gubbish /guhb'*sh/ /n./ [a portmanteau of `garbage' and
`rubbish'; may have originated with SF author Philip K. Dick]
Garbage; crap; nonsense. "What is all this gubbish?" The
opposite portmanteau `rubbage' is also reported; in fact, it was
British slang during the 19th century and appears in Dickens.
