How ‘bout cranky-mercialed - that feeling that (at best), inspires one to vent about the adverts on CIH.

I hate very few of these newfangled words. Two that I like are common here: adhole and adtard. I don’t know who gets credit for them.

I don't like those kinds of words either. I think they're called portmanteaus.

Yep, they are. The appellation’s original meaning is “suitcase,” from French portemanteau literally, “(it) carries (the) cloak”. (Source: dictionary.com)

I’d call these Madison Avenue words portmerdes!
