – a somewhat redundant though nicely alliterative extension of “pissy” (AmE slang) meaning “foul tempered; like a baby; whiny”

  2. “McGee” – a generic sort of placeholder name with the primary function of being recognizable as a given name, as distinct from regular name-calling presumably in an attempt to lengthen and lend mock formality for humor
