Cirque Du Soleil may be taking the high road with their spelling (zumanity) of this metaplastic word but anyone who has attended a rock festival, visited a major theme park or participated in any gathering of people larger than a family picnic should understand why there is more zoo than human in our spelling. Proper usage: "From the main stage at Lollapalooza the roiling sea of zoomanity stretching to the horizon seemed to have spontaneously emerged from the primordial ooze of the mud pit."
