Pronunciation: pet a greed

Sentence: When wealthy Sir Hamilton Guinness expired, he left his entire estate to PETA, the organization he knew would look after his pet hamster, Heiry. Not only was this hurtful to his daughter Peta, but confusing also, because she was sure he meant her in his will. Her pedigree was not petagreed and so a legal battle ensued. It took the lawyers over 5 years to reach a settlement. The only trouble was that Heiry, like most hamsters only had a lifespan of three years. However, he did have the biggest hamster funeral is listed in the Guinness Book of Records!

Etymology: Peta (Militant Animal Rights Group-People for Ethical Treatment of Animals)& Greed (one of the 7 deadly sins;reprehensible acquisitiveness; insatiable desire for wealth) & play on Pedigreed (having a list of ancestors as proof of being a purebred animal) & Pet Agreed (animal that goes along with the decision)
