Pronunciation: bed lam o flahj

Sentence: As the doorbell announcing the arrival of their new cleaning lady rang, they looked around. The bedlamouflage would work as long as she didn't touch the cupboard door, look in the guest bathroom and the sedatives they'd given the cat didn't wear off too soon.
