The contestants for our portmanteau challenge are finally sorted and polished. We removed proper nouns and submissions that were too gross for even our rather bawdy standards.
What we're going to do is post the contestants, then post a voting box. There are quite a few, so we thank you in advance for your patience.
The winner here receives something from the SPOGG shop (or a signed copy of Things That Make Us [Sic] once it's available), so the stakes are TERRIBLY HIGH. Please vote anyway.
It is worth observing that the members of SPOGG like to give their pets portmanteau names. Petmanteaus? Woof!
