Or WHAT!?


Chop sticks
or
chap stick?
Chap Stick

Both touch the lips.

Tube socks
or
tube steaks?

Both retain water.

Saxophone
or
phone sex?

Both captive…ate.

Bow Flex
or
flexing beau?
Both impress.


Violin
or
Lynn is vile?

Both can squawk.

Superman
or
rubber band?

Both are a stretch.

Gypsy queens
or
Burger kings?

Both are loosely royal.

Curtain call
or
certain fall

Both are taking bows.

Poetic justice
or
just a poet

Both are needful.

  1. Someone was in a playful mood - and this playfulness with words is wonderful.

  2. Entertaining look at life - pointing out the similarities and the dualities in so many (and not so obvious) aspects of life...fun little exercise.

  6. You presented some interesting narrative comparisons without being judgmental. Which is a feat. You've left the reader there to judge for themselves using their own where with all to decide if your conclusion are proper ones or not. Nice and compactly done Jerry.

  7. I was trying to think of one and drawing a blank, Jerry. Great wordplay, logic play too. My favorite was Gypsy Queens and Burger Kings—both are loosely royal. Ha! Very witty across the board with these pairing. Great conclusion too.
