Janky

adjective; blending
a state of being less socially advanced and crude in social graces. apparent meaning: backward and trashy. reason used: The odd sound of the word itself adds to the intended meaning of the word. Also, the –anky sounds uneducated (a stereotype of Louisiana) and it seems appropriate that it is native of Louisiana, the state it is describing.
 
When I was recounting a story of a teacher who owned 8 cats, my friend replied that owning that many cats was ridonculous.
Etymology : Blend formed from junky + stank.
