Toby Keith’s “Amerigasm”: The Word Is Getting Round

Oct 24th, 2006 // Comment

keithguitar.jpgYesterday, we put out a call to arms directed at our fellow writers: Now that Toby Keith seems to be OK with using the Jalopnik-coined word Amerigasm to describe his more stridently patriotic work, shouldn’t the world of music writers follow suit? We’re happy to report that Whitney Pastorek of Entertainment Weekly has risen to our challenge, dropping the term and its sister word, “patri-erotic,” into her round-up of Fox’s crappy World Series coverage:

(Perhaps the one bright spot in Mellencamp’s patri-erotic ubiquity? We have yet to see a Toby Keith Amerigasm Ford commercial.)

We are so proud. Whitney–thank you so much. And to everyone else: Let this be the beginning of “Amerigasm” spreading far and wide throughout our great, patri-erotic nation. (See how we did that? Smooth, no?)

Fox needs your help with its World Series coverage [PopWatch]
