Similar to tract housing, Bedroom Community, and suburb. A suburb for whom any possibility of individual character or personality has been rampantly homogonized by unregulated commercialism; as the 'Mc' prefix would denote. Residential "units" are within 3 ft. of eachother. Retail strip centers lack independent businesses of any kind, primarily big box, high volume stores. Cultural enrichment opportunities such as venues for the performing arts and museums are nowhere to be found as they are not as monetarily profitable of use of the land they occupy as retail or residential would be.
We must be in a McBurb, honey. Haven't seen an independently owned retailer for miles, and everything looks the same.

A trivial, ephemeral fact; yet just as accurate. Not to be confused with factoid, which denotes less than accurate.
After a little research, it turns out that Jim's little factoid the other night was actually a factlet. (This will change how people think about President Taft).

A brass wind instrument that can be best be described as the marriage of the French Horn and Euphonium. It produces a sound so lofty and aristocratic, that it sounds quantifiably holier that its counterparts in the brass wind instrument family.

For the true effect of this instrument to be unfurled to the audience in full regalia, the player is recommended to periodically dart a derisive sidelong glare with arched eyebrow at the other non-sanctiphoniums in the orchestra to achieve the desired effect.
One by one, after only 3 minutes into the Bach piece, all of the players in the chamber ensemble save for the lone Sanctiphonium got up in a huff and left in mid movement, leaving the lone woodwind to wallow happily in it's own self-satisfaction.

To take anything of Mexican culture (food, music, art, etc.), and water it down to appeal to a caucasian American customer base.
Why must this brand of picante sauce have to gringify their formula beyond recognition? A salad would be tastier.

This mariachi group is so gringified, even blue hair's are buying their CD's.

And last but not least, "Nachos, Flanders style!" (cucumbers with cottage cheese)

Ever since Father O'Malley was caught butting that butt into that young choirboy's butt, he has become the butt of many butt cruel jokes.

A prefix placed in front of a noun to connote an inherent attribute of either malaise, homogenization, gratuitous commercialism, mediocrity, or any combination thereof. In other words, add Mc to any noun to give it a tincture of everything the McDonalds empire has given to (or taken away from) the landscape of American culture.
