Im from the age where neato-keeno was abused a lot. I said that once in front of the grankids and they busted out laughing.
It seems that the youngens need to make up thier own lingo, I would say its a right of passage.

When we happen to watch a movie from the 60's or 70's the grandkids will ask what did he say? Then its my wife and I who has to translate:)
