X Portmanteau Competition – The Results

Thanks to everyone who entered our little competition. We thoroughly enjoyed reading all of your concoctions.

The Judging Panel had a tough job deliberating, but in the end came to a unanimous decision.

The winning portmanteau was xegret: from xerox and regret, which describes “when you photocopy something at an office party then regret it later”.


The prize, an e-book version of The Horologicon by Mark Forsyth, goes to KayleeAnn McGregor. Well done, KayleeAnn!
