Yes, I couldn’t remember the word so that was the closest I could call it. That’s right. Thanks!Sorry to be that guy, but you mean portmanteau, not juxtaposition. A portmanteau is when you combine two words together into a single shorter word (usually with a shared syllable, as is the case here). A juxtaposition is when you put two things next to each other that otherwise don't fit together to intentionally make a point.
