more portmanteaux

  • i found an explanation of the word fortnight: it's a portmanteau of fourteen and night.
  • a goon is a cross between a gorilla and a baboon. that is pretty much little bunny foo foo's favorite animal.
    hmmm....wikipedia does not validate this...though there are many other fun definitions of the word goon. i am tempted to add one more.
  • so, I don't believe all of these portmanteaux, but there's lots more fun words on this site
