Chic Murray's Funnyosities

My boss is so narrow minded that when he has an idea, it comes out folded I use to write her love letters in the sand.

Chic Murray is a cult figure of alternative humour, a comedic pioneer ranked in the highest echelons of his art in the last century and admired around the world. "Funnyosities" features a huge number of Chic’s funniest one-liners – some well known and others taken from material newly found by the great man’s family.

Tom Swifties... "The ultimate game of wordplay and intelligence"

Tom Swifties are parodies of the distinctive writing style that writer Victor Appleton used often in writing the Tom Swift adventure series (1910-present). Appleton frequently used adverbs to clarify “how” his character said something. Today, Tom Swifties are puns that creatively incorporate humor into their sentence construction. Typically, a sentence is first spoken, followed by the speaker. It then incorporates a punning adverbial word or phrase. Sometimes, a person other than “Tom” is needed to be the speaker for the pun. Here’s a sample of the over 400 Tom Swifties found in this book: "And I, I took the path less traveled by," said Tom pathetically."And they stole my mallards, too," Tom added deductively."Build it and they will come," said Tom constructively."Did you see that halter on her?" Tom asked stopping in his tracks."Help! We’re being washed over the falls," cried Tom rapidly."Hey, someone just goosed me," Tom cried foully."I always have trouble thinking of words to use when I play Scrabble," Tom said with writer’s block."I believe she’ll be able to transcribe my messages," Tom predicted."I can make some extra money during deer season cutting meat," Tom said cleverly."I got left out of the will," Tom said unfortunately."I tossed and turned and kicked the blankets off last night," Tom discovered."I’m doing pretty well in my landscaping business," said Tom raking in the cash.
