Although slightly less offensive than Santorum’s unwelcome slang meaning, Mitt Romney will be furious to learn that according to spreadingromney.com, a website that now ranks among the top search results on Google for “Romney,” the candidate’s last name is a verb that means, “To defecate in terror.” The link for terror, as it does on spreadingromney.com, directs to a story on the Huffington Post about how Romney’s dog suffered that humiliation when Mitt reportedly strapped his Irish setter to the roof of his car in 1983 en route to Canada.
But it could be worse — Santorum came to be “defined” in the same manner. It means, “the frothy mixture of lube and fecal matter that is sometimes the byproduct of anal sex.”
A domain name search indicates that spreadingromney.com is registered by Go Daddy to Ayokay, LLC. Ayokay is an Indiana-registered LLC created on the first of this year, and according to its own website is a web design and development company. At a glance, it doesn’t appear connected to any other campaign.
We pray to never, ever find out the meaning of “Spreading Gingrich,” but apparently that’s a foregone conclusion.
