Themhattan (them + Manhattan)

"Themhattan” (them + Manhattan) is a jocular name to get the “man” out of the borough of “Manhattan.”

“I am offended by this. It should clearly by Theyhattan or Themhattan” was posted on Twitter by “Hunt and Snare” on May 7, 2017. “breaking news: the borough of manhattan announced it will now be named they/themhattan” was posted on Twitter by Merm Aids on December 18, 2017. “In 2019 we’re calling it Themhattan” was posted on Twitter by leeeela on January 1, 2019. “In the future. Manhattan to be renamed Themhattan” was posted on Twitter by Gus on July 19, 2019.

“Theyhattan” (they + Manhattan) is a similar term.


Wikipedia: Manhattan
Manhattan (/mænˈhætən, mən-/), known regionally as The City, is the most densely populated and geographically smallest of the five boroughs of New York City. It is the urban core of the New York metropolitan area, and coextensive with New York County, one of the original counties of the U.S. state of New York. Manhattan serves as the city’s economic and administrative center, cultural identifier, and historical birthplace. The borough consists mostly of Manhattan Island, bounded by the Hudson, East, and Harlem rivers along with several small adjacent islands, including Roosevelt, U Thant, and Randalls and Wards Islands.

Etymology
The name Manhattan derives from the Munsee Lenape language term manaháhtaan (where manah- means “gather”, -aht- means “bow”, and -aan is an abstract element used to form verb stems). The Lenape word has been translated as “the place where we get bows” or “place for gathering the (wood to make) bows”.

MADE IN THEMHATTAN
Another absurd brain explosion has struck the over-zealous, gender-neutral, politically-correct “pundits”, who are, apparently, multi-taskers with far too much spare time on their hands.  Simultaneously, they waste energy, jump up and down, brandish posters, flap their gums, and wave their arms in the air.

Manhattan, as shown in the above title will disappear; ferried across to Staten Island.
