Created by: OZZIEBOB

Pronunciation: kram-BIV-uh-luh ns

Etymology: Blend of CRAM: to press something into something else; jam or cram beyond the normal comfortable capacity, as on a plane or train & AMBIVALENCE: similar conflicting feelings; mixed feelings of uncertainty or emotion, as between safety & unsafety.
