We’re in a f***ing stagmire

Long Term Parking

Long Term Parking (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

This is a word blend malaphor (see my discussion of word blends in the 2/2/13 post, Portmanteaus and Single Word Malaphors) of quagmire and stagnant.   This now famous malaphor was spoken by Little Carmine in perhaps the best episode of The Sopranos – Season 5’s Long Term Parking episode.  Little Carmine is a fountain of malaprops and malaphors, making him one of the more humorous characters in the series.
