I’m upset that neither portmanteau.com nor port-manteau.com is available as a domain for my blog. If you didn’t have the courage to click the links, portmanteau.com times out, and port-manteau.com sells earrings. Earrings?! What has that got to do with the word “portmanteau”? At least my use of it plays on the word “port” as if “Port Manteau” were some magical island cove, and the splitting of “port” and “manteau” is exactly the opposite of what a portmanteau is. Can you think of any other domain name delimiters that I could use to separate the words “port” and “manteau”?
I hope these sites appreciate whatever extra traffic I’m giving them by linking!
