hahaha, my mom used it a few weeks ago. She is an immigrant from Croatia, and hearing it from her was really funny, especially with her accent.
She called me a lousy skiier (I am a ski instructor and definitely not a lousy skiier, but it cracked me up!)
Sure we use it in the United States, but not very often, so when people use the word it's kind of memorable. It kind of indicates that you might have a good vocabulary
