Portmanteau

The only running story-line in The League is perpetual football. It’s offensive. maybe that’s a metaphor?

I can’t stop watching it. There’s something liberating about confrontational conversation. Is that also a metaphor for football?

For as irreverent and chauvinistic as it is, linguistically it is incredibly cutting-edge.

sex-aversary – portmanteau
Equipmonk – neologism
pigeon-holing (double entendre)
