Some “Tom Swifties”

July 1, 2008 at 10:10 am (Amusement)

From my British daily trivia and random information calendar (and this for Monday, June 30, 2008):

‘Who discovered radium?’ asked Marie curiously.
‘It can’t be the circuit-breaker,’ Tom refused.
‘Use the Newton-Raphson method,’ Tom iterated.
‘Are you an alto or a tenor?’ inquired Tom.
‘Open the soup,’ said Tom cannily.
‘It should have an apple in its mouth,’ said Tom pig-headedly.
‘Yes, we have no bananas,’ said Tom fruitlessly.
‘The ship is mine,’ declared Fletcher Christian bountifully.
‘Eins, zwei, drei, fünf,’ counted Tom fearlessly.
‘I’d like some lemon rind with my coffee,’ said Clare zestfully.
‘I just rested it on the windowsill,’ alleged Tom.
‘I’ve swallowed a fly,’ said Tom with bated breath.
‘I am the world’s best phlebotomist,’ boasted Tom vaingloriously.
‘I’m sleeping with my gamekeeper,’ said the lady chattily.
