I've re discovered Tom Swifties lately. Some of them are so clever. eg
"I manufacture tabletops for shops," said Tom counterproductively.
"It's not fair!" said Tom darkly.
"I haven't had any tooth decay yet," said Tom precariously.
"Put that gun down!" Said Tom disarmingly.
Got any good ones?

Ren, there are about a dozen quizzes on them- have you played them yet? Just type 'swifty' into the 'Find' box, and go for it.

And I agree, they are groaningly punny, smile

those were good Ren : )

Here's a couple more:

"I need a pencil sharpener," said Tom bluntly.
"I only have diamonds, clubs and spades," said Tom heartlessly.

"I can only see Dorothy and Bing", he said hopelessly.
