Awfulsome (pronounced: aw-ful'-sum) is an unrecognized word that is the obvious combination of the words "awful" and "awesome." The practice of blending the meanings of two separate but applicable words by simply combining both words was popularized by the E&C Dynasty in early-2000.
The term can be used to describe something that is "so bad, it's almost good." VH-1 popularized its own terminology for this category with the phrase "awesomely bad." Usually, it describes something in which its strongest entertainment value is brought upon by unintentional laughter or mockery.
