I've heard a phrase in London, it sounded like "It's a big zoozi" or something like that. I wonder what this could mean?

  • @sumelic, it was in an office in a talk between 2 colleagues.

    Why don't you ask them? In American slang in the 1920s it meant a very pretty girl; in modern slang it apparently means lint (see Urban Dictionary). If neither of these make sense, you and we need more context. What were the colleagues discussing? Commented Oct 19, 2015 at 7:24

Apparently, I just misheard it.

Doozy - something that is unusually good, bad, big, severe, etc.
