Attention Word Nerds: Food-Related Tom Swifties
Over the weekend, the New York Times' Schott's Vocab, a blog devoted to language, asked readers to submit Tom Swifties, a phrase with a punning relationship between the adverb describing the speaker and the action. There were some good food-centric ones in the mix:
"Matzoh balls and gefilte fish for me," said Tom judiciously.
“I adore hamburgers," he said with relish.
“Why, that’s the best fruit smoothie I’ve ever tasted!” Tom said with aplomb.
“I’m starving!” the crow squawked ravenously.
