Clearly none of you follow Xeni's posts on BoingBoing, or you'd be, ahem, intimately familiar with the world of teledildonics. Yes, thats right, internet-enabled sex toys. Whoever said you can't get laid over the web?

My friend came up with a couple of crackers. "Combinate" - combine and create. But his best one has to be "Procrastibation" - the act of delaying masturbation so it's ultimately better in the long run.

I misread that as 'Probcrabstibation', which I guess would be the act of delaying masturbation because crabs keep biting your hand?

Change it to 'Probcrabstipation' and it becomes one's inability to defecate due to the fact that one is being probed by a crab.

wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portmanteau says we're doing it rong, and we actually mean blends, but that's a little too pedantic, although it conjures "will it blend" scenarios,

I told somebody yesterday to "stop procrasturbating and go make me a portmanteau!" Fortunately he got the linguistic joke, and we shared a chuckle. Then we patted each other on the back and did manly things.

So, there you go, procrasturbation has now entered the common lexicon. I believe the two differing accounts of what it means will rage long after history has forgotten us.

Goddamn I love this topic. Felstaff my friend, you are a genius.

I'm surprised nobody's mentioned "freegan". People who can afford to buy food, but eat out of the garbage in order to reduce society's consumption levels.

Wikipedia wrote:Freeganism is an anti-consumerism lifestyle whereby people employ alternative living strategies based on "limited participation in the conventional economy and minimal consumption of resources. Freegans embrace community, generosity, social concern, freedom, cooperation, and sharing in opposition to a society based on materialism, moral apathy, competition, conformity, and greed."[1] The lifestyle involves salvaging discarded, unspoiled food from supermarket dumpsters that have passed their sell by date, but are still edible and nutritious. They salvage the food not because they are poor or homeless, but as a political statement

I was sycofantasising/sycophantasising earlier, thinking about the cause and effect of pandering to the ego of my superiors.

Sycophantasy: "Maybe if I comment on my [superior]'s [item of clothing] he/she may give me a raise."
Implementation: "Hey boss, that tie makes you look like Yogi Bear. Have you tried not wearing anything else but the tie?"
Effect: "Clear out your desk."
"I don't have a desk."
"Well, put your stuff in Sue from accounting's desk, and then clear it out. You're fired."

What is tween even a combination of?
It really pisses me off that people use that word to describe rotten scumbag spoiled brat snotty smelly annoying obnoxious preteens. Everyone knows that Tolkien invented the word to describe hobbits in their twenties, as they acted like human teenagers. If they aren't even allowed to say hobbit in Dungeons and Dragons, why the crap can people get away with saying tween? At least in D&D, they use the right meaning of the word they stole*!

Note: I know they never actually used the word hobbit, but can any true gamer honestly say he has never referred to a halfling as a hobbit?

Edit: I guess you guys can probably fathom my feelings for that particular age group. That's when kids think that they're old enough to actually be cool, but they aren't. At all.
Then you turn 14 and realize that you aren't cool. That's when stuff starts to get fun =D

Tween; a redundant word comprised of 'teen' and 'between', i.e. a teenager, who is between the ages of 13-19. Tautological, clearly, and completely unnecessary. It was unfairly stolen off Tolkien and used nefariously by the meeja as a new buzzword for the Bratz generation, most probably because it sounds like 'twee' and is a more kitsch word than 'teen', which has collected up a fair few connotations--like a dirty snowball--since its inception in the 1950s.

It's a good thing parthenos used a coughing parenthesis there, otherwise my hackles would've been awoken from their apathetic slumber. Alas, I'll have to save my fist-raising-and-subsequent-shaking for something that stirs me more than the idiotic word tween.

Maybe celébutante.

The popular usage of tween though isn't synonymous with teen; it means preteens around 8-13.

And Tolkien used the word to describe people older than teenagers - Hobbits out of their teens but younger than 33, the Hobbit age of majority. One of Pippen and Merry, or perhaps both, were mentioned to have been tweens at one point, although I don't remember if that was at the time of Bilbo's birthday party or when they actually began the quest of the ring.

As for portmanteaux, the anime I am watching right now is called "Tsuyokiss", which I assume is a portmanteaux of Japanese "tsuyoku" and English "kiss". It seems plausible, anyway.

I had an occasional supply teacher at my high school, who would call us "tweens" in one particular year because (he said) it was a combination of twelve and thirteen. He didn't want to call us teens, because some of us weren't, and didn't want to say kids, for the same reason. Therefore...

Random suffixes...I think that's kinda portmanteau...ing isn't it? Whether it is or not, it's one of the biggest annoyances that marketing teams can come up with, for instance: adding "-licious" onto the end of anything. The most despicable one I've seen is "doggylicious" I think...eurrghh :shock:
