Send us your malamanteau suggestions

Malamanteaus are hard to think up, so help us come up with some good ones and we'll help keep the word alive. The wikipedia community is convinced this neologism isn't going to last, so let's prove them wrong. Check out our facebook or hit us up on twitter! Remember, a malamanteau is the combination of a malapropism (similar sounding word) and a portmanteau (a combination of two words)

Malamanteau: Absatively

- Definition: A car crash between absolutely and positively
- Portmanteau: absolutely + positively
- Malapropism*: absolutely, positively

Source: XKCD Wiki / Neil Gaiman's Anansi Boys

* Note: Unless this portmanteau is used incorrectly towards it's listed malapropisms, it would not qualify as a malamanteau.
