Are we a nation of booboisie?

Let me know the answer to that.

Don't wanna be an American idiot.
One nation controlled by the media.
Information nation of hysteria.
It's going out to idiot America.

-- lyrics from Green Day's "American Idiot"

Booboisie is a blend of boob and bourgeoisie. It was coined by H. L. Mencken (1880-1956), American editor and critic.

Stumble It!
