    Just to try pinning this in the Pacific and nowhere near Europe:

    Maori for live, alive is Ora; for here is nga; for hair is hu, or huru, for forest is tane.
    Tane is the god of the forest (and large trees) in their etymology.
    So to say "the hairy (one) living the the forest", you just put: Ora nga huru tane together.

    Remarkable coincidence, mais non?

    Non! Malay and Maori are related languages in the Malayo-Polynesian family, which also includes Tagalog, Samoan, Hawaiian and many others in that region.

    Good ones; you're on a roll.

    And about, "(might be a slur i dont know I find it hilarious though)", how about, "not that there's anything wrong with that."

    Some from the Washington Post weekly Style Invitational contest:

    These are all portmanteau words, made by combining two words. The term was coined by Lewis Carroll, describing all the words he made up for "The Jabberwocky." A portmanteau is a big suitcase, named after the portemanteau, the officer in a medieval French court whose job was to carry the prince's mantel, or cape.
    • Bygonerd: Someone who can work a slide rule
    • Academythology: Get a degree so you can get a good job
    • Detroitis: What's left of a once-thriving industrial city
    • Coffeeble: Decaf latte with skim milk
    • Ancestorment: Thanksgiving dinner with the entire family
    • B-flatulence: The lowest note on a bassoon
    • Bar mitzvamoose: To forsake Jewish training one month after one's 13th birthday
    • Audibleed: The sound level at Ozzfest
    • Beersatz: Miller Lite
    • Coffinish: The deceased's destination
    • Benignominious: Telling a little white lie
    • Accidenture: Putting your foot in your mouth

    That's not slang. It's just the French word for the person who does that job. Like a saucier is a person who cooks sauces and a chocolatier is a person who makes chocolate confections. My wife is a chocolatiere.

    I don't think it's a 'real' word in English, Fraggle. Although I do find it in the Urban Dictionary. Word stealers.

    You want a portmanteau or something?

    My boyfriend has a phrase that gets on my nerves
    "welcome to planet earth"
    If I have had a bad day and I am telling him about it.

    example: I had a flat tire and when I went to change it I realized you had borrowed my jack and didn't put it back...welcome to planet earth.
    I hate when he does that.

    "Lost in space:

    Meaning that someone isn't all there.

    That's rude. "Welcome to Planet Earth" and its many variations such as "Earth to Stacie" or "How do they do things on your planet?" are ways of saying that you're out of touch with reality, or, as Cosmic puts it in his post, you're "lost in space." Your boyfriend is telling you that it's customary on this planet for someone you love to borrow something really important from your emergency equipment, and then not put it back.

    Well it's not! He was supposed to put it back. Of course we all screw up, but when we do, and it really inconveniences the other person, we apologize profusely. Buy her flowers, take her out for a nice dinner, beg her forgiveness.

    I don't know you, but I'm sure you deserve better; practically anybody deserves better than this. There's not much of a future in this relationship.

    I appreciate your post, but we have been together over 3 years and actually have a wonderful relationship. Granted he can be inconsiderate and rude at times, but so can most people. Unfortunately, most people, if they tell the honest truth, are selfish and rude now a days. As the world starts to decline, so do most of the people here.
    Just my opinion and please take no offense.
