sheeple: (sheep'-el) (n) a portmanteau word combining "sheep" and "people" to indicate a mindless mob that accepts the party line without question. I'd like to give a big shout-out to my boy, Ken Robinson, for turning me on to whatreallyhappened, where I first encountered my new favorite word, which, from the look of things, has been around since at least (and fittingly) 1984. (Where was I? Oh, yeah. In advertising. Talk about irony...)
Happy Inauguration Day, everyone!
