Gerbwill

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: jerb wil

Sentence: In his last Gerbwill and Testament, Old Man Lemming left all the money he had squirrelled away to his pets, all of whom were rodents and made Bill the Gerbil his executor. His daughter, Peggy Lemming, thought this was an oddicile and hired a lawyer to contest it. The lawyer interrogated all the heirs, including the rat and the mouse, who both squealed. As he suspected, the rodents had hamstered the Old Man's meds, so that he got confused and rewrote the new gerbwill. Peggy got her revenge on the rodents when she used her inheritance to buy several large cats for the mansion.

Etymology: Gerbil (pet rodent) & Will (a legal document declaring a person's wishes regarding the disposal of their property when they die)
