We are our own political party, tentatively entitled "The Don't Know Nothin's". Our party animal has a lampshade over its head so we're not quite sure what it is.

What's more, Chongo hasn't been around Campaign Headquarters AT ALL. There's strong suspicion that he's lying drunk in the gutter again.

LOL! Possibly.

Why do you assume that his unnatural life will ever end, Rapaire? If his unnaturalness is deeply seated in his Being, it may travel with him from lifetime to lifetime, quirking and quarking countless identities down the future span of history yet to be made.

Sorry, LH. You made up the word but you didn't copyright it. I took that step and passed the copyright to Amos, who I felt best represented the word. Should you use it anywhere on this planet (i.e., Earth) or anywhere in the Milky Way galaxy (and the Magellan sub-galaxies) without paying royalties to Amos you can be sent to the Plutonium Pits of the Prison Planet Peritaxeles for the rest of your unnatural life.

As I already said, sir, I use words from the respected commons of English, the linguistic high road where the words are widely known (by those who care for such things) and recognized.

So I do not need a made up word. However this is no loss to your proposition as I have already given freely to your collection multiple times, gems of semantic treasure which you have been glad to receive, and I have been glad to freely give. That's the way civilized wordsmiths work.

Rapaire, you can't give my word away to Amos. It's just not allowed. I would have to negotiate with Amos for a trade of some sort...a share of ownership wherein I get 50% rights to one of his words in return for allowing him to use blathertwaddle.

Since Amos is already a master of blathertwaddle, I see no harm in making such an agreement.

As for my sperm count, it may be low. I'm not sure. All I know is, I have not produced any progeny thus far (despite engaging in certain, ahem!, activities with various females over the years)...and I do not intend to if I can possibly avoid it! That being the case, I think having a low sperm count might not be such a bad thing after all.

Life is just an endless sorrow
When you have
A flat wheelbarrow
Tribulations
Never cease
Pump it up,
And give it grease.
Then your garden
Hoe and harrow
With a trusty
True wheel barrow
That is where
The good life's at
Not bemoaning
A barrow flat!

It's your word, Amos. Your very own word. You created it so you can define it however you like. You can even carve little birds and bunches of grapes on it, install stained glass windows, or write graffiti all over the walls. You can tack up pinups or shoot a patriotic "VR" in a wall in bullet pocks. You can impale your correspondence to the mantel with your penknife and make atrocious stinks on a chemical-stained deal table. It's your word -- enjoy it.

Portmanteau words mash together the sounds and meanings of two other words, or as Humpty Dumpty tells Alice in "Through the Looking-Glass," they pack two meanings into one word (portmanteau = suitcase or valise). Some portmanteau words paint vivid mental pictures, such as Lewis Carroll's slithy toves who are lithe and slimy at the same time. Others just describe things, such as smog (a blend of smoke and fog), infomercial (a lengthy commercial chock-full of product information), and Reaganomics (the Reagan-era, trickle-down economic policy).

I considered whether Blathertwaddle is a portmanteau word (before I got to your discussion of it, BTW) and discarded it. A true portmanteau word is a little more subtle.

Worthington Bank, for example. It is a bank that has offices in Fort Worth and Arlington. Worth-ington. It has nothing to do with the Worthington Hotel in downtown Fort Worth, and I don't know if that is a name or a portmanteau. Anyway, I don't think you can just stick to words together for a portmanteau, you have to lop a little off surgically and still have a pronounceable something left over.
