Is the portmanteau being taken too far?
« on: June 11, 2020, 08:47:45 am »
A DIY retailer here in the UK has an advertising campaign revolving around the notion of "housebarrassment" - I'm sorry, but for me this is just taking it too far!

Are there portmanteau's (portmanteaux?) which bug you, as "housebarrassment" does with me?
“Radiate boundless love towards the entire world — above, below, and across — unhindered, without ill will, without enmity.” – The Buddha
