Fanchise

Created by: Filthy

Pronunciation:

Sentence: Lloyd should have known that the Toxic Avenger had reached fanchise status when Troma fans errected a statue of Toxie in Lloyd's front yard and began a re-enactment of the final scene to the first film, complete with cascading intestines.

Etymology: There is disagreement on the origins of this word. Basically an altered spelling of 'franchise,' the term 'fanchise' may have it's other roots in either 'fan' (an ardent admirer or enthusiast) or the more extreme 'fanatic' (excessive enthusiasm and often intense uncritical devotion). Most scholars have settled on the latter, citing the common conflation of religious fervor and fanaticism in American culture.
