: What the origin of this?

: I ask because in a recent conversation with a finnish girl I lernt that the phrase for "Cheers" in Finnish sounds very much like git-pissed and was wondering if this is a possible root of this phrase?

Not likely. The Finns share a language that is spoken by only 5 million people on the planet, and its impact on the rest of the world's languages is, well, zero.
