Name America’s New Hoovervilles!

Yup, shantytowns are all the rage across the country, since “losers” don’t like paying their own mortgages (right, Santelli?).

But what shall we name them? Unlike Hoovervilles, we have a much more…erm, connotate-able name we’re dealing with. We can’t, for example, very well go around complaining about the “Bush Village” around the corner, or we’ll risk sounding like we’re complaining about an apartment complex for singles. So, what then? “Bush-ville” is too derivative; “Bush-field” too agricultural.
