Top Definition
A derogatory term used to describe the lowest common denominator of American society. It implies stupidity, laziness, ignorance, backwardness and/or entitlement attitude.

Originally, this term was coined by a professor at UMASS Amherst and used during a lecture to describe the shock students would receive when they went out into the real world and experienced the abundance of stupidity.

Although it mainly is used as a noun which describes a segment of the population, it has since evolved to also describe places or situations. It is usually reserved for stupidity, ignorance, etc. that is noteworthy or extreme. It is generally not used in hyperbole.
