  • very amusing, Bilby! But in fact, I see it as my sworn duty to speak against Dr Moreau-like experimentation on words that are best left in their natural habitat. (And please do not refer to such hybrid beasts as mormanteaux!)

  • Clever, Q. You're saying that today you had a stupiphany about this. It took me a moment to "see what you were doing there" (as the cliche goes). But although I think this is actually a pretty good portmanteau (not only momentarily amusing but also smart, clear, and transferable), I am so sick of the recent portmanteau mania, that I have declared a Moratorium on Portmanteaux (which must never under any circumstances be referred to as a "portmantorium"!).

  • I read this on Wordnik yesterday, and didn't understand what oroboros had taken so long to tumble to. Wished oroboros had included a definition. Looked at it today . . .
