Tracy Wuster.

The portmanteau is one of my favorite forms of humor in everyday life.  I combine words constantly around the house.  Sometimes the result is humorous; sometimes it only causes my wife to laugh at me.  But one portmanteau has found its way into my everyday lexicon and spread to friends and family: productination = productive + procrastination.

Never does doing the dishes, filing paperwork, or writing a blog post sound as good as when one has a deadline for an essay, or even better, a stack of papers to grade.  In this spirit, we will offer a regular feature of articles and links on humor-related topics to allow you to productinate when you have better things to do.  If you have links of articles or sites to look at, please email me at wustert@gmail.com or add a comment to the post.
