Last week was National Library Week, and one of my favorite online comics celebrated by re-running this strip with library-related Tom Swifties. Can you think of others?

There's a long thread already running in Wordplay.

"Here, let me put your arm back on," Tom rejoined.


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.

I just learned that a Norwegian writer developed the international book cataloging system: Henrik Isbn. He lived in a Doll's House with a compulsive eater named Hedda Gobbler. Her brother with urinary problems, Pee-er Gynt, was An Enemy of The People for having goosed The Wild Duck.

"Yes, I am left-handed," said Tom, sinisterly.

"Where is the list of goods I shipped," Tom said manifestly.

"Where's the nearest Hobby Lobby," Thomasina said craftily.

"I'll show you exactly what porn I'm talking about, " the senator said explicitly.

"I know a doctor who can sew your hand back on," was Tom's rejoinder.

"Be careful at the hockey game," said Tom, puckishly.

"Sorry I hit your car with my hatchet," said Tom, accidentally.

"My, what big teeth yu have, grandma,' said 7-year-old (soon to be 8) Red Riding Hood.

"How did my foot get up my butt?" asked Tom, contortedly.
