Tom Swiftie Week: It All Ends In -Ly
January 26, 2010
It’s Day Two of Tom Swiftie Week!
To recap, Tom Swifties — named after the titular character in a series of bombastically written novels, as pictured at right — are phrases in which a sentence spoken by “Tom” is paired with an adverbial pun.
So here are a few more of mine. Feel free to post your own in the comments!
- “I’m sorry for signaling S.O.S. again,” Tom said remorsefully.
“This Budwesier will never substitute for a good Chardonnay,” said Tom whinily.
“You just poked the quarterback in the eye!” Tom said jocularly.
“I’ve figured out just where we can get the raw materials for our wig-making business,” Tom said gravely.
“I know how you could help my friends and I make our Three Stooges tribute act just perfect,” Tom said piously.
“Look, I’m the Hindu god Shiva!” Tom said handily.
