Stoozing and compers might be common MSE parlance but I haven't encountered them anywhere else and I see and hear plenty of all the media as an educated retired person. Bazinga like many other 5 minute wonder words might be seen by millions on T shirts or when used by a few characters on TV etc but again I've seen no examples coming into actual use by any generation, young or old. Some lexicographers seem to be desperate to play down their image and seem cool but really none of those words are in genuine common linguistic usage.
