  • Interesting post, Stephen! I just did a search on “jerry-rigged” in GoogleNews and got 47 hits — most of them from sources you would expect to be edited: newspapers, TV news sites, and even CNN and the New Republic. All American sources, as far as I can see. Merriam Webster 11th says, of “jerry-rigged”: “1959, probably a blend of jerry-built and jury-rigged.”
