Excellent! Big Grin

By the way, during filming of the recent movie Georgia Rule, which focuses on three generations of women, conflicts simmered between the three generations of actresses, especially over the pet deer that the ingenue, Lindsey Lohan, kept on the set. During shooting breaks, the senior actress was shocked to see her feeding it petit fours and absinthe.
. . ."How can you feed liqueur to that thing, Lohan?" she asked.
. . .Lohan's reply? "Absinthe makes the hart grow, Fonda."

"I'm a-wearing this here tux," said Tom informally.
"The next step is to pour the melted wax into the mold," said Tom informingly.
"I'm at the stage where my opinions are still developing," said Tom informatively.
"Our band is in position for the half-time show," said Tom informationally.

"She has put on weight," said Tom emphatically.

"I've borrowed my sister's camping gear," said Tom insistently.

"The wind blows west," said Tom vainly.

"My internist said 'Have the operation,' and my surgeon said 'Don't have the operation,' and somehow that made sense!" said Tom paradoxically.

For afficionados of the US TV sitcom:

"Faith, I'd like to eat you next, after digesting your sister," said Tom the cannibal, hopefully.

Or ...

"Hope, can I eat your sister now?" asked Tom the cannibal, faithlessly.

and that was the intended double meaning of the original. I guess I'm not conveying my message well on some of these double meaning Swifties of mine. I really should leave it to you masters of the Swifty.

Big Grin Nice one, jerry! Mind you, it took a moment to sink in. I thought to myself, "Why specifically Uncle Tom?"

Hey, Hab, thanks for finding and reviving this thread! I looked for it last week, but to no avail.

"Hey, you pretty little Dryad, let's get naked and pollinate," Tom said gymnospermatically.

Tom failed, however: Someone played the National Anther, disrupting his activity, after which he didn't have the stamen-a to finish. Roll Eyes Go ahead, GROAN! Big Grin

Ohhh, so it was EWE, Proof! Well, good on yer!

I was delighted to see names in this thread that I had not seen in years. Some have died, some have moved on, and some are just in hibernation or estivation. Maybe we can get some back!
