Janky (9)

blending; adjective
Cheap, crappy quality. Often used to describe the state of possessions.
 
Janky arose from the blending of junky and skanky, both words pertaining to the inferior quality of an item/person. Because of its ending in -ky, it has become accepted in the English language as an adjective, taking on the grammatical role of the ending blended word, as many blended euphemisms do.
Etymology : Blending of junky and skanky
