    Maybe your questioner was contemplating euthanasia of somebody, “youth in Asia” being a phonetic version. If so, then “crime in Italy” is probably in the same category, though even when I say it out loud it doesn’t sound to me like anything except “crime in Italy.”

  2. Rex Fouch:

    “Criminitly!” or “criminitlies!” (the first i is long, penult accented) was often used as an expression of wonder or exasperation on our elementary school play grounds. In fact, I heard this form for years before I heard the term “criminy.”

    Holy Moses. Dang!

    Pompous remark
    Followed by some witty banter with a dryer than burnt crumpets English style “humor”
    (In an English accent using prentiously large words to establish intellectual superiority)
