The hegemonic Vegematic

Last night, just for fun, I read to my husband a paragraph of academic writing dense with jargon but oddly bereft of substance. He interrupted me when he heard "hegemonic."


"No, hegemonic."

"Would it make any difference if you substituted Vegematic for hegemonic?"

"Not much," I said, "but the folks down at Ronco might complain."

I dare you to throw a lower-case vegematic into a scholarly article to see if anyone notices.
