Give a man a fish and he can eat for one day; give a man a fishing pole and he will find an excuse to never work again.

That, too.


"I have to do three sets of those movements, ten times in each set," was Tom's reply.

As Ogden Nash wrote,

"There was a young belle of old Natchez
Who ripped all her garmets to patchez
When comment arose
On the state of her clothes
She drawled, when Ah itches, Ah scratchez!"

"Belle, scratch Mah itch!" Tom ejaculated

"Damn crustaceans are biting my toes," said Tom, crabbily.

"My pants just split," said Tom, unseemly.

"This is excellent Chinese soup," said Tm, wantonly.

"Shall I lick off that ketchup that you spilled down your dress," Tom said saucily.

"...and I don't suppose it was for any legitimate purpose, either," he insinuated.

"Watch me flex," Tom insinewated.

PS: Kudos, Hab - a double pun with "implied!"

"This coat is lovely, but where's the cat?" Tom's wife inferred.

Not a Swifty but I wonder, if someone seeks to have sex with a bicycle, does that make him a pedalphile? Or must it be a very new bike with training wheels?

A propos of double-puns - consider

"Ah, I see you've been out hunting for mink," Tom's wife inferred.

"He's over his head in manure," Tom's wife said, as he was interred.

"Hand me the lye," Tom said caustically. (Tom was a base fellow, y'see)

Should be in World's Worst Joke, maybe:

Two hydrogen atoms are walking down the street.
One says "My goodness, I've lost an electron!"
"Are you positive?" asks the other.

I got a charge out of it! Of course, if he'd been a boy with a great voice in a medieval church choir, he'd end up as a neutrino.

Venial at worst:

"I heard tell you used to enjoy beef on Fridays, Father Xavier," he insinuated.

"Rotten SOB or not, we've still got to use the defibrillator on this politician," Dr Tom said repulsively.

"He'd had a heart attack, and I thought it was appropriate to leave the aircraft and take him to a hospital," Tom explained patiently.

(And if it had been his own illness it would have been impatiently...)
