Created by: silveryaspen

Pronunciation: ground - roos

Sentence: Heidi ran the accounting firm's chop shop. You had to be very nice to her, or she would use her shredder's axes, on more than the big cheeses' official litter! If you upset her, she'd zoom into your office, and run off with your account books, then feed them to her cutting-edge machinery! She'd deliver the groundrues to them, turning the once cocky accountants into cowering little groundruesters, as the IRS swooped down on them.

Etymology: Ground - past tense of grind, an action that chops things into small bits. Rue: to regret.
