I like the "bonus word" you gave us - buycon. I'm assuming that's a capitalist icon? - bigdog, 2007-06-19: 16:08:00

Let's hear one for the borgs. - texmom, 2007-06-19: 17:29:00

Not sure that buycon is original, but it popped into my mind when I was thinking about all those toys I felt I had to buy for my son years ago. Yep, it's a capitalist icon. - purpleartichokes, 2007-06-19: 18:00:00

Americanidolater

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: am erik an eye doll a ter

Sentence: 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)
