Cheesy \Chees"y\, a. Having the nature, qualities, taste, form, consistency, or appearance of cheese.

Douglas Harper's Etymology Dictionary

"cheese-like," late 14c., from cheese (n.1) + -y (2). Meaning "cheap, inferior" is attested from 1896, perhaps originally U.S. student slang, along with cheese (n.) "an ignorant, stupid person." In late 19c. British slang, cheesy was "fine, showy" (1858), probably from cheese (n.2) and some suggest the modern derogatory use is an "ironic reversal" of this. The word was in common use in medical writing in the late 19c. to describe morbid substances found in tubers, decaying flesh, etc.


a. 1 Of or relating to cheese. 2 Resembling, or containing cheese. 3 (context informal English) overdramatic, excessively emotional or clichéd, trite, contrived. 4 (qualifier: of a smile or grin) exaggerated and likely to be forced or insincere.

  1. adj. of very poor quality [syn: bum, cheap, chintzy, crummy, punk, sleazy, tinny]
