Sentence: Jimmy and Jenny met at a 'X-Men' conference in New York last year. What they love most about their cultasy are the costumes and the chants recited three times a day in hopes that they will come in contact with the natural earth bound x-rays which will transform them like their heros.

Americanidolater: /am erik an eye doll a ter/ It starts with auditions in several cities each season. The best and the worst are shown and voted through by a panel of esteemed judges to the next tier of competition. Eventually everyone in North America gets hooked and calls to vote for their favorites. Hitherto unknowns are all of a sudden the talk around water coolers each morning and each member of the general public will become an americanidolater. Millions of votes are cast each week until a winner is chosen. Sadly, not that many people vote in elections. Of course if the people running for office were as honest as Simon or as talented as the unknowns on stage, maybe election participation would improve greatly... Etymology: American Idol (Pop Culture tv series where nobody's can audition their sining talents for judges and win big money & recording contracts and become overnight sensations) & Idolater (a devoted worshipper and admirer of idols) Created by: Nosila.

Iconolize: /i-con-o-lize/ Some celebrities, musical stars and sports figures have been so iconolized in the press that they can be girlfriend beaters, wife cheaters, drug abusive, self-indulgent idiots and still command the love and admiration of millions of followers who have no idea what a real hero is.

Lennonite this is a fab word, I am suprised there wasn't a mass cult dedicated to Lennon anyway. - sanssouci, 2010-01-13: 18:50:00

Today's definition was inspired by Robert J. Sawyer. One of the neat things about Rob's writing is that he likes to ask questions about the big issues -- like religion and ethics -- while he peppers his stories with pop culture references. And one of his favorite pop icons is Star Trek! Rob we love you! And we celebrate Star Trek in your honor! Not that we're getting religious about it or anything... Thanks! ~ James
