Hissy fit

Posted by James Lally on October 19, 2008 at 22:22

Hissy fit. I have just heard that phrase used for the first time during an episode of A case for Frost on ITV. I wonder if hissy could be derived from the Danish word, hidsig -- which is pronounced Hissy and means hot tempered, to lose ones temper. Any ideas out there?
