Avocadaver

mrskellyscl

Created by: mrskellyscl

Pronunciation: a-vo-ca-da-ver

Sentence: No one really knew Allen, even though he had worked in the office for almost 30 years. He was such a conscientious employee that he was often seen sitting at his desk in his cubicle at all hours of the day and night. He even kept a spare suit in his office and a drawer full of snacks, so it never occurred to anyone that there could be an avocadaver in the corner cubbie for nearly a week. When the office began to reek, the other employees all started to accuse their coworkers of leaving a tuna sandwich or something worse sitting out somewhere. Everyone denied that it was their sandwich and declared that it wasn't their responsibility to clean it up. So they all kept working and pretended they didn't smell anything.

Etymology: avocation -- profession, occupation: cadaver -- dead body
