Craptastic

adjective; blending and clipping
exuding a bitter sweet feeling or connotation I have heard this word used mostly in the slang language of young teenagers. It is used in describing a situation that was both awful and appealing, in which case it is difficult to define it as being good or bad. The clipping and blending of this word takes two contradicting words and combines them. In this combination the words' contextual usage is interwoven within the word itself.
