Neologasm - The joy from the beautiful coming together of two words.

I quite enjoy blending two words. Anyone want to play?

No it won't be too soon 'til I say goodnight moon

Portmansplain - when a pedantic bloke points out that neologasm might not be the most accurate way of describing the blending of two words.

Well and truly, lol! This was troubling me as well. A portmanteau is a neologism, but a neologism isn't necessarily a portmanteau.
Another amusing thing, to me anyway, about the title is that I invented the word neologasm. Unfortunately, someone else did prior to my stroke of genius.

Cluster-fuckup mistake leading to a dangerous, mishandled situation
