Combo words are to me are what huge fake tits are to Pamela Anderson

9 03 2010

That’s right. We go together like silicone and bleach blonde tramps.

There are few things in this life I enjoy as thoroughly as a good combo word.

If you want to class it up (and as usual, I don’t) you can refer to combo words by their text-book name, portmanteau.

Combo words and I began our love affair a year or so ago when I watched an episode of Tyra about….you guessed it…sexting!

Sexting is the act of sending sexually explicit messages or photos electronically, primarily between mobile phones.

I just could not believe my amusement at this beautifully constructed, hilariously propagandist gem of language.

I spent the next several weeks cramming the word sexting into as many conversations as possible.

(honestly, I cannot begin to understand why people who have a choice decide to subject themselves to me)

I then graduated to attempting to create my own combo words at every opportunity.

(seriously, my friends deserve medals)

I have mostly failed at this endeavor, but a few of my attempts have managed to stick into my personal loser language, such as my favorite, fundane.

My friend and I tend to spend a lot of time doing things that would be considered mundane. But, when we do them together, we always have fun. And that makes it FUNDANE!

(seriously…..medals)

A few of my favorite combo words:

Male nurse?

Murse! (also man purse!)

Hip gay asian?

Gaysian!

Too poor for a vacation, so you’re going to stay home and fake one?

Staycation!

Tell me your favorite combo words! (Or why you hate them.)
