Regional dialogue strikes again!

In the South, you'll hear 'doozy' in terms of things like...

"Watch that first step, it's a doozy!" or "That tornado was a doozy and tore everything up!"

...so it has a negative connotation for me, as in a lot to handle if it's a person or something that does or has the potential to hurt people or things.

I'm going to try to see it from your perspective and see if that changes things. :)
