“I’m here to treat Ariel,” said Murdoch

Like puns? Like them but would never admit it? Welcome to the world of Tom Swifties, a slightly more literate form of the painful humor. There are some remarkable examples posted in this Metafilter thread under the name Bradlands. I have it on good authority that they were collected from a group of friends. A very silly group of friends.
