As you read these words, you will instantly think of the people you know that fit them. We all know one or two people who fit each of these words, or maybe one or two fit you. If you have ever been in a work training class then you know that an askhole does in fact exist, and yes they make every second of that training class seem like torture. Really people, stop with the pointless questions and let everyone get on with their lives! Okay, so getting back on track, these words are all portmanteaus. This is when you take two words and mash the meaning and the sound together to get a new one. An example would be the word brunch, breakfast + lunch = brunch. The urban dictionary is full of these new words. They are pretty clever, take a look.

How many of those words were you able to associate with someone you know, whether it’s a co-worker, significant other, or friend? I say with at least half of them, someone instantly came to mind. Do you think you will incorporate any of these words into your vocabulary? Even if I don’t incorporate them into my vocabulary, I know that they will come to mind when the situation is fitting.
