[pullquote quote="I lived in one for a couple of years... It was a real nice, gated trailer park with a pool." credit="Toby Keith"]When historians look back at the early 2000′s they’ll see that musical “mash-ups” were all the rage, with DJ’s mashing two songs together to come up with an unique piece that’s greater than the sum of its parts. Thanks to [lastfm]Toby Keith[/lastfm] (plus Stephen Colbert and a certain recent Vice Presidential hopeful), historians looking back at the early 2010′s will see that word mash-ups were all the rage. Like “truthiness” and “refudiate” before it, “trailerhood” is the newest addition to the English language. We hardly even need to ask, “what is a trailerhood?” since it’s the perfect mash-up of “trailer” and “neighborhood.” Read on to find out how Keith came up with the word, also the title of one of his new songs, and find out more about his new album Bullets In The Gun.

And one of the guys said, 'The old trailerhood, huh?'" credit=""]Here’s the real story on how the world “trailerhood” came about (taken from [lastfm]Toby Keith[/lastfm]‘s interview with Amazon.com): “I was riding my motorcycle and had a couple of dudes with me. We were in an old neighborhood out in the country where I used to live. And there’s a trailer park out there. Somebody said, “Hey, let’s go eat.” We’re starting to turn around and I realize they’ve put railroad tracks in and blocked the street I wanted to take. So I was going to say, “Let’s go in the trailer park” or, “Let’s go in this neighborhood and turn around.” But instead I said, “Let’s go in this trailerhood.” And one of the guys said, “The old trailerhood, huh?”
