I hope this gets some discussion started for a fun thread if not y'all should check your pulse.


Lexophile

"Lexophile" is a word used to describe those that have a love for words, such as "you can tune a piano, but you can't tuna fish", or "to write with a broken pencil

A competition to see who can come up with the best lexophiles is held every year. This year's winning submission is posted at the very end.

-- When fish are in schools, they sometimes take

-- A thief who stole a calendar got twelve months.

-- When the smog lifts in Los Angeles U.C.L.A.

-- The batteries were given out free of charge.

-- A dentist and a manicurist married. They fought tooth and nail.

-- A will is a dead giveaway.

-- With her marriage, she got a new name and a dress

-- A boiled egg is hard to beat.

-- When you've seen one shopping center you've seen a mall.

-- Police were summoned to a daycare center where a three-year-old was resisting a rest.

-- Did you hear about the fellow whose entire left side was cut off? He's all right now.

-- A bicycle can't stand alone; it's just two tired.

-- When a clock is hungry it goes back four

-- The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine is now fully recovered.

-- He had a photographic memory which was never developed.

-- When she saw her first strands of gray hair she thought she'd dye.

-- Acupuncture is a jab well done. That's the point

AND THE CREAM OF THE TWISTED CROP:

-- Those who get too big for their pants will be totally exposed in the end.

Can't imagine what took me so long to twig to this, but the phrases here have nothing to do with lexophile. If a lexophile is a person who loves words, then what does a list of puns have to do with said person?

I may love plays on words, and I love words in general; but what does that make me?
