[Ads-l] "salty"

Why I read ADS-L: 'cause it edumacates me. Wilson discussed "salty" here 
a bit ago, and I heard it from my white male teenager's mouth (and his 
friends') yesterday:

son: <something about a disappointing/frustrating move in a game on his 
iPod Touch.> Salty.

He and his friends seem to be using it more interjectionally? than 
descriptively?
