The Word "Chokuegambo?"

Well, it seems I learned a new Japanese word today:

The Japanese word "chokuegambo" describes the wish that there were more designer-brand shops on a given street.

Reading this on Cecily's blog made me wonder: what words have Americans created that somehow hint at cultural predispositions?

Nicole mentions "super-size." Would "metrosexual" be another one?

(Note: No, I haven't seen the show and have no intention either).
