Chop-and-jam … and woof

Nancy, as no one will be surprised to hear, always does an excellent job of pointing out just which portmanteau names and brands are elegant, and which are clumsy. And “chop-and-jam” is an excellent way to describe this clunky one, which combines “veterinary” and “ethical” to form nothing at all elegant:

I feel like I’m lisping the word “vesicle” – which is not a word I use all that often.

Great idea, less-than-great name

Compostable, eco-friendly, sustainable – all great attributes, particularly when it comes to party supplies. But what doesn’t sound so great is a name that rhymes with

Musty
Crusty
Lusty
Busty
Fusty
Gusty
Dusty
Rusty

I present you Susty Party: 

Again, great idea, but the name is just trying too hard.
