Book Description

Tom Swifties are puns. Initially they parodied the writing style in Tom Swift adventure books, in which the way a character says something was always described in the dialogue tag.

Here's line from an actual Tom Swift book, Tom Swift and His Motor Cycle:

"Mr. Damon," said Tom quickly, "will you sell me that motor-cycle?"

And here are a couple classic Tom Swifties:

"Darn it! I've dropped my toothpaste," Tom said crestfallen.

"This must be an aerobics class," Tom worked out.

The author has collected over two hundred Tom Swifties in this funny little volume. Some are classic, some are new, and reference pop culture. Some are ribald, and some, are cryptic and will require thought.

This collection absolutely delivers what it promises, but what it promises isn't pretty!
This books is full of total dad "jokes": horrible puns that make you cringe and groan. You might lose friendships if you repeat them in public. And watch who you share the puns with lest you suffer the Grand Trio of geek indignities: swirlies, noogies and wedgies.
On the flip side, I can see them coming in handy if you're trying to impress your future father-in-law.
Well worth a buck. After reading The Worst Punishment, you'll catch yourself trying to make your own puns. Just don't let anyone else catch you!
