Tom Swifties

Visible to anyone in the world

Tom Swifties are a form of humorous wordplay. For example:

Go to the rear of the ship at once", said Tom sternly.

"Who left the toilet seat down?", asked Tom peevishly.

Here's a few I came up with:

"I marked your answer wrong", said Tom crossly.

"Life itself is a game of chance", explained Tom winsomely.

"One day all this will be yours", Tom stated willingly.

"Calculate the average for yourself!", snarled Tom meanly.

"They insist on keeping me in overnight", Tom snapped impatiently.

"I think I've sprained my ankle", muttered Tom disjointedly.

"I prefer to live in an apartment", answered Tom flatly.

"I'm counting how many pots of tea you lot make", Tom pointed out brutally.

"What's for afters?", asked Tom sweetly.

"Sorry, your answer was correct after all", Tom remarked.

Very clever!  I've been driving myself mad trying to come up with some! Please do not add to my list of procrastination tools!

"I wish I did not have so many procrastination tools" said Tom lately.

"I can only find Faith and Charity" said Tom hopelessly.

"Come sit here by the fire " said Tom warmly.

"Ain't gonna need this house no longer, ain't gonna need this house no more" said Tom shakily.

"Sets, categories, genres, classifications, types, classes, sorts and varieties" said Tom kindly.

Literally, Tom said "It was the best of times, it was the worst of times".

Technically, it was Tom who said "The BIOS initiates the bootstrap which points at Grub that auto-loads Linux from partition 2 on hd0 after the default time-out".

Tom phoned work and said "I god a bad dold in da dose an dond fee wery wew" poorly.

"I caught the train by the skin of my teeth and arrived at spot on 9" said Tom justly.

"I must stop working Saturdays and Sundays as well, it's exhausting me" said Tom weekly.

"Now I've lost Charity too!" cried Tom faithfully.

"I must stop procrastinating" said Tom finally.

"Heat it up and separate the liquid out from the solids" Tom clarified.

"I put weight on" Tom expanded.

"What was the result of your pregnancy test?" asked Tom expectantly.

"Don't you know where to put the word count?" as Tom said afterwards.
