Portmanteau words

A portmanteau word is a word that has been made up of two other words. Here are some examples:
  • brash - brave/bold and rash
  • edutainment - education and entertainment

Using a dictionary, can you find two words and make up a portmanteau word? How many can you make in two minutes? Can you put them into a poem?
