Kip's List of Portmanteaus

portĀ·manĀ·teau noun
A word formed by merging the sounds and meanings of two different words.

I have a minor love of portamteaus. Every so often I come up with my own blending of words that I think are at least a little clever. I figured I've thought up enough by now that I should at least stick them onto my blog for posterity. So here they are.
