word(?) of the day: crisitunity

Helen Lewis just tweeted:

Horrific portmanteaux just spoken by @alexhern“crisitunity”. Joins “grexit”, “chillaxing” and “IPOcalypse” on my personal hate list.

(Of course she means portmanteau.) Of these, I think the only one with a claim to be a word is chillax – it’s as silly as the other three but it’s got some enduring usefulness.
