Puzzle #77 – 2013 in Portmanteaux

Happy 2014! As predicted, today’s puzzle is a review of the past year. It seems like 2012 was a lot more positive than 2013, so I decided to focus on some of the new lingo that developed this past year. There are some words you might expect to show up in this puzzle, but I’ve restricted it to words that originated last year.

Over the past few weeks, some solvers have mentioned malware issues with old posts on this site. After some suggestions from one particular user, I have swept the site for malware, so now everything should be above board. Thanks for your concern!

    Great way to start the new year! Excellent constructor + witty clueing = Nevillish. Two of my favorites were Fife player and Device for making hot dogs. Lots of funny fill.
