Frank Rich's NYT column this morning is about gay marriage and related issues. He starts with a riff on American Idol so long that I almost abandoned reading the column. (Sorry, kids, but this trot'em-out-and-put'em-down TV really bugs me.)
I was somewhat surprised (but shouldn't have been) to read that Rolling Stone had described one of the finalists as “flam-bam-boyantly queeny". The adjective was once a pretty common name (as in the pic, from here) but has changed with the times, I guess.
But I was more struck by the infixed bam. We've got the famous cases of "fucking insertion" (outfuckingrageous) and "Homeric infixation" (saxomaphone), but could we be getting a new one? Seems like it's driven here by the rhyme and probably has limited contexts where it would work generally. A quick Google search doesn't reveal any hits even for this form.
