Hovernearkeeler

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: Hov er neer kee ler

Sentence: Mervin Keeler was a respected accountant and chief executive in the firm of actuaries, Keeler Over and Howe. He was a very busy man. His new assistant, Juwanna, was becoming a royal pain to him. She demanded his attention 24/7 and got it into her head that they were an item. Because she had become a Hovernearkeeler, all the staff would hum the Hava Nagila song when she was pestering him. It was becoming embarrassing to Mervin, who was already happily wed to the senior boss' daughter. The doodling on his assistant's notepad suggestively summed his feelings...she had daydreamingly written over and over "Juwanna Keeler...Juwanna Keeler...Juwanna Keeler". And Mervin thought he did!

Etymology: Hover (linger, lurk near someone/thing); Near Keeler (by someone named Keeler) and rhymes with:Hava Nagila (translates from Hebrew as "Let's Rejoice";traditional song to dance the Hora, traditional Israeli dance; the most famous Israeli folk song, danced at weddings and Bar Mitvahs! Everybody sing: Hava nagila, hava nagila Hava nagila venis'mecha Repeat Hava neranena, hava neranena Hava neranena venis'mecha Uru, uru achim!)
