Fred "Kooky" Burns, in the song "Kooky, Kooky, Lend Me Your Comb"
[sp. and exact title?], at one point says, "Baby, you're the
ginchiest." 1950s, I think. Suppose this is where it came from?

I grew up close to Vermont and heard only [chin si]. However, in the
'70's, a guy from inner-beltway D.C. in college with me used "ginchy"
to mean something really neat/cool/catchy, but a bit quirky, as
opposed to far-out, as awesome might have been said in 1972.
