Expression: Sike (the same as I'm kidding)

Sike - the same as I'M KIDDING, or I'M JOKING. It's used when you finish the joke phrase, and then you say sike.
Ex: There was a lion in my house yesterday. Sike.

Wait because tomorrow we have more!

sike is a phonetic mispelling (or perhaps a modern internet spelling) of the word psych, which is also spelled psyche.

Psyche is an interesting word. We say we have to psyche ourselves up for something which may be difficult to do or overcome, such as a test or a challenge like becoming pregnant or facing an opponent in a sports event. defines sike as a samll stream, but I never heard of it being used in conversation. See:

sike. (n.d.). Unabridged (v 1.1). Retrieved February 19, 2008, from website:

The urban dictionary confirmed my initial understanding of the word sike.
It further explains that the preceding sentence is negated by the addition of the word, psyche. This is the same usage that "Not!" was given in popular sitcoms on TV in the 80s(?) (I don`t remember exactly, but I do remember thinking that it was initially jarring to hear the word "not" used like that and I wanted to correct my children when they used it. This was also the era when "my bad" , meaning I made a mistake or error in judgememt, became popular. I had been living in Germany for a few years and totlally missed the whole Fonzie phenomenon. I suffered culture shock upon reentry when even my family members were saying things like "my bad" and "Not!").
