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)
