Or, sophomoric lit! Or, just drop the sopho- ("wise") altogether, but then
you have to add -on- to the end of the remaining root, and you definitely
have to use the -ic adjective-ending. Gosh, I never knew what I was missing
out on by not reading the NYTimes on weekdays.

Hey, I'd recommend they just hire Stephen Glass -- he's good at vivid
made-up anecdotes that have a cultural agenda. And he's not under contract
right now. But then again, why pay him when you can get the readers to send
in material for free?
