Booporium (boo + emporium)

Target stores, beginning September 2017, called its Halloween display a “booporium” (boo + emporium), similar to “bootique” (boo + boutique). Many people, however, pronounced the word as “BOOPorium” instead of “BOOporium.”

WHO signed off on this blend? This blend is just so bad— I find the ‘P’ particularly intrusive. Anyway, welcome to the Halloween Booporium.

Store has its Halloween section up, and is calling it a “Booporium”.
Which I can’t help but read as a place to purchase boops.
