Pronunciation: smor gas hord

Sentence: Thor, being of Viking descent, had developed the habit of hiding olaf his food all around his home, so that he could eat or drink something wherever he was with little effort. He hid candies in his mail box; mead bottles in his toilet tank(Skol!); herring in his ottoman storage area; nuts in his sock drawer and potato chips in his computer desk. He called this food his smorgashoard, or so the saga goes. It seemed like a good idea until the insects and mice found his cache and overran his home. Now Thor is full of re-Norse and he will have to find other ways to be toastin' Odin, like pillaging his fridge and raiding his pantry.

Etymology: Smorgasbord (an assortment of foods served as a buffet meal) & Hoard (a secret store of valuables or money; save up as for future use)

Pronunciation: A-stash-away

Sentence: Alice's "aystashaway" was discovered by Sam the computer technician at her work today as he was called in because the computer system shut down all of a sudden. He found her secret "aystashaway" and Alice went pale and was unable to speak because her mouth was crammed full with a stale doughnut. After Sam left...she hurried over to the back of the computer tower and unscrewed the screws and retrieved her other doughnut in her other "aystashaway". Alice breathed a sigh of relief smiled, like a little kid with a big secret and sat down to drink her coffee. The next thing she knew the computer tower started to smoke and spark and out went all the lights in the building! Then... the fire alarm went off and the water sprinklers came on. That day she decided it's best to keep her "aystashaway" away from electronic devices.
