Inferretance

Created by: Nosila

Pronunciation: in fer ret ans

Sentence: When Old MacDonald bought the farm, he left a sizeable inferretance to keep all the animals on his farm in style. Talk about putting the FUN in funeral! His daughter,Petula, was fur-ious. The Pet Heirs flew when she found out at the reading of the will. Instead of her getting all his loot, Eddy the Fox Terrier would become an Heirrier. It was fowl play that the hens and turkeys and geese got more than a poultry sum. Garret the Ferret would ferret away his inferretance and Hammy the Hamster could now afford to move to the Hamptons. Billy the Goat was now Will Off and could afford a Nanny. Ferdinand had now become more valuabull and married Bessie,the cash cow. Arnold the Pig could now invest in hog futures and Mr. Ed, the Clydesdale could now afford to play the horses, as long as he was carefoal. Cyril the cat was feline rich and people flocked to meet Dolly, the Dollar Llama. Petula further fumed when she heard the minister say, ewe guessed it, that The Sheep will inherit the worth. Talk about being fleeced...

Etymology: Inheritance (that which is inherited; a title or property or estate that passes by law to the heir on the death of the owner) & Ferret (a rodent pet;domesticated European polecat bred for hunting rats and rabbits)
