My name is Bean and this is my blog. Hence the name. If you have comments or questions, just leave them in the comments area.

My friend John uses the word "contanister." He claims it's a cross between a container and a canister - which are pretty close to the same thing. I claim he thought it was a word and is now using the whole combination-of-words thing as a cover-up.

Anyway, we got to talking last night and it turns out that when you combine two words that have very similar meanings to create a third word, also with the same meaning, the results are [1] understandable (everyone will know what you mean) and [2] funny (everyone will think it is atleast a little bit funny).

For example, when we were discussing this subject last night and laughing about all of the contanisters John has in his house, I came up with:

Disaster + catastrophe = Disastrophe

Funny, eh? Now you try!

this has nothing to do with your current post, but i wanted to share since we have a common blog topic now. check out my latest post about my lawn, and the condition of my lawn. and the sadness that i have felt for so long... about my lawn. this, of course, is similar to your post on the 19th about your lawn. i feel your pain.

supersize + enormous + gigantic=ginormousize

i used this once at mcdonalds b/c i forgot what they called "supersize". The lady taking my order in the drive-thru knew what i meant. so, your theory checks out.
Bean (September 26, 2005 at 01:31:38 PM):

My g-ma invented the word Tubblerware to describe a Tupperware tub.
bigD (September 26, 2005 at 02:55:33 PM):
my g-ma invented the word walmark to describe wal-mart.
corbin (September 26, 2005 at 04:21:53 PM):
don't forget receipt to describe recipes, or vice versa.

my great-grandma has a friend whose last name is spelled something like harjue (pronounced har-jew with a soft j), and my g-g-ma pronounces it hazar (yes, that's hay-zar)
bigD (September 26, 2005 at 04:45:43 PM):
good call, my g-ma asslow says pronounces hawaii as:


I try to say it that way, because I like the sound of it.

Same with Illinoise, because there's so many people that say it that way and it always makes me laugh to hear it.

this is jim, i'll start using a more recognizeable name.
m3 (September 26, 2005 at 08:09:08 PM):
trach + traffic jam = trachic jam
Jewfish (September 27, 2005 at 12:06:14 AM):
Try it just with Kubicek's and/or Kugler's last name (bonus points if you use both!):

Kubicek + Kugler = Kuglercek
Kubicek + sex = Kubisex
1 + 2 = kuglersex
Kugler + Leinenkugel = Leinenkuglers
corbin (September 27, 2005 at 08:09:25 AM):
cooler + kugler = wiseman's kugler
scooby + kubicek = scoobicek

i gotta say kugler's name is probably the kuglest name to use in this game.

When I have to much work to do I say "I'm inswormed with work" like to be attacked by bees.
Bean (September 27, 2005 at 12:25:23 PM):
I pictured that word spelled "enswormed" as in "enveloped" by a "sworm"
celeb (September 27, 2005 at 12:25:51 PM):
corbin (September 27, 2005 at 12:35:28 PM):
wouldn't it be swarm?

nudity + bar = tittybar?
Bean (September 27, 2005 at 12:40:49 PM):
nudity bar = new titty bar

That just blew my mind
corbin (September 28, 2005 at 07:40:59 AM):
heard a good one on "Arrested Development"

Protest Spectacular = Protestacular
Brianna (September 28, 2005 at 01:07:54 PM):
My stuttering problem just transpired:

buffaloed + baffled = buffled
Rustychu (September 29, 2005 at 01:10:17 PM):
Canada + Canadian = Canadia
Bean (September 29, 2005 at 03:50:33 PM):
Rustychu has the idea - he took two words that already have very similar meanings and combined them to create a third word, also with the same meaning.

Actually, I guess fooie did too with
supersize + enormous + gigantic = ginormousize
