  • A nonsense word created by an ad executive at Budweiser. It was used in a Budweiser product commercial, as "dilly dilly!" The creator agrees, though, that there is no actual meaning to the word, that it is simply a nonsense word.

    *Note the other definition here, which is incorrect, and is confusing the slang word "dealio" from many decades ago with a combination of this nonsense word and the modern slang word "yo." Please don't make the same mistake.
